When it comes to streaming, both at home and at events, one of the companies that many content producers rely on is AVerMedia. Their line of Live Gamer and Live Gamer Portable capture cards are some of the most-used out there.
The company has now announced a new series of capture cards designed to work with 4K, ultra HD resolutions. The first of these is the Live Gamer 4K. This internal, PCIe capture card can capture 4K (2160p) high dynamic range video at 60fps. In addition to this, it can also capture lower resolutions at even higher framerates, up to 240fps at 1080p.
For those who need an external capture card, the company has also revealed the Live Gamer Ultra. This capture card connects to a laptop or computer via USB 3.1 and can capture 4K high dynamic range video at up to 30fps. Like the Live Gamer 4K, it can also capture higher framerate video at lower resolutions (again, topping at 240fps at 1080p). In addition to this, the card also offers full 4K HDR passthrough at 60fps, and HD 1080p passthrough at 240fps.
Both will come with AVerMedia’s RECentral software that allows for simultaneous streaming to Twitch, YouTube, and Mixer, as well as CyberLink’s PowerDirector 15 4K video editing software. For those interested, both of these cards are set to ship on June 25. The Live Gamer 4K will retail for $299.99, while the Live Gamer Ultra will retail for $249.99.
