International leader in graphics and productivity software, Corel, has announced Roxio Game Capture HD PRO, the most comprehensive and easiest way to capture, edit, and share gameplay. The latest version of this popular capture device is now fully-functional in HD, and the first to offer live streaming.
“Roxio Game Capture HD PRO is the perfect all-in-one solution; with a top-of-the-line capture card that encodes in H.264, enabling it to record in 720p and 1080 60i/30p, a fully-featured video editor tailored specifically to the needs of a gamer, and the ability to live stream without leaving the application via a new partnership with game streaming authority Twitch,” says Simon Campbell-Young, CEO of Corel’s local distribution partner, Phoenix Distribution.
Thanks to its partnership with Twitch, the world’s largest video game broadcasting community, Roxio Game Capture HD Pro allows live streaming of gameplay directly from the application to a Twitch channel and a realtime voiceover to be added during gameplay to communicate with viewers.
“We’re proud to partner with forward-thinking companies like Roxio,” says Kevin Lin, chief operations officer of Twitch.
“We believe in the very near future playing a game will be the same thing as broadcasting a game. As the world’s largest live video platform and community for gamers, we are very interested in making it as easy as possible for people to capture and share their gameplay. Roxio is helping gamers do just that.”
The gaming edition of Roxio’s market leading video editing solution can turn gameplay footage into incredible movies. The software includes gaming-specific editing options to give every video a professional look and feel; use the integrated voice changer to match voiceover to game, the picture-in-picture feature to layer separate video tracks, and choose from over 90 different transitions to create impressive movies.
