In February, Asus first announced its own capture device but did not reveal any details. Now the manufacturer has officially launched the TUF gaming capture box. It allows console or PC games to record and stream live in 4K resolution. This device will surely revolutionize game recording and streaming in the video gaming industry.
Asus TUF Gaming Capture Box Overview
The Asus TUF Gaming capture box supports passthrough video in up to 4K HDR at 60 Hz and offloads to capture video in up to 4K at 30 Hz for high-quality Livestream visuals. Not only it allows gamers to simply connect to any PC with USB 3.2 Type-C but also to begin streaming and recording immediately without any extra drivers or utilities required. Similarly, certified OBS Studio compatibility ensures optimal usage on a wide variety of streaming platforms. It is also durable due to the presence of an alloy outer shell.
Furthermore, controller and headset connections enable audio from team comms to be shared with the audience. Two 3.5 mm jacks enable connection with a controller and headset are available for game console party mode. Compact, half-palm-size design of the box helps you maintain a neat workspace. Last but not the least, the capture box delivers video streaming in 4K up to 30 fps, 2K up to 60 fps, and Full HD up to 120 fps.
The 10.5 x 8 x 2 cm housing is made of aluminum and weighs 173 grams, with passive cooling. Underneath the jack connections is RGB lighting that acts as an LED status on the front. The TUF gaming capture box does not support HDCP signals, which means that copy-protected content – HDP can be disabled on PlayStation consoles, and HDCP will only be enabled on Xbox consoles when opening video applications such as Netflix.
