The Elgato Game Capture HD enables gamers to record PlayStation or Xbox game play to a Mac or PC and share it with your friends and fans. This product is intended for those who like to record, edit and share console gameplay. It uses H.264 encoding to capture HD gameplay while keeping the file size low. It is placed in line between the system and the TV and uses a single cable, and then uses a USB port to connect to the Mac or PC. Included software facilitates recording, and allows time-shifting to retroactively record video. It then allows one-step uploading to social media. Included Elgato Game Capture HD software allows quick editing and then transfer to other video editing programs. It is also possible to stream live HD gameplay to YouTube or Twitch.
