Capture or stream 1080p video 

This versatile capture device features an SD card slot, which lets you record video directly to a card without having to connect the capture device to your computer. It’s the perfect way to save time, while adding support for non-Windows® based platforms such as Mac computers or Android™ tablets.

For hassle-free video streaming, the capture box also has a built-in RJ45 network port that enables you to connect the capture device directly to your router or switch. With this standalone network connectivity you can instantly stream your video source over the Internet using streaming services such as Twitch®.

Plus, the included software lets you take screenshots, schedule recordings and instantly stream your video source over the Internet. The software is compatible with NTSC and PAL systems, which is perfect for professional video archiving applications where source media can change from project to project.

Hassle-free operation

This device features one-key capture for simple push-button video recording using the included software, or push-button capture and streaming while in standalone mode.The built-in video pass-through ports enable real-time video review while you capture or stream content.

To maximize portability, the capture device is USB powered, so you don’t have to use an additional power adapter or find an available wall outlet.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NO S-Video!! Tech specs list S-video in and out. There is neither. I was planning to use S-video output to a monitor but that's not possible. Would be nice to have some option other than HDMI. I don't need HDMI quality for monitoring purposes. Tech specs need to be corrected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This device is a dream to use Very pleased with how small and light this capture device turned out to be. USB powered is an added bonus and reduces cable clutter. Setup was easy though the included streaming software is light on features. I was able to get it working with OBS with relative ease and was immensely impressed with the output quality. I would definately recommend this device to anyone looking for a small, light, capture card capable of high quality output. I received this product in exchange for an unbiased review.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings on this one This is an interesting product but I did have some issues with connections dropping. I was using this unit with windows 10 and was using a fairly powerful pc. Installation appeared to be easy and i had no issues. I was using an old dvd/vcr combo unit to bring in some old tapes. The software works easily enough but for some reason it would occasionally just drop out and I would loose connection. I have used an internal card before and have never had this drop out. I am assuming it may have to do with it being Usb based. I am going to attempt direct to sd which i think will be just what may do the trick for me.Overall the quality was ok. I just have this drop out which to me is frustrating.I received this in exchange for an unbiased review

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Video Capture and Streaming I have been in the AV/IT Integration space for over 30 years. I found this unit easy to setup and use on my Microsoft, Android and Apple devices. I like the SD card slot, which lets you record video directly to a card without having to connect the capture device to your computer. The included software enabled me to stream and record content with my Windows computer and take screenshots, schedule recordings and instantly stream video over the Internet. A bonus feature is that this device is USB powered, which eliminates an additional power adapter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Constantly dropped connection to twitch I was trying to livestream a wedding to Twitch and it was constantly dropping the connection every 20-30 seconds and then it would reconnect. With that kind of flakey connection, it was completely unusable. I ended up using a laptop and a hangouts livestream to youtube which worked perfectly (and proved the internet connection was not the issue). I can't comment on the SD card because I never used that feature. If you are considering this product for live streaming, you may want to look at Teradek.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't work for live streaming to youtube We bought it as it was supposed to work with live streaming to youtube. But sadly, it does not work. the audio of the live stream is so choppy that it is unusable.Very disappointed.
