What is an HDMI capture card?

A capture card, as the name implies, is a device that captures video from one source and transmits it through an HDMI cable to another destination. It's often used in professional broadcast environments or for live streaming on Twitch.

Capture cards are so important because they allow us to take our videos up a notch with their high-quality encoding capabilities by converting them into digital files which can be played back during editing stages of your production process without any quality losses

How do I use HDMI capture card?

The best way to set up a capture card is by running an HDMI cable from your console to the input port, then run another one from there to your monitor or TV. Then just plug it into you computer with the USB cable and let it do its thing!

Highly recommended capture device.

Well made, inside and out. A wonderful alternative to other more pricey devices on the market! Always better to buy American! This capture card is extremely easy to use...plug and play, no extra hassle. It's a sturdy workhorse. I bought my card several months ago. Since then, I have put it through rigerous repeated use and many long hour sessions. It performed spectacularly and just keeps running. It can get hot, so keep it in a ventilated spot if you plan on using it for extended sessions. The normal heat that occurs from a extended graphically intense session doesn't change quality or performance. Buy this device, you won't be disappointed.
