Product ID: PEXHDCAP60L2
This PCIe video capture card lets you record 1080p HD video and 2-channel stereo audio (HDMI/RCA) to your computer system. With multiple video inputs, including HDMI, DVI, VGA and component, this all-in-one capture card can record original content from virtually any device.
You can install the card into any low-profile or full-profile PCIe slot, including fixed workstations such as 2U or 4U rack-mounted servers or media centers. Installing your capture device internally through PCIe ensures a secure and reliable way to capture video.
Seamless picture quality at 60 frames per second
With frame rates up to 60fps (frames per second) and H.264 encoding, this card is perfect for capturing high-definition video for editing, compiling, and archiving. The capture card supports 16:9 and 4:3 aspect ratios and lets you record lossless video at 60fps. This ensures that every frame of content is saved, unlike 30fps capture devices that only capture half the action.
60fps exactly matches the output of most computer video cards, which makes this capture card great for recording the output from your PC, server, or point-of-sale station, when creating software training and tutorial videos.
H.264 encoding for wide device compatibility
The included software encodes captured video in H.264 -- the most widely adopted video compression standard in the world. This ensures your video captures are compatible with most device platforms such as PC, Mac, iOS and Android™.
The software not only lets you capture and export videos, but it also lets you take screenshots, schedule recordings and instantly stream your video source over the internet using online services such as Twitch, and others.
This HD capture card can record lossless raw video, which makes it compatible with Microsoft® DirectShow. This means you can record video using your preferred third-party DirectShow software, such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS).
Flexible input solutions for convenient compatibility
This adapter card features DVI-I signaling and multiple adapters to support many video input types. With multiple A/V input options, you can capture video from a wide variety of sources including HDMI, DVI, VGA, and component. You can also expand the capabilities of this capture card by using A/V adapters to record from other video sources such as SDI, using our SDI to HDMI converter (SDI2HD) (sold separately). Support for a variety of A/V devices and signals is ideal for archiving analog video footage into a digital database.
The capture device also includes easy-to-use software that’s compatible with NTSC and PAL systems - a must-have for professional video archiving applications where source media can change from project to project.
The PEXHDCAP60L2 is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.
This capture device will not record digitally encrypted content.
