Fancy yourself a game streamer or YouTube content creator? Then you’ll need the right tools. If you’re starting out, you may want to take a look at this entry-level capture card from Elgato, which is currently discounted for Black Friday.
For entry-level creators.
The Elgato HD60 S is ideal for those who want to get into content creation or video game streaming without breaking the bank.
With over $30 in savings, the Elgato HD60 S capture card allows you to record directly from an HDMI source from an Xbox One or Xbox Series X/S console, by connecting it in-line between your console and your TV. Then, powered by USB, you can export that footage across to a PC for video editing, live streaming, and more.
The Elgato HD60 S is compatible with practically any HDMI device, ideal for capturing footage from an Xbox One, or Xbox Series S given that it’s designed around a 1080p signal. It won’t pass-through 4K video, though, making it less ideal for the Xbox Series X. To get around that, I use what is, in my opinion, one of the best Xbox accessories out there, the Techole HDMI switch, putting my capture card signal onto one cable for recording games, and full 4K on the other switch for general gaming.
