Capture is the process and the result of capturing : catch, apprehend, stop, imprison or imprison. The term is often used with respect to the arrest of a criminal by the forces of security .
For example: "After extensive persecution, the police managed to capture the assailant", “The fugitive has a capture request ordered by a federal judge”, “I worked five years to get the capture of this drug dealer”.
The idea Capture can be linked to various police and legal notions. If a police officer observes a person committing a crime, he can capture it. A judge, on the other hand, can order the capture of an individual for several reasons. In each case, the capture can refer to specific situations: the capture can be a apprehension , a detention or a imprisonment , to cite some possibilities.
In the field of computing , is known as screenshot to the image that is generated to store what is being displayed on the screen of a computer (computer) or other device. This screenshot is a kind of "Photography" of the above.
In order to make a screenshot possible, two essential parts of the process : the physical component, which in this case is the graphics card, and the logical one, the algorithm programmed to allow the user to take a copy of the images they are seeing on the screen and save it for later use.
Although current computing allows us to work in environments with great dynamism, with endless interactive elements and a high level of animation, dispositives such as computers and phones show us many pictures per second that generate the illusion of moving images, just like the first projectors of the last century (saving the great technological differences between both media).
In other words, the "screenshot" screen is nothing more than the action of storing a image static that was already in the device memory. In this field there is another concept that also uses the term capture, although in this case for the video; here the road forks, since this can be done with a program or with an external team.
The video capture It is one of the processes most used today by specialists and fans of the world of videogames, as it allows them to have a replica of a game session that can then examine as many times as they want to evaluate issues such as the resolution at which the graphics render the engine, the visual effects it uses, the fluidity it is capable of offering and the color amplitude.
When an external device is used, the process could be compared with the filming of a screen, although in this case the resulting image is perfect, since there is no external interference. One of the most common configurations is to connect the cable that would normally go to the monitor in the capture machine, and then from there take out another cable to finally send the video to the monitor The best equipment is usually very expensive, since they must have the technology to record high quality video without loss.
Catching a fish, on the other hand, is the objective of fishing. In some cases fishing is sporty and the specimen is then returned to the water. In the hunting , catching a animal usually implies his death: “I struggled for two hours to finalize the capture of this shark”, "The authorities recalled that the capture of foxes is prohibited in the national park", "Juan almost achieved his first capture in the lake, but finally the fish fled".
