The Live Gamer 4 K and Live Gamer ULTRA cards will ship out on June 25, while the Live Game EXTREME 2 is available now online and in retail.

AVerMedia offers capture cards for all gamer types, as the company additionally confirmed today the upcoming Live Gamer ULTRA, a driverless, laptop-friendly external card supporting both PCs and Macs that can capture up to 4Kp30 with full 4K HDR passthrough and onboard video processing, and the Live Gamer EXTREME 2, a smaller external card with customizable graphic cover, 4K passthrough, onboard downscaling and 1080p60 recording.

“The goal of our Live Gamer 4K UHD line of capture cards is to give streamers a strong range of 4K options to stream, record and share spectacular gameplay visuals and audio,” said David Kao, Marketing Director of AVerMedia. “Game streamers are the new rock stars, and AVerMedia caters to today’s celebrities while also providing aspiring and upcoming influencers with affordable, high quality tools as they prepare for a bright future.”

Game streaming is one of the fastest growing entertainment sectors, with over 100M monthly users on Twitch alone.
