One of the best companies in the video conferencing and live streaming / broadcast business is Magewell. If you haven't heard of them, today at 2PM. PTZOptics is hosting a live interview on YouTube. Magewell has become the goto source for frame grabbers, capture cards and the ever popular HDMI to USB devices for DIY video projects.
I recently go the oppurtunity to ask Kate Koch what the top 3 Magewell products are and hand down she said the HDMI to USB 3.0 frame grabbers are selling like crazy. Personally, I think it's because of the high demand from cloud based video conferencing providers such as GoToMeeting, WebEX and Zoom who need a way to bring HDMI sources into their software based / soft codec web conferencing systems. But Kate explained that there are many other reasons why this product is becoming an industry standard. Check out the video below.
