Whether you want to become the next Twitch gaming sensation, or you just want to stream your gameplay with your mates, a capture card is a great investment.
If you’re not in the know, a capture card is a device that captures footage from a game or other activity on screen, encodes the footage and then allows you to stream it online on a platform such as YouTube or Twitch.
Capture cards are available either as internal components or as external devices that will simply plug into your PC using a cable. Video capture cards will often be able to capture video and sound from a variety of inputs such as HDMI, DVI, VGA and others.
When selecting a capture card for your system it’s important to select one that is both compatible with your set-up, but will also deliver the target resolution and frame rate you’re hoping to achieve with your streams. At present, most people target 1080p at 30FPS.
At CCL we stock a wide range of internal and external HDMI and VGA capture cards from brands such as Elgato, AVerMedia, Razer and StarTech.
