USB HDMI capture card, unboxing and review

Unlike most of my videos(including this one) that are recorded and then taken from internal media on my Zcam E1 my news posts are captured live using obs. In order to accomplish this I had been using my Flint 4kp which although a great capture device seemed like a bit overkill (plus I wanted to keep it in my desk with my 4k monitor) To that end I snagged a small USB capture card on amazon and have been using it for the past few weeks in the news post both with the camera shown here(one of my b-roll 1080i Panasonic HC-V160 cameras) as well as the Zcam itself(when I take time to re-rig the studio)

Overall I’m rather impressed with the results I got out of this card and although there are some shortcomings(they don’t like playing with each other if you have more than one) it does a fantastic job bringing in both video and audio over HDMI, check out one of our news roundups to see it in action!
