AVerMedia delivers the world’s first 4K and 240Hz video capture solution

Game streaming is a difficult task, especially when high resolutions and new technologies like HDR are considered. While basic solutions can provide more than enough visual clarity to the masses, high-end users will still want to see videos with the highest levels of image quality, full HDR support and higher framerates than run of the mill streams. 

AVerMedia is one of the leaders of the game streaming hardware scene, with the Live Gamer series offering PC users the opportunity to stream their games and other projects to the masses with relative ease. Now, AVerMedia wants to push their technology into the 4K era, creating the world’s first external 4K 60FPS and 1080p 240FPS video capture solution on the market. Meet the Live Gamer Bolt

Hold on, external 4K video capture? How? Yes, such high-resolution content is beyond the capabilities of normal USB ports. With their Live Gamer Bolt, AVerMedia is offering consumers a video capture solution which can support Thunderbolt 3.0, utilising the bandwidth offered by the standard to deliver 4K 60FPS HDR streams and support for 1080p streams at 240Hz and 1440p streams at 144Hz. Not bad for an external setup. 

The benefits of an external setup are obvious. It’s portable. You can bring it with you to events to quickly capture high-resolution video. Need to capture 4K footage at E3 or Gamescom from a high-resolution PC, PS4 Pro or Xbox One X? This is where the AVerMedia Live Gamer Bolt steps in. Connect it to your Thunderbolt compliant notebook, and you are ready to capture footage or live stream video as needed. 

On the rear of the unit sits a single HDMI 2.0 connection, a USB 3.1 port and a Thunderbolt 3 connection. At this time the release date of the Live Gamer Bolt is unknown, though its price tag is estimated to be $499 (via Tom’s Guide).
