Capture and Stream in 2K
The Magewell USB Capture SDI Plus dongle is capable of bringing 2K SD/HD/3G/ video and audio inputs to any computer or laptop through USB 3.0. This capture dongle is the perfect choice for professional broadcast and production. It can record or stream signals from a wide range of devices such as SDI PTZ cameras, video switchers and many more. The USB Capture Plus family offers users more power with added features including output for video capture and monitoring, and signal loop-through. Moreover, discrete analog audio is supported on all USB plus devices. Our Capture dongles offer true plug-and-play operation and feature driver-free installation. In addition, they are instantly recognized by many streaming software and run on any Windows, Mac, Linux and Chrome system.

Ultra Low Latency, High Frame Rate Capture
The Magewell USB Capture SDI Plus offers low-latency and high frame rate capture at 120fps to ensure smooth and professional video production. The Loop-through feature enables users to stream and record video with minimal delay. For optimal low-latency performance, it is very important that users select the right software and hardware during the entire capturing process.
The Magewell USB Capture SDI Plus is used across many different industries and serves each in its own way. This dongle is able to capture SDI signals that are transmitted from a distance up to 150 meters (3G-SDI). Its versatility and compatibility with a wide variety of software makes the dongle suitable for Broadcasting, streaming, web conferencing, lecture capture, live production, medical imaging and more.
Web Conferencing & Lecture Capture
Compatible with Zoom Rooms, Microsoft Teams Rooms, Skype for Business, Google Hangouts, GoToMeeting, VLC, OBS Studio, XSplit, etc.
Low-Latency Capture and Streaming
The Magewell USB Capture SDI Plus supports low-latency and high frame Rate Capture.
Remote telemedicine with incorporated live video streaming can be facilitated and improves remote surgical education signficantly.
FPGA-based Video Processing
Magewell has implemented FPGA-based video processing into all USB capture Plus devices for high-quality up/down conversion and image adjustments. The dongles do not require additional power sources and have a zero-CPU-usage to maximize CPU availability for third-party software.
