The INOGENI 4K HDMI to USB 3.0 Converter is the most easy and reliable tool to capture uncompressed video with audio from your camera's HDMI output for your PC for recording, editing, videoconferencing and streaming applications. No driver installation is necessary and will work on all motherboards and USB 3.0 chipsets. It features a single HDMI input / USB 3.0 output, supports SD and HDTV video formats up to Ultra HD 4K (4096x2160) and most computer graphic formats.
Compact in size and powered directly from a USB 3.0 port, the converter is a practical and easy-to-use USB 3.0 capture solution. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX, Linux and Android operating systems, and is UVC-compliant, so it will work with all DirectShow compatible software.
The converter supports Ultra HD resolutions up to 30 fps and 1080p resolutions up to 60 fps.
All SD and HD resolution signals are converted to 4:2:2 8-bit or 4:2:0 12-bit colour spaces over USB 3.0, while all UHD resolution signals are converted to 4:2:0. The embedded audio in your HDMI signals are extracted and output as two-channel LPCM. A USB 3.0 cable is included.
March 2020 and as lockdown started it was all about getting better and better web cams. We saw how awful the Zoom interviews on the news looked, all blocky backlit shadows and up-nose shots. A simple LED panel light would make a huge difference, and these flew out of the warehouse. The LEDGO LG-E268C has been on my desk ever since, on a tiny light stand which cost me £5.
With the current situation there has never been so much requirement for video conferencing using Skype, Zoom, Microsoft Teams or even Facetime. In the last couple of days, I’ve been asked by a couple of cameraman I know how they can use their fantastic kit for this purpose, as they are stuck at home for the next couple of months with thousands of pounds worth of cameras gathering dust. All these communication platforms running on PC or Mac can take an input from any webcam, but as good as modern webcams are, with their tiny sensors and limited microphones they can never compete with even the most basic professional camera systems.
