Elgato Takes Its Game-Capture Act Live

Elgato, maker of the Game Capture HD ($179.95), recently announced that its device became the first to support YouTube’s new Live Streaming API. As such, gamers who possess a streamingenabled YouTube account can broadcast gameplay from any game from straight within the Game Capture HD’s included software, the company states. Further, with one click gamers can launch the live broadcast complete with audio commentary using their headset’s microphone while simultaneously capturing the stream. 

The Game Capture HD also makes it possible to edit gameplay footage and share recorded action via numerous social networks. Overall, the Game Capture HD records Xbox 360- or PlayStation 3-based action in 1080p using H.264 hardware encoding. The device connects directly to a console and provides output to a TV via HDMI pass-through. Among the Game Capture HD’s cooler features is Flashback Recording, a time-shifting tool that lets you go back to a scene’s beginning and record retroactively.
