Magewell launches USB video capture devices at ISE 2017

Magewell is to launch the USB Capture Plus series, the latest additions to the company's USB Capture family of video interface devices, on booth 8-F235 at ISE 2017.

Magewell's USB Capture Plus devices enable all types of computers including laptops to capture professional video and audio signals through a standard USB 3.0 interface.

Featuring a driver-free design and automatic input detection for plug-and-play operation, the dongles support Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems and offer compatibility with streaming, encoding, live production, collaboration, video conferencing and lecture capture software.

Available in three models with a choice of input connectivity, the USB Capture Plus series is suitable for applications ranging from broadcast, live event streaming and medical imaging to corporate training and gaming.

The USB Capture HDMI Plus captures video up to 1920x1200, 1920x1080 or 2048x1080 at 60 frames per second over an HDMI interface. Loop-through connectivity enables source signals to be simultaneously sent to a monitor or projector without the need for an HDMI splitter. HDMI embedded audio is supported, while an analog microphone input enables live narration during capture, useful for computers that lack their own audio inputs.

The USB Capture HDMI Plus also supports 4K HDMI inputs at 60fps (with 4:2:0 colour subsampling) or 30fps (4:4:4), down-converting them automatically to HD for capture and recording.

The USB Capture SDI Plus provides similar functionality for professional broadcast and production workflows, capturing video up to 1080p60 with embedded audio via 3Gbps SDI.

The third new model, the USB Capture DVI Plus, can capture video up to 1200p60 through its DVI interface -- with down-conversion from inputs up to 2048x2160 -- and again offers line-level, analog audio input and output. The DVI model can also capture HDMI signals with embedded audio, as well as VGA or component analog video signals, with the use of simple adapters.
