The BG-CHA is an HDMI video capture device. When you need to record or stream any HDMI source (like video camera, gaming console or other computer) on your PC – this device will do the job.

It supports any resolutions up to 1080P at 60fps on USB 3.0/3.1 ports. Built-in scaler gives you more flexibility for the capturing video format. Large volume image buffer ensures smooth uninterrupted video capture.

Using 3.5mm stereo audio input you can switch to the external mic or other audio signal and embed it into the video stream. All aluminum housing and power from USB port (no additional power adapter required) adds durability and portability to our setup.

BG-CHA is HDCP compliant and will not allow to record protected content.

 This product meets the standards of the Trade Agreement Act (TAA).
