The Magewell Eco Capture HDMI 4K M.2 Card allows you to connect an HDMI source to your computer and capture up to DCI 4K 4096 x 2160 resolution with embedded audio. Featuring an M.2 (PCIe 2.0) computer interface, this card provides the flexibility to be used in compact/thin tablet computers and other small form factor PCs where PCIe slots may be at a minimum. It's compatible with Windows and Linux operating systems and is capable of operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week while an LED indicator confirms the working state of the input the entire time (idle, input signal locked, memory failed, or FPGA configuration).

 

The Eco Capture HDMI 4K M.2 Card also offers many processing and other features, including resolution scaling and a high-fidelity pipeline. The card has a native JST SHD input connector and comes with a matching SHD to HDMI type A adapter cable for connecting your HDMI signal.
