Make no mistake, this is not just for gamers

When I first heard about this on Kickstarter, I understood why it was pitched toward gaming devices. But, as a computer technician, I saw the simplest solution of turning your web browser into a monitor for a headless device, such as a server or a laptop with a busted screen.

Since it's USB-C and supports the UVC camera protocol, it works swimmingly on Android devices, essentially turning them into a spare monitor when needed. While I hoped that Genki could provide a native Android app, I was able to find a decent third-party app to access the Shadowcast as a UVC camera.

Lastly, since it comes up as a camera, I could easily select the Shadowcast as a camera source in Zoom, effectively showing people in the meeting exactly what I need them to see.

Brilliant little device, and one of the few super-successful crowdfunding campaigns I was proud to be a part of.

Simple straightforward and fun.

Three words to describe this device for me goes as follows: Simple, Straight-forward, and fun. I love the packaging for this device. It's very nice on the box, and came with stickers and I love the ninja with the, "Don't forget the cable." tagline. That is super cute and a nice reminder to use the included cable if you have a USB-C device such as a Macbook. Plugging this into my switch and then plugging the cable in took me about 30 seconds to do and then I downloaded the software off the website and in about 5 minutes had my OBS and audio up and running with the resolution mode going cause I'm playing BotW and don't need the 60FPS rather have the 1080p resolution over the 720p mode. This works wonderfully both on windows and macOs and for the price is well worth the 5 stars. I'll be using this shadowcast cause I like the minimal setup. I don't have a dedicated capture device internally and the external one takes up desk space and doesn't look that clean, this is a lot better and works just as well. I play mostly Nintendo games and so this serves it's purpose for me perfectly. However if you are needing it to do more I'd recommend doing research into higher resolution capture with this to see if it suits your needs but I'd definitely recommend it for playing like animal crossing, botw, and other fantastic Nintendo games :)

Great for I.T. techs

My job sent me a Desktop PC for testing bare metal installs since in the current situation many of us work from home now. The last thing I wanted was a monitor cluttering my room (I exclusively work off laptops now). Then I remembered I had a Shadowcast for my gaming. Hooked up the box to it and my work laptop. Now I can test all the automated installs PLUS record the video for my work demos. Love this solution! And the price is so affordable I can just keep a spare on stand-by.
