You can now record and play on the same PC!
The Live Gamer HD supports a wide variety of graphic card resolutions up to 1080p@60fps. The video/audio pass-thru function allows you to record and play on the same PC. Don’t worry about the CPU loading of encoding a HD video because it’s taken care of by the Live Gamer HD. With the on-board H.264 encoder, you will no longer suffer from high CPU usage or frame drops.
The Live Gamer HD not only saves the system loading but also the hard disk space. Unlike the screen recording software, the on-board hardware encoder processes video files in H.264 format, which perfectly strike the balance between video quality and file size.
The installation is so easy
The Live Gamer HD records directly from your graphic card. After the driver and the card are properly installed, simply connect the graphic card to the Live Gamer HD and output to your display, you are done with the hardware installation. The display and audio will function normally once they are correctly connected.
Voice commentary is supported
You can now add voice commentary to the footages! As the Live Gamer HD records the audio from the gaming system, RECentral, the bundled software, allows you to record external audio source to a separate file. You can therefore add, edit or remove the commentary per your likings.
