Format Setting

Set the capture resolution, frame rate and color space that the USB Capture device can support. If the capture format is different with the input format, the FPGA in the capture device will automatically do up/down scaling, causing 0 CPU usage. This function is especially useful when scaling by software causes much CPU burden.

Firmware Update

When Internet access is available, Utility V3 automatically checks the firmware version of the capture device and the latest version on the Magewell server. When a higher version is available, Utility V3 will remind users of the update. Users can check the release notes and decide whether they need to update the firmware or not depending on their needs.
