dongle-connectivity V1The INOGENI 4K HDMI to USB 3.0 Converter is the most easy and reliable tool to capture uncompressed video with audio from your camera's HDMI output for your PC for recording, editing, videoconferencing and streaming applications. No drive installation is necessary and it will work on all motherboards and USB 3.0 chipsets. It features a single HDMI input and USB 3.0 output, and supports SD and HDTV video formats, up to Ultra HD 4K (4096x2160), and most computer graphic formats. Compact in size and powered directly from a USB 3.0 port, the converter is a practical and easy-to-use USB 3.0 capture solution. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX, Linux, and Android operating systems, and is UVC-compliant, so it will work with all DirectShow compatible software.

The converter supports Ultra HD resolutions up to 30 fps and 1080p resolutions up to 60 fps. All SD and HD resolution signals are converted to 4:2:2 8-bit or 4:2:0 12-bit color spaces over USB 3.0, while all UHD resolution signals are converted to 4:2:0. The embedded audio in your HDMI signals are extracted and output as two-channel LPCM. A USB 3.0 cable comes included.
