I am looking for a HDMI capture device that receives HDMI Video and Audio from Digital / Video cameras, and sends it to my laptop via USB. On my PC I would like to use it on Adobe Live Media Encoder for Streaming over the net.
Can anyone suggest any devices that are available in the market for this.
I have not bought the camera, and am open to whichever model suits the capture card (probably from Sony, there are enough Sony cameras with HDMI output but I do not know if any of these use HDCP). Examples of camera could be Sony Cybershot DSC-WX150 having mini-hdmi port, or even a good Android mobile such as Samsung Galaxy SIII which supports conversion from its mini-USB port to HDMI output
Today, I am using an old Sony video camera, that has an S-Video output. I connect it to a capture card with S-Video input (a local product called Intex TV box), which feeds the video to my Laptop at resolution 680 x 480.
I am planning to upgrade to a HDMI camera and hence need for a HDMI capture card (USB based). The resolution I am looking for is 720p with 30 frames per second. 1080p will be a bonus but not essential.
Hope this clarifies.
Thanks Alk3997. I looked at the product you mentioned. It is a PCI express card, and will not fit into my laptop. Hence I am looking for a similar capture card, but where the video and audio are fed to the laptop via USB port instead of the PCI express slot.
I actually want to do LIVE streaming of events as and when they occur, and a camera with recording facility is not suitable. Hence the need for a capture card.
I agree with you comment on the mobile phone. However there are a couple of Samsung android mobiles with proper camera - ie. Camera lens with 10x or 21x optical zoom (Samsung camera GC100 and Samsung S4 Zoom - both these should output HDMI via the MHL to HDMI adapter).
Thanks Alk3997. I do not have express card slot on my Dell laptop. I do have USB 3.0 though.
