AverMedia seems to have upped the capturing game today with their launch of their Live Gamer DUO for PC.
The Live Gamer DUO features two HDMI inputs that enable users to passthrough and play in 4K HDR while recording video from two separate feeds in uncompressed full HD. Users can also pass-through high refresh rates of up to 240 Hz in full HD.
The device is retailing for $249.99 via the AverMedia website, with Amazon to host the product soon. Further, the company released a trailer that shows the device in action. Streamers are able to connect the video devices, DSLR or HDMI video camera, as well as their gaming device, and simultaneously stream and record both streams. This may condense a few streamers setups which typically requires them to use two different capturing software for their gaming and video feeds.
The pass 4k HDR passthrough will ensure that this device works for next-generation hardware as well, which is a must, considering some users will need to upgrade their capture hardware to be compatible with the more powerful video outputs.
