About the Product
The next generation of game capture is here. The Live Gamer ULTRA (LGU) brings 4K capture to the table while its pass-through allows gamers to fully experience what 4K HDR is all about. Not limited to 4K HDR, this compact device can pass-through high refresh rates of up to 240 Hz on a Full HD signal.
Gaming just got this much better. The Live Gamer Portable 2 Plus builds on its predecessor, the LGP2, keeping great flexibility with three integrated modes, multiple audio inputs and audio mixer control, while adding a whole new pass through technology to support Ultra HD 4K resolution at 60 frames per second.
