QUICK-SDI SDI to USB 2.0 Encoder is the most reliable and convenient solution to capture high quality HD video with audio over USB 2.0 from your camera's SDI output for recording, editing, videoconferencing and streaming applications. It is compatible with Windows, Mac OSX and Linux operating systems. It requires no driver and works with all applications such as Skype, Zoom, Hangout, Facebook, YouTube and many more. It is the best capture solution for legacy systems with only USB 2.0 ports (see INOGENI USB 3.0 converters for uncompressed capture).

It features a SDI input and USB 2.0 output. It supports all SD & HD video formats up to 60 fps. Compact in size and powered directly from a USB 2.0 port, the converter is a practical and easy-to-use USB 2.0 capture solution. The encoder is UVC-compliant, so it works with all DirectShow compatible software.
