Live Gamer ULTRA

The next generation of game capture is here. The Live Gamer ULTRA (LGU) brings 4K capture to the table while its pass-through allows gamers to fully experience what 4K HDR is all about. Not limited to 4K HDR, this compact device can pass-through high refresh rates of up to 240 Hz on a Full HD signal.

DECRIPTION

4K High Dynamic Range Pass-through

Don’t give up 4K HDR content just to be able to record your gameplay. With 100% lag-free, 4Kp60 HDR video pass-through, the LGU allows you to enjoy mesmerizing 4K HDR gameplay and record at 4Kp30.

DECRIPTION

High Frame Rate Capture

With its high frame rate capture ability of up to 120 fps for Full HD signals, the LGU positions itself as the first external game capture device in the market to bring super smooth recordings to your archives.

DECRIPTION

Full HD High Dynamic Range

Unique, simply one of a kind. While supporting 4K HDR pass-through, the LGU records HDR content for Full HD playback at 60 frames per second.

DECRIPTION

Easiest Setup Ever

The LGU takes full advantage of UVC technology, which basically standardizes video drivers across Windows and Mac. In other words, all you need to do is plug your LGU to your PC or Mac and it’s ready to record and stream.T

DECRIPTION

Stay Cool

With a powerful, silent built-in fan, if you ever noticed, drawing cold air from the top and venting out hot air through the sides, your LGU will always stay cool in the heat of battles.

DECRIPTION

RECentral—Powerful Streaming Software

First in its class! RECentral is the first gaming capture software able to record HDR content. And it doesn’t stop there, RECentral is also able to simultaneously stream to multiple platforms.

DECRIPTION

Customizable resolution utility

If you decided not to connect a display to the HDMI output (pass-through) of your LGU we got you covered! With the “AVerMedia Gaming Utility” you can customize which resolutions and corresponding frame rates you are able to preview and record without the need to connect a passthrough monitor.

DECRIPTION

Capture, Record, Edit 4K

Are you thinking about editing your 4K videos but don’t know where to start? We’ve got you covered. The bundled CyberLink® PowerDirector™ 15 is a feature-packed, intuitive 4K video editor to kickstart your editing skills.
