Magewell ships 4K USB video capture devices

Magewell USB Capture HDMI 4K Plus

Magewell is now shipping two 4K models in the company's USB Capture Plus family of plug-and-play, external video capture devices.

Available immediately, Magewell's 4K USB Capture Plus devices enable all types of computers including laptops to capture video at resolutions up to 4096x2160 through a standard USB 3.0 interface.

Featuring driver-free installation and automatic input detection for true plug-and-play operation, USB Capture Plus devices bring Ultra HD sources into Windows, Mac or Linux software for live streaming, encoding, collaboration, medical imaging, lecture capture and more.

The USB Capture SDI 4K Plus captures 4K video at 30 frames per second over its 6Gbps SDI interface, while the USB Capture HDMI 4K Plus supports 4K inputs up to 60fps via HDMI 2.0 connectivity, capturing them at 30fps. High-quality video processing such as up/down/cross-conversion and image adjustments are performed by the devices' integrated FPGA, maximising host system CPU availability for third-party software.

Both models include loop-through connections and support embedded audio, as well as a separate analog audio input and output for capture and monitoring.
