Building on the acclaimed HD60 S+, HD60 X features all-new architecture with rear ports to keep cables out of sight. The palm-sized, plug-and-play device connects to a console and sends video to both a gaming display and PC. You can then play high-fidelity games while livestreaming to Twitch or YouTube in Full HD 1080p60 quality, while simultaneously recording 1080p60 HDR10 footage to your hard drive. Instant Gameview technology syncs your broadcast with your gameplay, allowing you to monitor your capture feed with ultra-low latency.

Our game capture solutions span three console generations and have powered hundreds of millions of uploads and livestreams. Today, we’re thrilled to launch yet another definitive capture solution for the latest generation of game consoles.”
