Epiphan Video launches AV.io 4K – the simplest way to capture 4K video

June 8, 2016

PALO ALTO, CA – June 8, 2016 – Epiphan Video, a leader in professional audiovisual capture, recording, and streaming products, unveiled today the latest product in their AV.io line of video grabbers. AV.io 4K is a new portable capture card that lets audiovisual professionals capture video in 4K from HDMI video sources simply and quickly.

Simple, effective, ‘just works’ technology at the cutting edge of 4K.

Use AV.io 4K to capture 4K in perfect fidelity. It doesn’t need any special drivers installed on your computer – plug it in to your USB port and start using it right away. Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems automatically detect the video grabber, ensuring compatibility with your favorite software, including Skype, Wirecast and QuickTime.

AV.io 4K captures 4K video up to 4096×2160 with the ability to either pass the signal through to your computer or scale it down to meet the needs of your application. If you want a 4K output but your source is only at 1080p, AV.io 4K upscales it to output as a 4K output. In addition, like other products from Epiphan Video, AV.io 4K captures uncompressed Full HD video (1080p) at 60 frames per second. Regardless of the resolution, AV.io 4K is able to capture video with near-zero latency and ultra-high fidelity. Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, yet sturdy in its all-aluminum casing, AV.io 4K is the perfect companion for capturing from your digital video source.

“After releasing AV.io HD and AV.io SDI last year,” says David Kirk, VP of Product Management at Epiphan, “we saw incredible enthusiasm for this type of simple, effective, ‘just works’ technology. We wanted to provide that same experience at the cutting edge of 4K technology.”
