HDMI Streaming. The Elgato Game Capture HD60 S will accept HDMI signals up to 1080/60p. It is a device from a brand that was popularized by video game streaming but works just as well for cameras outputting 1080p video.
HDMI Passthrough. The HD60S will pass through input signals to an HDMI Type-A output for monitoring the gameplay or camera you’ll be capturing on your computer, and fast H.264 encoding keeping latency at a minimum.
Instant Gameview. As a videogame forward company, El Gato provides tools for streaming and previewing inputs on computers in realtime. The Game Capture software for Windows & Mac allows for recording and streaming of captured video with voice over and integrated chat functionality. The device also works with the free OBS streaming app on Windows natively or on Apple OSX when used alongside Elgato’s OBS Link app.
