Back in November, AVerMedia revealed the Live Gamer Portable for the first time at Dreamhack Winter. Today, the company provided some more details about this unit. The Live Gamer Portable can capture and stream high definition gameplay footage much like the Hauppague HD PVR 2 Gaming Edition, Elgato Game Capture HD and others, but it does so in a very small package.
The Live Gamer Portable is small enough to fit in a pocket and is also powered by USB. In addition to that, it also includes a SD card slot to store footage when it’s used in “PC-free” mode. PC-free mode can record videos in 720p HD quality. The video files are encoded in H.264 format which means it’ll be very easy to upload the videos to sites such as YouTube. We’ll be able to use the Live Gamer Portable with consoles that utilize HDMI and component inputs such as the PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U. Should you choose to stream your gameplay, you’ll get a three month license to XSplit for free.
AVerMedia didn’t announce a price or release date for the Live Gamer Portable. It is however holding a contest on Facebook to give away engineering samples of the device. The contest will end on February 22.
