Press release: BENGALURU, India – September 22, 2020

AVerMedia Technologies, Inc., the preeminent name in digital multimedia technology, today announced the launch of GC555, Live Gamer BOLT. Live Gamer BOLT is the world’s first external video capture device to record 4K60 HDR10 and Full HD at 240 frames per second, featuring Thunderbolt 3 connectivity. The AverMedia Live Gamer Bolt GC555 has compact dimensions of 12.0 x 12.0 x 2.93 centimeters and weighs 348 grams. In addition to the streaming program RECentral-Streaming, AVerMedia also includes a serial key for the PowerDirector 15.

The Thunderbolt 3 port technology allows gamers to capture their gaming exploits from PC, PlayStation, or Xbox and transfer them to a connected laptop or desktop in 4K at 60 frames per second in HDR. With the BOLT’s ultra-low latency, award-winning aesthetics, impressive video capturing power, and RGB lighting effects, AVerMedia sets a new standard in the consumer video capture industry. With BOLT’s innovative video capturing capabilities, content creators will be able to record HDR10 content up to 4K resolution (3840 x 2160) at 60 frames per second. For hardcore PC gamers, the BOLT will be able to pass-through and record Full HD video at a whopping 240 frames per second. This gives PC gamers a more responsive gaming experience in addition to capturing epic slow-mo highlight footage. The BOLT holds fast to AVerMedia’s worldwide acclaimed ultra-low latency with a preview latency of less than 50ms. Due to Intel’s powerful and robust Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, the BOLT can deliver uncompressed video capture without compromise.

With a built-in video processing unit, the BOLT is capable of up-down video resolution scaling, frame rate conversion, and even HDR to SDR tone mapping on the fly without affecting CPU or GPU performance. Thanks to the BOLT’s small form factor and the ability to connect to an audio mixer through its 3.5mm Line-In, content creators can move their setup and cover LIVE events anywhere with ease, or bring studio-like video quality to their personal online content.
