Twinfinite: Elgato Game Capture HD Review

Sharing video game footage is becoming a common occurrence nowadays. People really love sharing their awesome headshots on YouTube or streaming their lets plays on channels like Twitch.tv. With this growing interest in sharing gaming content, several companies have thrown their hat into the ring. Companies like Happauge and Roxio have come out with their own capture devices. Although Elgato is a company I haven’t really heard of before, I decided to take a look at their offerings. Retailing for $179.99, the Elgato Game Capture HD is priced in the same ballpark as some of the other big name capture cards that are popular with streamers and YouTubers alike.

I have a Hauppauge, Black Magic, as well as an Avermedia Live Gamer. You can get 1080p from the PS3 with the Live Gamer but you can't do so with 5.1 enabled. The article is vague on whether you actually get 1080p. Producing a youtube vid encoded at 1080p actually isn't verifying in plain honest English that the device captures and produces 1080p from every platform.

The guy obviously tested the device yet fails to mention anywhere in the article what resolutions were available for each platform, audio encoding, the raw file format produced for each and the bit rate which affects quality as well as file size. Nice info to have.
