AVerMedia Live Gamer HD 2 (LGHD2) GC570 Review

The AVerMedia Live Gamer HD 2 is a video capture card which allows for the recording of any HDMI video input without HDCP. This would mean you will be able to hook it up not only your computer but also your PS4/XBox or even your camera! It supports FHD (1080p60) and it can record videos at a frame rate of up to 60FPS.

Design
The Live Gamer HD 2 sports a geometric mesh around it to help add a certain futuristic feel, when coupled with its LED lighting. Not only is it pleasing to the eye, it also provides excellent ventilation during heavy usage.

Input/Output
Moving on to the I/O of the card, it offers two HDMI ports and two audio ports. For both the HDMI and audio ports, one is used for output (pass-through) while the other is for input. As a HDMI cable and a 3.5 male to male audio cable is provided, you will be able to use your existing setup without needing to buy any additional cable.

Installation and Setting Up
All that is needed is a single PCI Express x1 Gen 2 slot, and it is ready to be used. There is even no need to install any drivers. Simply download the AVerMedia's RECentral 3 application to unleash the full potential of the capture card.

Usage
Using RECentral 3 is relatively easy, click on the big red record button and done! It also allows for the streaming to various streaming platforms such as Twitch, YouTube and even Facebook. Additionally, it supports the ability to overlay your webcam onto the stream, Picture-in-Picture (another video over your current footage) as well as being able to edit your recordings live!
If you want finer controls to your stream, RECentral 3's got you covered. You will be able to select the various advanced settings such as the recording bit rate as well as even the keyframe interval. Props should be given to AVerMedia as their software is well made for their target audience. Not to mention, the Live Gamer HD 2 records with an ultra low latency, making any input latency virtually unnoticeable!
