Taipei, TAIWAN – August 18, 2020 – AVerMedia Technologies, Inc., a leader in digital video and audio, today announced it has launched the Live Gamer DUO, the latest addition to AVerMedia’s video capture card lineup. The Live Gamer DUO, shortened as DUO, is the world’s first internal video capture card with dual HDMI inputs that supports 4K60 HDR10 and Full HD at 240 frames per second (FPS) and up to Full HD 60 FPS respectively.
With the DUO’s primary input and powerful onboard video processing capabilities content creators will be able to enjoy 4K60 HDR10 or Full HD 240 FPS gameplay on the passthrough side, while capturing at Full HD 60 FPS or Full HD 60 FPS HDR10.Downscaling, frame rate conversion, and tone mapping is done on the card itself, allowing the creator’s streaming rig to focus on more important tasks.
The DUO’s secondary HDMI is a dedicated face camera-input without passthrough that supports a Full HD signal at a buttery 60 Frames per second. Ready to connect any mirrorless camera, DSLR, or camcorder with clean HDMI output and help capture every single reaction and creator’s emotion while they stream.
Developed specifically with live creators in mind and designed to help all creators level up, the DUO utilizes two HDMI inputs—one for the creator’s face camera, one for the gameplay— providing two independent and uncompressed Full HD 60 FPS video feeds, ready for live streaming. Raising the bar once more by furthering what creators can do to future proof their content, the Live Gamer DUO is undeniably the perfect balance between power and functionality.
