Marshall Electronics just upgraded its 3GSDI/HDMI to USB 3.0 converter product category. The VAC-23SHU3 USB 3.0 adapter enables any HDMI or 3G/HD-SDI video and audio source to be ingested into a computer for livestreaming, videoconferencing, collaboration, video production and recording. These converters are simple to use and offer a plug-and-play setup that integrates professional video sources to the user’s choice of PC-based soft codecs and applications.
Users can select either an HDMI or 3G/HD-SDI video source with the flip of a switch. Active HDMI/3G-SDI (BNC) loop-through outputs keep sources available for other purposes, such as feeding monitors, switchers, recorders, etc. UVC protocol support allows the application to control the video format, resolution, frame rates and other settings independent of the original source format.
The VAC-23SHU3 features a rugged and compact design for enhanced portability with power provided through the USB 3.0 output. Powered by the USB port on the host computer, there are no power adapters, which is especially helpful for mobile applications.
