Product Description

PC Gamers, the days of lagging CPU performance while recording your epic gaming moments are over. We understand the importance of FPS, and if you are always missing those precious milliseconds to nail your enemy due to an unstable frame rate, Live Gamer HD has your back. The Live Gamer HD is a PCI-E card that enables you to record and stream your game footage in crisp 1080p. Designed specifically for serious gamers who capture/stream gameplay via PC, this capture device is preloaded with an H.264 hardware encoder, significantly lowering your CPU usage and creating smaller files for editing. What that really means is this there is no need to set up another PC to record game footage, game and record from the same machine so the only performance hits you see are the punch combos you are delivering to your opponents face. Plus, with the dedicated Hot Button, you can start recording at a moments notice, even when you are in the heat of battle. It even has an HDMI connection so you can capture and record from game consoles. This HDMI pass-through function guarantees a zero-delay HD gaming experience even while recording, so you can focus on laying waste to that horde of zombies, not checking your recording/streaming settings. On top of that, it can be directly connected to streaming platforms like RECentral, so sharing and preserving your legendary matches is easier than ever. Thanks to the H.264 hardware compressing technique, video files are small, but high-quality (up to 60,000kbps!) perfect for saving or uploading to YouTube. With TwitchTV, Ustream, and XSplit Broadcaster integration, you can even broadcast live gameplay with ease.
