Elgato Gaming have announced the release date for their new 4K60 Pro capture card.

Elgato have confirmed that the 4K60 Pro will be available from November 21, 2017.

Originally teased at Gamescom 2017, the card – which Elgato say is the world’s first consumer-ready 4K capture card – is compatible with the PlayStation 4 Pro, Xbox One X, and PC. It can also record from any other unencrypted HDMI source that you may have at your disposal.

The card comes with Elgato’s custom-built software, allowing content creators to record and export raw 4K footage to their favourite video editing application.

Julian Fest, general manager of Elgato Gaming, said in a press statement:

“4K content is here to stay and demand is booming. Content creators shouldn’t be limited by the constraints of their capture hardware. The 4K60 Pro gives creators the tools they need to stay ahead of the curve and give their audiences nothing less than the best.”
