XSplit Broadcaster is one of the world’s most popular broadcast and live streaming applications with a user base ranging from teenage hobbyists to professional casters.
Hong Kong (PRWEB) August 16, 2012
SplitmediaLabs announced today that it has entered into a licensing agreement with AVerMedia, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of professional and consumer oriented capture cards. As part of this license agreement, AVerMedia has started shipping a 3-month XSplit Premium license with their latest and greatest capture cards for gamers – the Live Gamer HD C985 capture card.
XSplit Broadcaster is one of the world’s most widespread and easy-to-use broadcasting and live streaming applications. XSplit allows users to produce TV-like live internet video streams using public or private networks. It has built-in support and automatic configuration for popular eSports and social streaming services like Twitch.tv, Own3D.tv, Justin.tv, Livestream.com, and UStream.tv.
“We have seen a soaring demand for our capture card products in the gaming community, and in recognition of how XSplit Broadcaster has become the de facto standard for video game streaming, we saw a great opportunity to team up with SplitmediaLabs and the XSplit team to give our customers even more than what they bargained for. For the upcoming version of 1.1 of XSplit, we worked closely with the XSplit team on the integration of XSplit with the advanced functions of the new Live Gamer HD C985. Shipping an XSplit license to our customers who purchased the Live Gamer HD C985 provides them a 360° solution for streaming video games on PCs and consoles,” says AVerMedia Product Manager, HungSheng Su.
AVerMedia started shipping the Live Gamer HD C985 along with a free XSplit 3-month License since early July 2012. The new powerful card has been well received, but users will have to wait for the upcoming XSplit 1.1 release expected later in August, to try out the encoder functions with XSplit.
“The Live Gamer HD is more than just a capture card – it is a raw frame capture card with a built-in hardware encoder. Combined with XSplit 1.1, this card gives users some very exciting new possibilities. For casters and gamers with high PC specs, the card is ideal for recording in high quality at high bitrates while simultaneously using XSplit’s built-in x264 encoder for live streaming.
For users with more modest PC specifications, it’s a gift sent from heaven. Users with medium to low-end CPUs can utilize the C985’s hardware encoder for the actual stream encoding; thus, preventing CPU overload,” says SplitmediaLabs CEO, Henrik Levring.
