Warsaw, March 8, 2021 – What is better than one Avermedia? Two in the same case, i.e. the GC570D.
The streamer workstation should be a tidy, but also not overcrowded place. A large number of USB peripherals, such as interfaces or microphones, force you to play with the clutter of wires.
Avermedia Live Gamer Duo allows you to reduce this mess by at least two devices, being the solution to the PCI-Express slot on your PC. Why am I writing two at once? Because the suffix “Duo” or “D” in the GC570D refers to doubling the ability to capture an image. Two HDMI inputs can simultaneously handle the image from the mirrorless camera in 1080p at 60 frames and from the console in 4K at 60 with HDR or in 1080p at 240 FPS.
Similar values are also achieved by the output HDMI (Pass-Through), to which the HDMI 2.0 cable connects the screen to which the signal from the first HDMI input is to be transmitted. There is no second preview input. I checked the effectiveness of this solution on the example of my own station and I must admit that the result satisfies me. If I were to reach for something from the Avermerdia stable today, it would be the Duo, which is clearly visible from this mini-test.
Who is Avermedia Live Gamer Duo for? From the price perspective, Avermedia Live Gamer Duo is equipment for professionals or wealthier hobbyists.
After all, not everyone uses a mirrorless camera as a webcam and a second computer or gaming console. For an ordinary bread eater, or even a novice streamer, a single solution and a USB webcam are enough. It does not change the fact that doubling the usability is a bull’s eye, especially with the capture card built directly into the computer on the PCI-E connector. With only one source to intercept, I would feel an irreparable loss of slot bandwidth, though these are the sounds of my inner geek. The only real disadvantage of this device is its price, which now exceeds PLN 1100, but two separate interceptors would be more expensive and would take twice as much space. I leave the bill to you.
