Avermedia Game Broadcaster HD Linux Driver


The Kernel Labs Linux Driver for the AVerMedia Game Broadcaster HD (Model C127) allows for the deployment of the raw HD video capture in desktop, server, or datacenters.

Because of it’s support for a variety of video interface types, PCIe formfactor, and ability to perform raw video capture, it is well suited for environments where the video will be captured, processed (scaling, overlay injection), and rendered but not stored (e.g. digital signage).
