AverMedia Game Capture HD C281

Many moons ago, myself and Tony (fellow Fictionshed founder) spent a some time attempting to find a way to record output from the Xbox for our ViperPilots project.

For episode 4 we planned to use the Halo 3 engine, as the capture/playback featue is awesome and gave us everything we need to create the episode, in a machinima Red vs Blue style. The only downside was attempting to get the video out of Halo, and onto the mac for it to be edited together. Bungie do offer a solution to this, however wanted this  to be Game agnostic.

When we initially looked, there were only a handful of solutions, and to be honest a little pricey, so we put the ViperPilots project on hold.

Jump forward to last Monday, I was involved in a Trials Evolution practice Tournament, whereby one of the member (Oli) was able to record the entire thing. After watching this back on YouTube, I was sold.

Please note, may contain strong language…as it’s one of the most frustrating games in the world !

The unit itself is quite clever, just pop in 2.5″ hard drive and your ready to go. The good thing is, with a 1TB drive, you can get over 250 hours worth of 1080i real time video, and who know how many screen shots.

As you can see from the below the device works by passing through the video, it has a universal console input (Xbox, PS3 and Wii), and then output to the TV via component cables, with no noticeable lag (if your running in real time mode)

The machine itself has a menu whereby you can view, edit delete all your previous recording, and manage the setting, however if you want to get the video onto a computer for you to edit there, simply plug in a USB stick and copy the file you want onto that.

One of the interesting features is the snapshot feature, this will allow you to play back a video in slow motion, frame be frame until you get the image you want, you can then capture this image in the full 1080 resolution.

All in all, this is a fantastic piece of kit, and I look forward to spamming YouTube with 100’s of hours of captured video.

As always, unboxing photos below.
