AVerMedia Launches Live Gamer 4K and Live Gamer ULTRA, First Consumer Capture Cards to Enable 4K HDR Game Streaming

2018-06-25  Taipei, Taiwan

Join the 4K Gaming Revolution – Record and Stream Game Footage with Spectacular Clarity and High Frame Rates Without Impacting Gameplay, Including 4K HDR with the Live Gamer 4K

 

AVerMedia Technologies, Inc., a leader in digital video and audio, today launched the Live Gamer 4K and Live Gamer ULTRA 4K UHD game capture cards, unleashing the power of 4K HDR game capture and streaming for today’s PC and console gaming. The top of the line Live Gamer 4K  is an internal PCIe card capable of capturing 4K HDR at 60 frames per second, the first consumer card capable of capturing 4K HDR footage. The high performance, laptop-friendly Live Gamer ULTRA is a driverless external card capable of capturing up to 4Kp30 with full 4K HDR passthrough and onboard video processing.

 

 

4K and 4K HDR video is a rising trend in gaming, both on PC and 4K-capable consoles such as the Xbox One X and PlayStation 4 Pro. Thanks to 4K and 4K HDR graphics, players can see details that bring action to life, making gaming more immersive. With both new AVerMedia cards, games and influencers can capture at full 4K resolution, including HDR, or choose to play in Full HD with insanely high frame rates (up to 240 frames per second).

 

The internal PCIe Live Gamer 4K is perfect for gamers with a powerful desktop PC for gaming or standalone capture from a 4K High Dynamic Range (HDR) PC or console, providing the ability to capture at the very highest resolutions and frame rates. HDR, previously only available via expensive professional capture cards, provides more accurate color and great contrast ratio along with the increased resolution provided by 4K (3840 x 2160) at up to 60 frames per second.

 

The external Live Gamer ULTRA, on the other hand, provides a solution for laptop users and streamers on the go, allowing ultra low latency capture over USB 3.1 with a small footprint. Its driverless setup ensures the card is immediately recognized when it’s plugged in, and while it can’t capture in 4K at 60 fps like its big brother, it can still capture at 4Kp30 and at 120 fps in 1080 HD when paired with a laptop or PC that can handle the throughput. It also supports HDR passthrough, allowing gamers to play and view HDR while recording in standard 4K, and its onboard video processing helps lighten the computer’s CPU load.

 

The Live Gamer 4K and Live Gamer ULTRA cards are now available at retail and online, and include AVerMedia’s proprietary RECentral software that supports simultaneous streaming to Twitch, YouTube and Mixer from a single app, and CyberLink’s PowerDirector 15 video editing software, which supports 4K video.
