Magewell’s USB Fusion enables producers and presenters to switch between multiple live and file-based sources, or to combine inputs in picture-in-picture or side-by-side layouts. The results can be captured into popular Windows, Mac or Linux software via the hardware’s USB 3.0 interface or output over HDMI to a projector, display or downstream production equipment. On-device buttons and a browser-based web interface provide easy operation and configuration, while the free USB Fusion companion app for iOS and Android tablets offers expanded layout controls and advanced presentation tools ranging from playlists and recording to annotations and telestration.

USB Fusion now supports wireless casting protocols including AirPlay, Google Cast and Miracast, enabling easy sharing of content from Apple, Android, Windows and Chromebook devices. Up to four simultaneous wireless sources can be combined in a screencast scene layout, which can then be switched with USB Fusion’s dual 1080p60 HDMI inputs, USB webcam input, and media file sources.

The wireless sharing features will be available in an upcoming free firmware upgrade, planned for release later this month. This update marks the third significant USB Fusion feature expansion in the past few months, joining other recent enhancements including user-defined mapping of scene layouts to on-device buttons; enhanced graphics tools; the ability to control PowerPoint presentations on a connected computer; scheduled recording; ISO recording; Google Drive integration and more.
