With PS4’s HDCP Disabled, Use AVerMedia’s Capture Devices to Enhance Gameplay Sharing

Taipei, Taiwan—May 28, 2014        

Sony has announced on their PlayStation Blog a system software update  to the PlayStation 4 that can disable High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP). Eliminating an elaborate pass-through to capture video will appeal to gamers who enjoy sharing their content with others. Now, record gameplay directly from PS4 with the upgraded firmware 1.7 using any AVerMedia HDMI capture devices, including AVerMedia’s CV710 ExtremeCap U3, C875Live Gamer Portable (LGP), GL310 LGP Lite, C285 Game Capture HD II, C985 Live Gamer HD, and the upcoming EzRecorder 130.


With PS4, the HDCP toggle is all or nothing: once HDCP is turned off, then that feature applies for all apps on the console. Unlike the component cables previously required, gamers can record directly off any of the four AVerMedia capture devices. The 1.7 update  that includes the HDCP off feature landed globally on April 30, 2014. 

Disabling HDCP empowers gamers to showcase a staggering range of new footage via the AVerMedia capture devices. In particular, this change benefits YouTube gamers and online audiences, whose numbers may likely grow with the surge of new materials. Using the HDMI or component inputs, save content directly onto an SD card PC-free via LGP or onto a PC via LGP Lite. For gamers with USB 3.0 ports, use ExtremeCap U3 to record and stream 1080p 60fps gameplay. Alternatively, use Game Capture HD II to preserve gameplay in pristine HD quality before editing and sharing directly to YouTube.

PS4’s disabling option for HDCP – coupled with AVerMedia’s leading capture devices: ExtremeCap U3, Live Gamer Portable (LGP), LGP Lite, Game Capture HD II, Live Gamer HD, Live Gamer HD Lite, and the upcoming EzRecorder 130. – are bound to add vitality, depth, and enhanced sharing to the gaming experience.

Offloads the cpu usage that streaming software monitor capture uses.
Compatible with Xsplit and Open Broadcaster Software
Easy to install.
Very nice retail packaging.
The included software is crap, but you really don't need it.
This little card has increased my in-game FPS when streaming CS:GO, SC2, and WoW, by eliminating the high cpu usage that monitor capture in streaming software like OBS and Xsplit requires.

It also works perfectly when I want to hookup my WiiU to stream or record some gameplay. I originally bought the card when I purchased a WiiU so that I could fool around with that on Twitch. When I also found out that it made streaming my normal PC games better, I was hooked! Likely will buy a second one so I don't have to move cables around when I decide I want to switch from WiiU to PC streaming.

This should also work flawlessly with other consoles, as long as you're using HDMI input =)

Works as advertized.
Hot button is a great feature.
Setup requires some minor tweaking but the company website is a bit tricky to navigate for details.
Overall I'm extremely satisfied with this card. Unlike software capture solutions, there is no noticeable reduction in performance when using the card. The hot button means you never have to worry about overlapping hotkeys for start/stop record and other in-game functions. The card also eliminates headaches due to incompatibilities between your recording software and any particular game/application.

The only criticism I have is that it took some hunting to find troubleshooting tips and general setup information for the card. It wasn't difficult to get the card set up and working, but it did require some tweaking and that process could have been made easier by a centralized article with all the pertinent details.

Shiped with in 1 day of me ordering it. Compreses videos well recording make a 10 min video at full 1080p 4gbs. Must buy.
None so fair
This is a good buy its easy to use and can record and stream consoles

Experience: 4 Months
great quality
easy to set up
make sure you have lots of HDD/SSD space
I replaced my Hapauge gamer HD with this what a world of difference. This excels at keeping frame rates constant, while delivering a clear and sharp looking recording, would recommend this to anyone looking at getting some game capture footage

- Records 1080p quality footage on the fly a 30FPS
- Virtually no performance hit due to built-in hardware/encoding engine
- Easy to Install, Configure and Use
- One touch button to activate while in game
- Comes with a 3 Month premium license for XSplit Broadcaster
- Price is a little steep
- Files are a tad more compressed then I would have liked.
Very nice solution for those looking to broadcast  gaming sessions be they intense/demanding FPS shooters or DOTA/LoL/Star Craft cast ing. Love this little thing.

Ease of use.
Drivers are not perfect.
The AverMedia Live Gamer HD works as advertised, assuming that it doesn't conflict with your GPU drivers.

The interface is fairly intuitive and it allows you to quickly hook up a game console or other device and record from it directly.

Experience: 45 Days

Concept is great
Works mostly
Driver dev team has no clue
So, this card. The concept is AWESOME. It works decently enough...but using any industry leading editor on the video files and the audio sync goes out. They claim they are trying to fix this but apparently this has been a problem since this card was created EARLY 2012.
