  • Magewell USB Capture AIO

    Magewell’s single-channel USB Capture AIO captures SDI and HDMI both with embedded and analog audio, and extends its functionality to DVI, VGA, Component, Composite and S-video, all plus audio.


    Magewell’s design philosophy includes a sleek and clean white finish, housing the leading benchmark for portable video capture devices.

    Features of the USB Capture AIO include:Support for capture resolutions up to 2K (2048x2160) at capture frame rates up to 120 frames per second, allowing for pristine definition, fluidity and with the ability to up/down scale video resolution at will, flexibility.

    Supports a deinterlacing algorithm, converting common analog television signals or 1080i HD sources into non-interlaced form for a smooth, full-sized image. With adjustable brightness, hue and saturation, and various capture colour spaces – clarity is completely within the user’s customization.

    Aside from being a multipurpose ‘all-in-one’ device, the USB Capture AIO stands out with its mobility – its plug and play feature allows the user to transport it anywhere at any time with ease; or if you’re looking for something dedicated, this product will continuously function 24/7.

    Compatible with Windows, Linux and Mac OS X, and supporting a driverless interface, the flexibility of this device provides a cost-effective, easy to use, and feature rich solution for the users’ needs in the evolving landscape.

    Capture Format Setting

    Set the capture resolution, frame rate and color space. If the capture format is different with the input format, the FPGA in the capture device will automatically do up/down scaling, causing 0 CPU usage. This function is especially useful when scaling by software causes much CPU burden. 

    Audio Volume Control

    The Utility V3 can control the volume of the audio input (recording) and output (playback) of the USB capture (Plus) devices. The functions differ with models. If the system volume is changed, the parameter on the Utility V3 will also change accordingly. Users can click on the icon to quickly mute/unmute a playback/recording device.

    Utility V3 also provide functions such as cropping, deinterlacing, device name setting, aspect ratio conversion, timing adjustment, status image setting, etc.
