1080p60 Uncompressed Video

LGHD2 is built for speed and quality. By capturing uncompressed videos, LGHD2 simplifies your PC operations and delivers smoother and sharper 1080p60 streaming.

Flexible Audio Connection

Having more audio options is always a plus when it comes to capturing. Connect digitally via HDMI or analog via 3.5 mm ports, you can record audio from consoles, PCs, or even output to mixers for audio mixing—the flexibility is yours.

Compressed Video Output.

Compressed Video Output

Besides uncompressed videos, LGHD2 also delivers compressed videos that require less transmission bandwidth, so you can use multiple LGHD2s* to capture different sources at the same time.
*Multi-card-support software is required

Get to Know the Design.
LGHD2's unique triangle mesh design represents gamers' spirit.

Get to Know the Design

If there’s a geometric shape that can represent gamers, it would be a triangle—a combination of vitality (a circle) and stability (a square) which outlines gamers’ charactistics. And based on this key element, we created a triangle metal mesh. Aside from its premium built quality and stylish design, it also provides excellent protection, ventilation, and allows the LED lighting to shine through.

LGHD2 Brilliant Package.
Elegant and high quality.

Packaging

The same design is beautifully presented on LGHD2’s packaging. Engraved and cut by high precision laser, the triangle mesh looks just as astonishing on paper sleeve as on metal sheet. The design of the inner box is also carefully thought through. Its pattern and silvery blue finishing mimics the LED lighting as you slowly pull it out of the sleeve. It's a one-of-a-kind unboxing experience.
