The most versatile one is the USB Capture DVI Plus, which captures DVI, VGA, HDMI, component and CVBS. It is definitely an ideal tool if you have classic video/gaming equipment such as a DVD player, PS3, Xbox 360, or if you need to capture from medical imaging equipment with various resolutions. Max input resolution is 2048×2160. It can deliver the captured video to the computer at up to 2048×1080 or 1920×1200.

USB Capture HDMI Plus and USB Capture SDI Plus have an input interface as well as a loop through one, which enable monitoring the image while streaming/recording. Different audio input and output functions have also been added to the devices.

The USB capture devices can be used in various industries, for example, game/live events broadcasting and recording, video conferencing, medical imaging, and surveillance. You can use it to capture a video output device or the desktop of the streaming computer.

  • Video Processing by Hardware - The USB Capture Plus Family has video processing functions include up/down conversion, frame rate control, brightness/saturation/contrast/hue adjustment, deinterlacing. The device have powerful FPGAs to process video before transferring data to the computer, causing 0 CPU usage.
  • USB Capture Utility - A software included with the device to enable advanced functions and more control over the device, such as resolution and frame rate setting, color space conversion, vertical flip and mirror, extraction of HDMI information, EDID, cropping and more. Click here for the software.
  • Better Audio - The USB Capture Family adopts ASRC (Asynchronous Sample Rate Converter) technology, which is used in professional USB sound cards.

    The USB Capture Plus Family is compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.

    The device is compatible with most popular professional third party software for streaming, recording, video conferencing, video stitching, VJ, etc. Check the compatible software.

    The devices use USB 3.0 interface and no external power is needed. They also support USB 2.0 port, but the real-time frame rate will be reduced due to limited bandwidth. Users can also use a USB 3.0-to-Type C cable to connect it via USB Type C interface on the computer.
