Los Angeles – Hauppauge Digital introduced at the 2013 E3 a new all-in-one video recording capability that gives users of its popular gaming video recorder, the HD PVR 2, a new recording, streaming and editing application.
The Hauppauge Capture is a powerful video capture application which allows console and PC gamers to both record and live stream their game play along with commentary.
Hauppauge Capture is a free download for the HD PVR 2 and provides:
• Built-in audio mixer to adjust the audio volume from game play and microphone audio
• One touch recording of live game play
• Live stream game play with chat via Twitch or Ustream using the built-in Hauppauge hardware boosted SteamEez application
• Quick editing with the “cuts only” video editor
• Personal logo inserter
• YouTube upload
Hauppauge Capture also provides a built-in audio mixer to combine game chat with game audio.
The audio mixer is for both recording and streaming game play, and uses a microphone plugged into the recording PCs mic input.
Hauppauge Capture's mixer has independent volume control of game and chat audio, and supports the HD PVR 2’s built-in record button, which is mounted in the top cover of all HD PVR 2 models. Users can instantly start and stop recordings directly from their HD PVR 2.
Hauppauges’ SteamEez application, built into Hauppauge Capture, uses the HD PVR 2 hardware video encoder to stream live game play via Twitch or Ustream.
Gamers can create high quality, low bit rate streaming game events for Twitch or Ustream followers. The built-in hardware video encoding means live streaming over the Internet will require minimal system resources.
The HD PVR 2 device is a small video recorder which records Xbox, PS3, WiiU or PC gaming play in full 1080p HD using a studio quality video encoder chip. The new Hauppauge Capture application uses the HD PVR 2 device to provide high quality video recording and streaming for game play. Hauppauge Capture includes a simple to use quality slide control allows users to choose their recording and streaming quality level. Hauppauge Capture runs on a Windows laptop or desktop PC using Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8.
Hauppauge Capture will help users to maximize their game recording experience, benefiting from “one-click” functionality for capture, edit, YouTube, SteamEez, and settings all in one application.
A personal logo inserter also allows users to “burn” a personalized logo into their recordings.
