Capture Express is a simple, dedicated tool for previewing, recording or streaming one input source. It can also help users easily verify their input signals and capture devices, and it supports video recording up to 4K at 60 frames per second. The software can automatically detect the compatible graphics hardware in the host system and leverages GPU-accelerated H.264 encoding when possible, using the CPU for encoding only as necessary. Magewell capture devices are well supported by this software tool.
Capture Express records one channel of video as mp4 files to your local storage. Users can customize the resolution, frame rate, bitrate and color space of the recording, or simply choose “match source” for easy setting. Capture Express uses H.264 and H.265 encoding format for video compression.
Users can stream to Facebook/YouTube/Twitch servers. At the same time, Capture Express also supports RTMP, SRT Caller, SRT
listener, TS over UDP, TS over RTP and other live protocols. Users can manually add, edit and delete live stream servers.
* Magewell decoders support various streaming protocols including SRT.
Users can take one or five continuous snapshots by simply one click, or take snapshots by self-defined time interval.
The software provides various video processing functions such as cropping, up/down scaling, brightness/hue/saturation/contrast control. These processing functions are done by the FPGA in the capture hardware with 0 CPU usage.
Capture Express supports running multiple instances (up to 9) simultaneously to perform independent video processing tasks, users can use different capture devices to capture video signals in multiple Capture Express working in parallel.
