Magewell release 3 new capture tools for their line up of PCIe, USB and Convert hardware devices

Magewell – Innovating to Enhance Live Production Workflows – Have released MAGEWELL BRIDGE for NDI, allowing video and audio from a Magewell capture device to appear as a live source to any other NDI-enabled software and systems on the network. Providing a software-based alternative to Magewell’s PRO CONVERT NDI HARDWARE CONVERTERS, Magewell Bridge supports all resolutions and frame rates available through the associated capture device – including Ultra HD video with 4K models. When used with multi-channel capture cards or multiple Magewell capture devices in the same computer, Magewell Bridge can simultaneously convert up to four channels of 1080p video into NDI streams on host systems with sufficient processing power.

New features in CAPTURE EXPRESS version 3.0 include a redesigned, more intuitive user interface; GPU-accelerated H.264 encoding; single-click snapshots of one or multiple still frames; a ‘borderless’ mode for seamlessly previewing video spliced across multiple sources; audio level adjustments; and the ability to run up to nine concurrent instances of the software in support of multi-channel cards or multiple devices on one host system. Users can automatically match recording parameters to the input source, or leverage the FPGA-based video processing of the capture device including cropping, scaling and image controls.

The third new software offering enables editors to capture video and audio through Magewell hardware directly from within the Adobe Premiere Pro CC user interface, expanding the well-established live production benefits of Magewell’s products into the post production domain. Utilising the same recording core as Capture Express 3.0, the new Premiere plug-in supports GPU-accelerated H.264 encoding as well as the FPGA-based video processing features of the capture devices.

All three new software tools run on the Windows operating system and are compatible with Magewell’s USB CAPTURE and USB CAPTURE PLUS external devices; PRO CAPTURE PCIe cards; and Eco Capture M.2 hardware. The Capture Express software additionally supports Magewell’s first-generation capture cards and boxes. Capture Express V3 and Magewell Bridge for NDI are available for download immediately, with a beta version of the Premiere Pro plug-in scheduled for release June 2019. (Press Release)
