We needed to convert our Pearl Mini HDMI out to SDI in order to send the signal to an attached facility, but the HDMI out was being using by Zoom through a HDMI/USB encoder. The AJA U-Tab USB 3.1 allows us to take a SDI feed from our main HDMI/SDI splitter and use the USB output to Zoom. We attempted this with other products and they all failed. This one works and delivers great audio and video quality. The caveat is it has a SDI pass thru as well.

Presumably this works as a gaming capture device from consoles or other machines with HDMI out (via, for example, OBS Studio)?
Asked by: Ed
Yes it should. Due to the popularity of streaming games, the consoles do not have HDCP protection. This should capture the footage from gaming consoles just fine. The same for a computer with an HDMI output.

Can you run 2 of these connected to the same computer? What resolutions and frame rates and does audio come over?
Asked by: Stephen
You would need an especially capable computer, but each input to the AJA U-TAP USB 3.0 (3.2 Gen 1) Powered HDMI Capture Device (B&H# AJUTAPHDMI) will appear as a separately available video camera. The available resolutions and frame rates are those stated in the SPECS section of the product page: 480i / 525 lines at 29.97/59.94 fps 576i / 625 lines 25/50 fps 720p 50/59.94/60 fps 1080i 50/59.94/60 fps 1080p 23.98/24/25/29.97/30/50/59.94/60 fps Input Audio Format S/PDIF: 48 kHz / 16-Bit

Will this work with the blackmagic atem mini pro switcher to capture video?
Asked by: Ryan
The Mini Pro can capture to USB connected drives like the following model. https://bhpho.to/3G8cSg3 However if you wanted to connect the AJA UTAP to a computer it would allow you to stream or record video and audio sent from the HDMI output of the Atem Mini Pro. If you have a Thunderbolt 3 computer another recording idea would be the Black Magic 3G Recorder https://bhpho.to/331tbNz it comes with BM Media Express recording software.

Can this device work with OBS studio?
Asked by: MENG YONG
I should think so. I have been recording output from a satellite DVR (hdmi out to UTap) and to my Mac laptop (OS 10.13). I have used QuickTime Player and the dropdown menu next to the record button listed the Utap immediately. I should think your software will also display it as a source.

Yes, you will be able to connect the D850 to this device through HDMI. The Mac Pro will then see it as web cam.
