AVerMedia released full details on the Live Gamer Portable. Let’s take take a look.
Roughly one month ago we wrote about the teaser video AVerMedia released for it’s upcoming Live Gamer Portable. Now that the details are available this is what we’ve learned.
The Live Gamer Portable is not a production switcher. That was obviously a long shot, and it missed accordingly. The Live Gamer Portable is however still looking like its up there with the best external capture cards with hardware encoding.
To record without a PC the device uses high speed (class 10 and up) SD cards. This seems to me like a smart choice over regular hard drives and flash memory, but it very much depends on the file size of the recordings.
Another nice feature for VOD producers is that the game audio and 3.5mm input audio are saved in separate files, allowing you to edit the 2 audio feeds independent of each other. Finally, the new ‘TimeShift’ looks like the ability to scrub the RECentral player timeline. If correct there’s not much to say about that.
The card’s release date is not yet available.
