The capture card war between AVerMedia and Elgato has just been kicked up a notch today, as the latter has just has unveiled it’s latest capture device – the Elgato 4K60 S+. Yes, that’s a mouthful to utter and has debuted today during CES 2020.
This new device can capture up to 4K60 frames per second, but also HDR 10 and onboard HEVC encoding. It does require a USB 3.0 connection if you want to use it with a PC. Or, you can skip using the PC completely as the 4K60 S+ can also record without the need of one. Just pop in an SD Card, connect the device up to a video signal and press the record button. A feat that AVerMedia’s external capture devices were known for accomplishing.
Introducing 4K60 S+
For the first time ever:
✅ 4K60 HDR over USB 3.0 ✅ 4K60 HDR recorded straight to SD card, PC-Free
I also just happen to be in the market for such a device so I’ll be looking to scoop one up. However, it’s not cheap as the Elgato 4K60 S+ will set you back by $399.99 and is currently available at Amazon.com.
Though, I wouldn’t dismiss AVerMedia just yet, as they’ve been hinting at a similar device for a while and it will supposedly debut during CES 2020 as well.
