Would you consider an iPad app?

Excellent product. I've dumped my $100+ USB to HDMI capture device to the storage box. But would you consider developing an app for the iPad/iPad Pro, given the chips of the iPads are so powerful and that they use USB-C as well?

Great device, but latency isn't ideal for games that need quick reaction times.

I use this device to output my switch to my PC and it does work great for the price, but the only thing that I can't stand is the latency. I mainly play FPS and other games that require a quick reaction time like Borderlands, Smash and a couple of other games. I can stand playing in 1080p as I keep it a small window on my desktop and tested it on both OBS and their dedicated GENKI ARCADE app. Truthfully, the Arcade app has a little more latency than OBS. Working on the app a little more to match it with OBS would be great.

Does the job on a budget

If you're on a lower budget but have a few bucks to spend to expand your streaming lineup to console games, this is a decent enough thing to use. It doesn't really do 1080p60 and there's a very slight but potentially noticeable output delay that could end up causing issues for certain fast-paced games (I do tend to feel a slight disconnect playing Tetris 99, for instance), but for most people, it shouldn't be something that's absolutely intolerable.

Awsome to stream and record gameplay with.

As a wannabe streamer who simply uses his Xbox to stream, it’s sad that I can’t stream from my Xbox with my switch. With genki, not only can I stream in Awesome quality but I can record videos for VODS. Perfect to record gameplay for a team in stuff like Pokémon Unite and Arena of valor. The perfect and cheap graphic card for those looking to get their start on streaming!

Exactly what I wanted!

I wanted a product that I could use to be able to play my Switch on my PC, so that I didn’t need to have a separate monitor. This works great! I don’t feel any latency. The resolution isn’t perfect but who needs that if I’m playing Nintendo 64 games on Nintendo Switch Online.
