Magewell’s USB Capture HDMI and USB Capture HDMI Plus Receive Zoom Certification


Magewell today announced that the company’s USB Capture HDMI and USB Capture HDMI Plus external video capture devices have been certified by Zoom for wired content capture with Zoom Rooms. Magewell says the new certification further “reinforces the devices’ leadership in allowing users to bring AV signals into video conferencing software easily.”

The company claims the USB Capture and USB Capture Plus enable all types of computers, including laptops, to capture AV signals through a standard USB 3.0 interface. In addition to bringing in wired screenshare inputs, the devices can also capture signals from a wide range of sources, including professional production cameras, media players and game consoles.

Featuring driver-free installation and automatic input format detection for true plug-and-play operation, Magewell says the USB Capture devices support Windows, Mac, Linux and ChromeOS operating systems and offer instant compatibility with popular video conferencing, streaming, encoding, live production and lecture capture software. USB Capture Plus models offer all of the same capabilities and add an analog audio input, stereo headphone output and loop-through connectivity to simultaneously send source signals to a monitor or projector without needing a splitter or router. In addition to the Zoom-certified models with 1080p HDMI inputs, Magewell also offers configurations with 4K resolution and SDI input connectivity.
