For Pro Gamers

ShadowCast 2 Pro is our fastest and most powerful USB video capture device developed for the latest consoles and beyond. Play, record, and stream high-fidelity content for audiences across all platforms without compromises. This was designed for pro gamers, influencers, and videographers who want to take their current videos to the next level.

Next Level Capturing

While many other higher tier capture cards like to promote 4K60 support, the truth is they only support 4K60 input; the ShadowCast 2 Pro sits in a league of its own supporting 4K60 input AND output. This means you can not only play in 4K60, but also record and stream content at full 4K resolution at 60 frames per second so your gameplay will look buttery smooth.

Up to 240Hz!

For an enhanced gaming experience, our device can increase the frame rate to 144 fps at 2K/1440p resolution, perfect for viewing on an iPad Pro. It can even reach an impressive 240Hz at 1080p, ideal for smooth slow-motion replays. To compare, the new iPhone 15 operates at 60Hz, while the iPhone 15 Pro's "ProMotion" display is at 120Hz. This means your gaming visuals will remain top-notch, even with future releases like the anticipated iPhone 18 "ProMotion Ultra" and beyond.

Direct HDMI Passthrough

Due to popular demand from our amazing ShadowCast community, we've included an extra HDMI port for zero latency passthrough in the ShadowCast 2 Pro. While this feature was impractical in the smaller, thumb-sized original device, the larger ShadowCast 2 Pro can accommodate it. This addition lets users game on their TV without interruption, while simultaneously managing their stream—like interacting with live viewers, positioning their webcam, and adding logos or other fun elements. The passthrough feature ensures serious gaming with zero latency and no distractions.

Connect Everything Everywhere

The ShadowCast 2 Pro acts as a versatile connector for your favorite devices, designed for easy plug-and-play setup.

On the back, starting from the left, there's a USB-C port for "Capture Output." Use the included USB-C 3.2 cable to connect it to your computer (Windows, Mac, Linux, desktop, laptop) or tablet (iPad, Android). Next is an HDMI passthrough port, where you can connect an HDMI TV, monitor, or projector for optional viewing, using the provided HDMI cable. The third HDMI port is for connecting your gaming console—compatible with PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S/X, Nintendo Switch/Wii/WiiU, portable console docks, various retro consoles, and even digital cameras with HDMI output. Additionally, there are optional 3.5mm audio jacks for headphone monitoring, capturing game controller audio like party chats, and connecting an external microphone.

It just works

Works perfectly. Great to play games on the Steam Deck on my MacBook's own screen via OBS fullscreen projector or with my external ASUS monitor. I use it both for streaming and playing on my own. No complaints. Everything you need is here for it to just work.

Great to use 4K in OBS if done right.

At first, I had the wrong ShadowCast 2 capture card that I had to return it back to Human Things (after contacting the support) and I waited until last week to get my ShadowCast 2 Pro. After receiving it, I've hooked it up, tested it, and to my surprise, it actually works with OBS Studio. Now the only trouble I did have with this was getting the ShadowCast 2 Pro to have the 4K60 preview to be synchronized with my display, but it turned out I had the "Custom" resolution setting turned on (that was for my Razer Ripsaw HD Game Capture device), and viola, it actually synced the 4K60 preview with the display!

IF you were looking forward to recording or streaming in 4K60 with OBS, or even trying something out with Moonlight Streaming for consoles, then make sure you turn "Custom" Resolution off and switch it to Device Default for the preview to be good enough.

Truly impressive

I've been using an elgato 4k60 pro2 and saw great reviews of this from fellow content creators.

It is now the only device I use for recording. If genki haven't released a new version by the time my channel expands I will be ordering another.
