    32100 - Overview

    With a ruggedized metal housing, the Magewell 32100 USB Capture SDI 4K Plus is a 1-channel 4K capture dongle that can capture SD/HD/3G/2K/6G SDI signals with embedded audio and loop-through SD/HD/3G/2K/6G SDI signals. It's suitable for all kinds of mobile video capturing settings, even for outdoor use.

    The dongle has 10/12-bit color depth support, has support for up to 8 mono audio channels at 48kHz, captures resolutions of up to 4096 x 2160 and frame rates of up to 120fps. It allows for full 8-bit video processing with features such as cropping, scaling, de-interlacing, aspect ratio, color format and frame rate conversion and vertical flip and mirror.It has an input interface as well as a loop-through one, which enables monitoring the image while streaming/recording. Audio input is available through the Line In 3.5mm jack and audio output via the Line Out 3.5mm jack, which enables you to extract the embedded audio from the SDI signal. You have the ability to connect multiple devices to one system and they all can be upgraded simultaneously. High quality chips and other components are used to ensure accurate video capture. The dongles pass through continuous high load tests in temperatures ranging from 32°F - 104°F, 24/7.

    The USB Capture Plus Family features a good user experience because it's so easy to use, and many of the functions are automatic. Users don't need to install drivers on Windows, Linux, or Mac OS X. Simply plug it in and the driver will be installed. The dongles are plug-and-play and driverless. These dongles automatically determine the input video format and then automatically converts it to the specified output size and frame rate. It will determine the input audio format and convert it to 48kHz PCM stereo audio. The device is compatible with most popular professional third party software for streaming, recording, video conferencing, video stitching, VJ, etc. It supports multiple Windows, Linux, Mac operating systems as well as Chrome operating system, Windows, Linux and Mac OS APIs and multiple software platforms such as vMix, Wirecast and Adobe Flash Media Encoder.

    USB 3.1 interface is used and no external power is needed. It also has a USB 2.0 port, but the real-time frame rate and transmission will be reduced through this port due to limited bandwidth.

    Includes a USB-A to USB-C adapter.
