Epiphan AV.io 4K USB 3.0 Video Grabber
Transfer up to a 4K HDMI video signal to your computer with Epiphan's robust and compact AV.io 4K Video Grabber.
This sleek capture device features an HDMI input and USB 3.0 output. It supports up to 4096 x 2160 (DCI 4K) resolution on input and allows you to retain the resolution on output or scale it up or down. Connect cameras, mobile devices, home entertainment devices, and other HDMI sources, and transmit the content to your computer with audio, uncompressed, and with near-zero latency.
The AV.io 4K is a UVC device that shows up on your computer as a webcam. As a UVC device it's designed to integrate with a capture software on your computer, and it's seamlessly compatible with all the popular capture software, including Wirecast, Skype, QuickTime, Adobe FMLE, VLC media player, Windows Camera, and any conferencing software. The captured data can be used for a variety of purposes, like high-end streaming, webcam applications requiring higher image quality than standard webcams offer, and for recording, such as if a doctor needs to capture an ultrasound.
The AV.io 4K is auto-detected on Windows, Mac, and Linux systems, allowing for for easy integration. Its USB 3.0 output is backwards-compatible with USB 2.0 but a USB 2.0 port will limit the maximum frame rate and resolution support.
The AV.io 4K has a tough build and can be relied on for long-term use. It has a metal exterior that's strong enough to withstand being dropped as well as stepped on. Included along with the grabber are a 3 ft HDMI cable and 3 ft USB 3.0 cable, so you'll be able to get started right away.
Note: High-Bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) is a form of digital copy protection intended to prevent illegal copying of video and audio content. The AV.io 4K cannot capture from video sources protected by HDCP.

*For capturing 4K resolutions, Epiphan recommends using a computer with an Intel USB host controller (which is the most common type) to achieve the best results. With other USB host controllers, such as from ASM, AMD, VIA, Renesas, Eltron, Fresco, and TI, capture will be at 79 - 96% of the expected frame rate.
