DL: Hi Louis. It seems that this new product from Diamond really offers a great solution for those who have a game console and want to take it to the next level.

LK: Yeah, the new Game-Caster GC2000 just launched this summer and we’re pretty excited about it. It really lets you be in total control of sharing your gaming experience with practically everybody in the known universe.

DL: Can you simply tell us how it works?

LK: Well basically, if you own an Xbox 360 or Xbox One, PlayStation 3 or 4 or Wii, you can capture and edit your game-play in HD 1080p all while you are playing. Then you can stream it to Twitch, YouTube, Facebook or Ustream.

DL: Wow, it’s such a great way to show off your strategy and create tutorials on games you’re really good at.

LK: Yeah it’s all about the audience. It brings the gamer closer to an audience and with streaming, it helps them to set up his or her own YouTube channel. Also, people want to learn how to play certain games, and the GC2000 is an excellent teaching tool for those of us who are the so-called experts.

DL: What are some of the features of the GC2000 that make it unique?

LK: I think one of the really important features is the Voice Commentary capability. It’s really crucial in making videos, that you voice-over what you are capturing and the GC2000 lets you do just that. Nararate your videos. Also the fact that you can save your work on an SD card is really cool. It’s part of what Diamond calls the Triple Play feature.

DL: Can you explain the Triple Play feature of the GC2000?

LK: In essence, the GC2000 does three things. First, it Captures and Edits your gaming directly to your PC, recording with the LOOP-THROUGH function. Second, it acts as a standalone unit that records and directly Saves to an SD card without a PC. And third, it Streams directly to Twitch, Ustream or even your smartphone or tablet.

DL: What does the LOOP-THROUGH function do and what is its purpose?

LK: LOOP-THROUGH simply means that the GC2000 lets you record and play at the same time.

DL: For the casual gamer like myself, how easy is it to hook up?

LK: It’s really easy. You just connect the audio, component and HDMI cables from your game console into one side of the GC2000. Then you connect your USB cable from your PC, connect another HDMI cable from the GC2000 to your TV and connect an Ethernet cable for your network.

DL: You know, I think one of the best things about this product is how interactive you can be with the online gaming community. You mentioned that you can use the GC2000 to connect and stream to Twitch, Ustream, YouTube and Facebook. Can you tell us a little more about how to do that?

LK: Once you’ve captured and edited your game-play from your game console and everything is good to go, you just upload your recorded file via your network with Ethernet.

DL: Is there any support for troubleshooting?

LK: Yes, the Diamond Multimedia U.S. customer support line is open Monday through Friday during normal business hours. You can call and ask any questions, they’re very knowledgeable.

The Diamond GameCaster HD 1080P Game Capture features Triple Play Game Capture Modes:

  • Capture/Edit including real-time “Voice Commentary”
  • Standalone – Record directly to a SD card without a PC
  • Streaming – Stream directly to Twitch, Ustream or your Smartphone/Tablet

With Gamers and gaming as the core of our company, we know their pain points and we wanted to provide our key consumers with a solution that provides them with an easy way to broadcast and share their game-play without disrupting the experience with lags and delays.

Traditional video capture devices do not support video pass-through and were only intended for users to convert VHS tapes to digital formats and DVD. Diamond’s GC2000 bridges that gap and allows today’s more sophisticated users to record, play and stream in real-time, an important feature for quick reflex games like first-person shooters. Diamond users can connect their game console directly to the GC2000, which is then connected to the TV via the Video-out port. The video is sent through the USB port to the PC, allowing the user to play the games on their big screen TV, resulting in no traditional lags or delays on the computer screen.

Pricing and Availability

The GC2000 is available at the Diamond Multimedia Online Store. The device retails at $149.99. The Diamond Multimedia GC2000 comes with a one year limited warranty, a Diamond guarantee of quality manufacturing and US-based customer support system.
