New Razer Ripsaw HD Capture Card Announced
If you’re a livestreamer or constantly find yourself in broadcasting setups, then chances are that you either have a capture card or have interests in owning one. This piece of news may be one that would spark an interest as Razer has announced a brand new external capture card called the Razer Ripsaw HD.
The Razer Ripsaw HD is a compact external capture card with “pro-grade” features. It is capable of 4K 60FPS passthrough as well as capturing video in smooth Full HD 60FPS. It is designed for smooth gameplay recording and livestreaming.
It is compatible with PC and console, utilizing a HDMI input and output for video capture with a single USB 3.0 connection. It also has built-in audio mixing so streamers can broadcast both game and microphone audio through the capture card with zero latency and no syncing delays. The microphone input allows streamers to use one microphone across two PCs, removing the need for complicated audio mixer or software set-ups and allowing streamers to use in-game communications whilst still broadcasting their voice audio to their stream.
This new piece of hardware gives gamers a complete livestreaming solution from Razer, together with the Razer Kiyo webcam and Razer Seiren X microphone.
