Today, AverMedia is known to be amongst the world’s top producers of consumer video capture devices. It is finding popularity amongst streamers and content creators alike. The annual CES in Las Vegas that is occurring next month will announce a whole bunch of product announcements right around the corner. Presumably, one out of them will be a new AverMedia capture device with support for recording 4K HDR streams at 60 frames per second, moving high-end captures from high-end desktops to mobile devices.
Moreover, AverMedia did this announcement in a Twitter post. The company didn’t specify whether the unveiling will take place at CES or not. But, mentioned that it is slated for 2020. However, it would be unlikely, if the annual event-CES came and went without a formal announcement from AverMedia.

AverMedia Capture Device Expected Functionality
At the present time, it is not known how this external capture device functions, or how will it connect to a PC. AverMedia has just posted that such a device will come in 2020, no other detail is disclosed presently.
AverMedia’s 4K 60 FPS capture device will likely require a higher-end version of USB to connect to a PC. At least a USB that works for 4K 60FPS recording. With such info in mind, it is likely for AverMedia’s external 4K 60 FPS HDR capture device to use USB 3.1 Gen 2 (10Gbps) for PC connectivity. It is so because today’s Live Gamer Ultra GC53 currently uses USB 3.1 Gen 1 (5Gbps) for 4k 30FPS gameplay. This situation also depicts that AverMedia also has a higher-end internal 4K capture card in the works. A potential nominee for this is a model which supports 4K 120FPS over HDMI 2.1
The release of HDMI 2.1 devices will be seen in the form of PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X consoles in 2020. It means that capture device makers like AverMedia and Elgato has to step up to deliver well-matched solutions at the launch. Although AverMedia 4K Capture Device doesn’t reach the limits of HDMI 2.1. Still, it represents a major step up over other external capture solutions.
