Record TV shows, gameplay, and other video sources in full-HD resolution H.264 video directly to your PC with the Hauppauge Colossus 2 PCIe Video Capture Card. The Colossus 2 plugs directly into an available PCI Express slot and features a real-time hardware H.264 encoder which compresses the input video before recording it for high-quality yet compact video files. Aside from recording, the Colossus 2 can stream video using the included StreamEez software. StreamEez allows you to stream your video to popular platforms such as Twitch, YouTube, and UStream.
Using the available input selection, recording can be done from a variety of sources. The HDMI inputs provide the highest quality video from unprotected sources such as camcorders and some game systems. If you wish to record a protected source, such as a set-top box or other game systems, recording can be done through the component video input which also supports HD resolutions. When using the analog connection, higher quality digital audio can be recorded from the optical output found on many set-top boxes. Using the included WinTV software and IR blaster, the Colossus 2 can control your set-top box so you can schedule recordings for your favorite shows to watch later.
