The SY-XTREAM HDMI to USB video capture recorder
with HDMI bypass can support resolutions up to 18Gbps (600MHz) 4K UHD with HDR
(via the bypass path) while simultaneously streaming the audio and video signal
at 1080p to a USB connected PC for capture or re-broadcast. HDMI sources up to
1080p 60hz are supported for capture without scaling, while 4K sources will
be automatically scaled down to 1080p. The use of a special video timing
stabilization feature helps to ensure that the USB capture stream won’t lock up
or drop, even if the HDMI input source is intermittent or becomes disconnected.
Digital stereo audio from either HDMI (LPCM 2.0) or the 3.5mm analogue audio
input will be captured with the HDMI video source and is selectable within the
USB capture is achieved using the UAC
(USB Audio Class) and UVC (USB Video Class) standards, allowing the unit to
support most common video capture, chat, or streaming software, including
support for the Free OBS (Open Broadcaster Software) streaming software which
is available for Windows PC, macOS and Linux.
The unit is powered directly by
the USB 3.0 port so an external power supply is not required (A Y-cable is
required when connected via USB 2.0 in order to deliver the necessary power).
Availability and access to the controllable features of the unit depend on the
capture software used.
