Marshall Electronics is meeting the increased global demand for remote streaming and collaboration by enhancing the 3GSDI/HDMI to USB 3.0 converter product category. The VAC-23SHU3 USB 3.0 adapter enables any HDMI or 3G/HD-SDI video and audio source to be ingested into a computer for live streaming, video conference, collaboration, video production, and recording. These converters are simple to use and offer a plug-and-play setup that seamlessly integrates professional video sources to the user’s choice of PC-based soft codecs and applications.
“The industries that we service are adapting to a new normal,” says Tod Musgrave, Director of Cameras at Marshall Electronics. “The VAC-23SHU3 converters couldn’t be easier to setup; they become fully functional within seconds of connection. Essentially, you plug your camera into this adapter, then plug it into your computer via USB, and the computer immediately recognizes the capture device.”
Users can select either an HDMI or 3G/HD-SDI video source with the flip of a switch. Active HDMI/3G-SDI (BNC) loop-through outputs keep sources available for other purposes, such as feeding monitors, switchers, recorders, etc. UVC protocol support allows the application to control the video format, resolution, frame rates, and other settings independent of the original source format.
The VAC-23SHU3 features a rugged and compact design for enhanced portability with power provided through the USB 3.0 output. Powered by the USB port on the host computer, there are no power adapters, which is especially helpful for mobile applications.
