Video grabber extraordinaire: 4K

When we created our 4K capture card, we knew we were filling a niche with a device that that a lot of people were looking for: a portable and easy way to capture 4K video. We managed to hit the nail on the head, and it’s great to see the response from reviewers and publications. So today we’re going to take some time to (admittedly) pat ourselves on the back a bit, but also discuss why the 4K HDMI to USB adapter fits well into the current state of streaming.

InfoComm 2016 – Best New AV Accessory

rAVe Publications gives out awards every year for the best technologies presented at InfoComm, one of the biggest AV conferences in North America. They chose 4K as the Best New AV Accessory, recognizing its amazing capabilities to capture 4K and “it just works” technology.

Part of the reason this video grabber stands out so much is that it packs a lot of versatility into a very small container. Used with your favorite 4K-capable encoding software, such as OBS, 4K can stream, record and capture video at resolutions up to 4K DCI from any HDMITM video source, while automatically downscaling/upscaling your video.

Thanks to rAVe for recognizing 4K as the best new addition to the AV accessory space!

It’s also great to see 4K’s popularity being reflected in all the third-party content we’ve been seeing, such as…

Tech of Tomorrow

A futuristic channel name for a futuristic product. Tech of Tomorrow showed how great 4K works for capturing video game content, especially once he compared the video grabber’s performance to a software-only solution. Where the software-only solution, jumped, lagged, and stuttered through the capture process, 4K captured a huge resolution smoothly and without interruption.
