Gets you streaming in a snap.
Leading capture card/streaming solution, Elgato, announced a new product, the external (USB) Game Capture HD60, which boasts a serious feature list, but chiefly will be known for its ability to simultaneous streaming live and capture 1080p gamplay at 60 fps. The unit has a new form factor that comes to just .75 inches thick, which should make it easy to set-up as an HDMI pass-through. It also uses Elgato Game Capture 2.0 software, which should make overlays and additional webcam streaming a snap.
From Adam Steinberg, Vice President, Marketing for Elgato, "In 2012, we massively improved the process of gameplay capture and streaming for millions of content creators and viewers alike with our award-winning Game Capture HD. With the long-awaited launches of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 as well as the now near ubiquitous penetration of high definition playback devices, we felt there was no better time to introduce the next generation of capture technology -- the Elgato Game Capture HD60. The Game Capture HD60 features a new slimmer and sleeker design as well as a host of additional functionality, including 1080p60 capture for true high-definition recording and playback as well as our unique Stream Command interface allowing for greater creativity and customization of streams."
Representing the next generation of gameplay sharing, Elgato Game Capture HD60 combines these features:
1080p60 support. Elgato Game Capture HD60 uses superior H.264 hardware encoding to create incredibly smooth footage in easily manageable files that you can access directly on your PC or Mac.
Flashback Recording. With Elgato Game Capture HD60 you don't have to worry about pressing the record button - simply slide back in time on your PC or Mac and hit the record button retroactively.
Built-in Live Streaming with Stream Command. Elgato Game Capture HD60 gets you up and running on Twitch, YouTube, Ustream or Dailymotion in a snap. The brand-new Stream Command makes it easy to add your webcam and overlays. Add your voice with the built-in Live Commentary feature.
Simultaneous live streaming and high quality capture. With Elgato Game Capture HD60 you don't have to choose between streaming and recording. No matter what resolution you broadcast, you can simultaneously capture full resolution 1080p.
Elgato Game Capture HD60 is available now for pre-order from BestBuy at an MSRP of $179.99 USD. It is set an August 15th release.
