Magewell's HDMIMAGE is Kingdom's recommended external HDMI capture device for our live video streaming service. 

It has been extensively tested, and found to be the very best option in its category.  The combination of three key features make the HDMIMAGE unique: it is completely Plug'n'Play; it works in Windows, Mac OS, and Linux; and it processes the audio and video internally so your computer's CPU isn't bogged down with the extra work.

The HDMIMAGE accepts standard 1080/60P high definition signal and can scale that video to resolutions from 640x480 to 1920x1200 at variable frame rates.  This gives you an amazing amount of control over what kind of video you are recording or streaming.  Most churches need to scale their high definition video down to lower resolution before they stream live.  The HDMIMAGE is the exact tool for that job.  

The HDMIMAGE is designed to work via your computer's USB 3.0 port, however, it will work through a USB 2.0 in a pinch.  You will experience severely diminished performance through USB 2.0, but if you scale the video down to the minimum, it will work.
