Corsair's Elgato today announced the launch of HD60 S+, an external video capture card that lets content creators play high-fidelity console games in 4K60 HDR10 while simultaneously streaming or recording gameplay in 1080p60 HDR10.
The device is easy to set up a thanks to a USB 3.0 connection and full compatibility with most streaming applications including OBS Studio, Streamlabs OBS, and XSplit. The device is accompanied by the Elgato 4KCU recording software.
Building upon the original HD60 S, the HD60 S+ allows 4K60 HDR10 zero-lag passthrough, with onboard video downscaling to enable streaming to any platform in industry standard full HD 1080p60 quality and recording unlimited 1080p60 HDR10 footage to your hard drive. HD60 S+ also benefits from ultra-low latency Instant Gameview technology, keeping gameplay, mic, webcam, and other sources perfectly synched.
With the Elgato’s 4KCU software, you can take advantage of Flashback Recording to save your gameplay retroactively with DVR-like controls, and Live Commentary to record microphone audio as a separate track. These tools allow you to adjust gameplay, game audio, and microphone audio independently in post-production with ease. You can record the superior color depth of HDR10 that would be lost using other software, and leverage advanced file formats that let you arrange gameplay footage, gameplay audio, and microphone audio independently in your video editor.
Elgato HD60 S+ is available from the Elgato worldwide network of authorized retailers and distributors for $200. It is backed by a two-year warranty .
