Compared to Magewell’s original USB dongles with just an HDMI or SDI input, the USB Capture HDMI Plus and SDI Plus have an input interface as well as a loop through one, which enables monitoring the image while streaming and/or recording. In addition, the new dongles have different audio input and output functions. A 3.5mm audio interface allows for capture of analog audio from a separate audio device (not embedded in HDMI input). An analogue microphone input is available for live narration during capture. This eliminates the need for an additional audio capture device. The 3.5mm headphones interface allows for playback of audio (either extracted from the embedded HDMI audio or from the analog audio input).
