This HDMI to USB video capture recorder with HDMI bypass can support resolutions up to 18Gbps (600MHz) 4K UHD with HDR (via the bypass path) while simultaneously streaming the audio and video signal at 1080p to a USB connected PC for capture or re-broadcast. HDMI sources up to 1080p60 are supported for capture without modification, while 4K sources will be automatically scaled down to 1080p. The use of a special video timing stabilization feature helps to ensure that the USB capture stream won’t lock up or drop, even if the HDMI input source is intermittent or becomes disconnected. Digital stereo audio from either HDMI (LPCM 2.0) or the 3.5mm analog audio input will be captured with the HDMI video source and is selectable within the configuration software.
USB capture is accomplished using the UAC (USB Audio Class) and UVC (USB Video Class) standards, allowing the unit to support most common video capture, chat, or streaming software, including support for the Free OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) streaming software which is available for Windows PC, macOS and Linux. The unit is powered directly by the USB 3.0 port so an external power supply is not required (A Y-cable is required when connected via USB 2.0 in order to deliver the necessary power). Availability and access to the controllable features of the unit depend on the capture software used.
