Game streaming and recording made easy with AVerMedia's new Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus
E-sports and game streaming are very popular these days thanks to specialized sites like Twitch and Youtube Gaming. Gamers with high-end setups might not encounter streaming problems, but, for the less fortunate who use older PCs and still want to have a smooth experience, there are capture cards that can unload the processor and the GPU and take over the streaming/recording tasks altogether. AVerMedia is one of the prominent brands that offers this type of dedicated hardware, and its latest Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 external capture hub is here to provide the ultimate streaming experience.
The compact streaming hub only weighs 0.4 lb and comes with three modes:
• PC Mode lets users connect the hub to their gaming devices and stream immediately
• PC-Free Mode records streams or gaming sessions directly to a microSD card
• Storage Mode enables the hub to work as a card reader, so users can transfer what they recorded to their preferred storage devices
The new Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 integrates a UHD pass through that ensures all 4K games run at 60 fps and have minimal lag during streams, while providing [email protected] recording capabilities at the same time. It comes with a USB 2.0 (UVC) interface, and supports HDMI 2.0 on both input and pass through connections. The hub also integrates an HDMI audio input, as well as two 3.5 mm jacks for headphones.
Those interested in buying the Live Gamer Portable Plus 2 can already find it at e-tailers like Newegg for $US218.70.
