Magewell USB Capture SDI - Gen 2

  • Vendor: Magewell
  • Product Type: Capture & Playback

Videoconference with Skype or Stream Live to Facebook Live with Wirecast or Livestream Studio on your laptop with this simple device.

Supporting resolutions up to 1080p, the Magewell USB Capture SDI Dongle can send full HD video to your computer for recording or streaming. It has a micro-coaxial input which can be converted to a standard BNC port with a separately available adapter. Through this port the USB Capture SDI will accept SD, HD, and 3G-SDI signals. If you need to stream or record at a certain resolution, regardless of the input, the USB Capture SDI will internally up or down-covert the input signal to the set resolution. It can also perform frame-rate conversion and de-interlacing in real-time with its own hardware, taking the processing load off of your computer's CPU.

Get the most of your Magewell device with these software driver utilities from Magewell.

Because the Magewell USB Capture SDI uses the existing drivers on your computer, the capture device will work with any software that supports those drivers. If you don't have a USB 3.0 port available, the USB Capture SDI will work with a USB 2.0 port, although the resolution and frame rate capabilities will be reduced due to the restricted bandwidth.

  • No drivers needed for Windows, Mac, or Linux
  • Automatically determines input video format and converts it to the specified output size and frame rate
  • Automatically converts input audio formats to 48KHz PCM stereo audio
  • 64MB of DDR2 onboard memory to control frame buffer and avoid interruption or dropped frames when USB bandwidth is occupied
