This week, Magewell announced a new capture card, the Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus LT, which allows gamers to capture 4K visuals at 60 frames per second a whole lot easier.

According to the press release, the Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus LT is an updated model of its previously-released Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus. Several new features introduced include a loop-through HDMI connection allowing source signals from the device to be sent concurrently to additional displays or equipment without an external HDMI splitter needed.

The can record footage up to 4096×2160 resolution at 60 frames per second over an HDMI 2.0 input interface, which permits high-quality Ultra HD acquisition that can be used for markets and applications including but not limited to medical imaging, gaming, and virtual reality production. Additionally, the Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus LT is a PCIe x4 card, meaning that both audio and video can be sent to multiple software applications simultaneously with independent control of the resolution, frame rate, and video processing settings.

Currently, the Pro Capture HDMI 4K Plus LT is available for $899.99 and is compatible on Linux, Mac, and Windows computers. That being said, it is going to be hard to sell this device to the consumers, especially when you consider that Elgato’s 4K 60 Pro capture card is $500 less, aims more towards the gaming crowd, and already includes video pass-through.
