Avermedia GC550 Live Gamer Extreme, Video Capture Card for Xbox 360/Xbox One/PS3/PS4 to PC, 1080p 60fps Max Recording is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing stream quality The picture quality this thing gives out is incredible. It's almost picture perfect between what I see and what my viewers see on streams. Setup is simple: PS4 <HDMI> LGX LGX <HDMI> Display LGX <USB3> PC Launch capture software > add camera > Avermedia GC550 and that's it. I currently stream my PS4 gameplay using 1080p resolution @ 60FPS using this with a broadcast bitrate of 5000kb/sec and this thing literally never skips a beat. I've had a lot of people asking me which Capture Card I'm using for my channel since I picked this up and most are actually surprised when I say it's an Avermedia (One viewer actually thought I was using something along the lines of a black magic capture card). I was a little dubious about buying this at first, after having problems with the Avermedia C985 and not being all that impressed with it's quality. But budget limited me to getting this and I have to admit I am glad it did. Keep in mind that this will not work as an encoder, it is simply a passthrough for a dual PC setup and/or console streaming via a PC. However, it does this extremely well.
