Game streaming is a difficult task, especially when high resolutions and new technologies like HDR are considered. While basic solutions can provide more than enough visual clarity to the masses, high-end users will still want to see videos with the highest levels of image quality, full HDR support and higher framerates than run of the mill streams. 

AVerMedia is one of the leaders of the game streaming hardware scene, with the Live Gamer series offering PC users the opportunity to stream their games and other projects to the masses with relative ease. Now, AVerMedia wants to push their technology into the 4K era, creating the world's first external 4K 60FPS and 1080p 240FPS video capture solution on the market. Meet the Live Gamer Bolt

Hold on, external 4K video capture? How? Yes, such high-resolution content is beyond the capabilities of normal USB ports. With their Live Gamer Bolt, AVerMedia is offering consumers a video capture solution which can support Thunderbolt 3.0, utilising the bandwidth offered by the standard to deliver 4K 60FPS HDR streams and support for 1080p streams at 240Hz and 1440p streams at 144Hz. Not bad for an external setup. 

The benefits of an external setup are obvious. It's portable. You can bring it with you to events to quickly capture high-resolution video. Need to capture 4K footage at E3 or Gamescom from a high-resolution PC, PS4 Pro or Xbox One X? This is where the AVerMedia Live Gamer Bolt steps in. Connect it to your Thunderbolt compliant notebook, and you are ready to capture footage or live stream video as needed. 

On the rear of the unit sits a single HDMI 2.0 connection, a USB 3.1 port and a Thunderbolt 3 connection. At this time the release date of the Live Gamer Bolt is unknown, though its price tag is estimated to be $499 (via Tom's Guide).

At 500e you must really benefit from streaming...... For one that is not a pro gamer or streamer or content creator then at this price point it is for the very few.Quote

$500 to spend on capturing video at a quality NO ONE will watch it at?

I have a Magewell Pro Capture Quad, and when I stream at 1080p60, less than 1% of watchers use that quality (according to YouTube metrics). Either, they watch on their phone at lower quality, or they don't have the bandwidth for 1080p60.Quote

Oh yes the good old "It doesn't apply to my situation thus this product is irrelevant."!

This is clearly meant for content capture, not live streaming. Nothing supports [email protected], BUT it does let you do some rad 4x slow mo edits from your 10 000$ rig PC gaming Epic Gamer footage.

External 4K 60fps, is amazing in a day an age where content creators can capture their own footage at E3 or private events.

Obviously, you will be able to livestream with this, at MOST, this will let you supersample your 4K to your viewers in 1080p, which is also a pretty nice feature by the way.

All of this is obviously granted that you have the laptop that can drive that encoding. I don't think content creator will start carrying PC towers and monitors at E3.Quote
