The Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket Gets Twitch
Hauppauge updates its video gaming application to support streaming to Twitch, Ustream and YouTube
HAUPPAUGE, N.Y., June 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Hauppauge Digital, Inc., the leading developer and manufacturer of gaming video recorders, announced today their latest update of Hauppauge Capture application adds widely anticipated direct Internet streaming support for the HD PVR Rocket. Video streaming services such as Twitch, YouTube and Ustream are now supported for Rocket users.
The Hauppauge HD PVR Rocket has been highly praised since its launch in November 2013 for superb quality 1080p recording directly to a USB storage device or PC. Hauppauge’s software update adds an entirely new level of functionality to the Rocket, an update which is free of charge to all Rocket users.
Compatible with all gaming consoles and PCs, the HD PVR Rocket is now capable of streaming directly to Twitch, Ustream and YouTube via the extremely easy to use Hauppauge Capture application for Windows. In Hauppauge Capture, a Rocket user can simply select the StreamEez tab, choose their streaming service, login and start streaming within minutes.
The HD PVR Rocket is one of few devices in the market that internally handles the data intensive encoding for streaming, using its built-in dedicated encoding processor, rather than relying on a high-spec CPU for the same task. This is a huge advantage for video gamers who want to stream their game play at the best video quality on any PC system.
