London, UK, 16/05/2013 - Hauppauge Digital, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAUP) has announced that users of its popular HD PVR 2 console and PC gaming personal video recorder range have a new all-in-one recording, streaming and editing application.  'Hauppauge Capture' is a free download to all HD PVR 2 users, and is a powerful video capture which allows console and PC gamers to both record and live stream their game play along with commentary. Hauppauge Capture provides:

Hauppauge Capture's mixer has independent control of game and chat audio. Hauppauge Capture also supports the HD PVR 2's built-in record button, which is mounted in the top cover of all HD PVR 2 models, to allow users to instantly start and stop recordings directly from their HD PVR 2.

Hauppauges' SteamEez application, built into Hauppauge Capture, uses the HD PVR 2 hardware video encoder to stream live game play via Twitch or Ustream. Gamers can create high quality, low bit rate streaming game events for Twitch or Ustream followers. The built-in hardware video encoding means live streaming over the Internet will require minimal system resources.

Game play can be recorded with Hauppauge Capture in full 1080p HD from a gaming PC using HDMI or Sony® PlayStation®3 or Microsoft® Xbox® 360. A simple to use quality slide control allows users to choose their recording and streaming quality level. Hauppauge Capture runs on a Windows laptop or desktop PC using Windows XP, Vista, 7 or 8.

Hauppauge Capture will help users to maximise their game recording experience, benefiting from ‘one-click' functionality for  Capture, Edit, YouTube, SteamEez, Settings, all in one application. Here is a screenshot of the Hauppauge Capture application.

A personal logo inserter also allows users to "burn" a personalised logo directly into their recordings. It's an all-in-one gaming application designed for gamers by gamers!
