Overview

This all-in-one PCI Express capture card lets you record 1080p HD video and stereo audio to your computer system. With multiple video inputs including HDMI, DVI, VGA and component, the capture card can record original content from various sources such as computers, camcorders, security systems, POS terminals, and servers. With a framerate of 60 FPS (frames per second) and H.264 encoding, this is the perfect solution for capturing high-definition video for editing, compiling, and archiving.

The card can be installed into any low-profile or full-profile PCIe slot, making it the ideal solution for fixed workstations such as 2U or 4U rack-mounted servers or media centers. Installing your capture device internally via PCIe ensures a secure and reliable solution for video capture.

Seamless picture quality at 60 frames per second

This capture card lets you record lossless video at 60 FPS ensuring every frame of content is saved, unlike 30-frame-per-second capture devices that only catch half the action. 60 FPS exactly matches the output of most computer video cards, which is great for recording the output from your PC, server, or POS station when creating software training and tutorial videos.

H.264 encoding for wide device compatibility 

The included software encodes in H.264, the most widely adopted video codec in the world, ensuring your video captures will be compatible with almost any device platform such as PC, Mac®, iOS® and Android™ with no editing or converting required. H.264 is also widely supported by most software titles including Adobe Premiere® and Windows Media® Encoder. Plus, 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.

This card is capable of capturing lossless raw video making it compatible with Microsoft® DirectShow. With raw video capture you can record video using your preferred third party DirectShow software such as Open Broadcaster Software (OBS). 

Flexible input solutions for convenient compatibility

With multiple A/V input options you can capture from a wide variety of sources including HDMI, DVI, VGA, and component. You can also use this capture card with A/V adapters to record other video sources such as SDI using our SDI to HDMI converter (SDI2HD). Support for a variety of A/V devices is ideal for archiving analog video footage into a digital database.

The device also includes easy-to-use software that’s compatible with NTSC and PAL systems, making it a must for professional video archiving applications where source media can change from project to project.

The PEXHDCAP60L is backed by a StarTech.com 2-year warranty and free lifetime technical support.

Frequently Asked Questions

Before You Buy

You can use a video capture device to capture or record an audio and video output signal to a connected computer.  You can use USB, ExpressCard, or PCI Express technology to connect a video capture device to a computer system.  StarTech.com has video capture devices that can capture audio and video from sources such as HDMI, DVI, VGA, S-Video, component, or composite.  The captured signals are usually recorded with software that is included with the video capture device.  Some software will also stream the captured signals online.

Select a capture device that features the audio and video connections you want to use.  These can be identified on the product page, under the Technical Specifications tab.  Whenever possible, you should avoid using adapters or converters with video capture devices as they can cause issues or negatively impact the quality of the audio or video signals being captured.

When looking at a video capture device that requires software to use, it is important to consider the operating system you want to use it on.  You can find this on the product page under the Technical Specifications tab, which only lists supported operating systems.

Consider what resolution and refresh rate you require.  You can find the supported resolutions and refresh rates on the product page, under the Technical Specifications tab in the Performance section. 

Video capture device usually use drivers and software to record audio and video.  Both the drivers and the software can be found on the product page under the Support tab.  Different software will have different features so it’s a good idea to review the software to make sure it is a good fit for your intended usage.  You can do so by looking at the manual for the device, also located on the Support tab.  StarTech.com only supports the software included with the video capture device. 

HDCP stands for High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection.  This system protects high definition video from being intercepted, modified, or recorded between the source and the display.  All StarTech.com devices adhere to the HDCP standard, so they do not record HDCP-protected content.  HDCP content that is being blocked often appears as a blank screen or a screen with an HDCP error shown on it.

Certain video capture devices allow you to stream video feeds online with streaming platform such as YouTube.  For more information, review the product manual or watch our video on this subject.  You can find a link to the video in the description.  If at this point you have further questions about a Startech.com video capture device contact our technical support team for further assistance. 

Although you may be able to plug in all of the connectors used for video standards associated with video capture cards/cables, you may still encounter issues that may prevent the video from being captured correctly.

About copyright protection

Some video sources implement copyright protection when you are plugging into a non-display device. Examples of copyright protection include the following:

  • High Definition Content Protection (HDCP). This type of copyright protection is included with DVI and HDMI® and can appear as a video error or blank screen. HDCP may also appear on the screen.

  • Analogue Content Protection (ACP). This type of copyright protection is included with analogue video (for example, composite, s-video, or component). ACP can appear as a brightness pulsing up and down.

Copyright protection cannot legally be bypassed, and StarTech.com does not offer any products that do so.

Using video adapters

It is possible to passively convert video signals to different connector types, but the video standards will not always match between the video source and video destination. You may need to actively convert from one video type to another to ensure that the correct conversion is being made. When a passive converter is not available, most video standards can be converted with active converters.

Examples of incompatible passive conversions include the following:

  • VGA source to composite or component (RCA) video, or composite or component (RCA) video to VGA.
  • Composite (RCA) source to s-video.
  • VGA to DVI-D and DVI-D to VGA.

Note: S-video to composite can be passively converted. DVI-I/DVI-A and VGA can be used bidirectionally.

About output resolution

If your video source has the ability to change resolutions (for example, a computer), it may be possible to send an incompatible resolution. To verify that the correct resolution is being used, navigate to www.StarTech.com and click the Technical Specifications tab for your product. Make note of the Industry Standards and Maximum Resolution specifications.

In the operating system's display management, you can adjust your video source to match or go below the maximum resolution and if possible, the refresh rate of your capture card.

Due to High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP), it is not possible to record from certain gaming consoles. HDCP content (for example, movies) are protected, but the console itself may or may not have permanent HDCP enabled on the HDMI output.

For more information about consoles and their permanent HDCP enforcement, consult the following table:

Console Permanent HDCP

PlayStation 3

Yes
PlayStation 4

Optional. You can change the settings in the menu.

Wii U

No

XBox 360

No
XBox One No

You can use a video capture card with consoles that do not have permanent HDCP enabled.
