Hauppauge HD PVR: Record your Xbox 360 or PS3 game play on your PC in 1080i HD

Turn your PC or laptop into an HD recorder using Hauppauge HD PVR Gaming Edition. The hardware includes Arcsoft Total Media Extreme plus Arcsoft Media Convert Utility that lets you record your games in high definition very easily.

HD PVR’s video pass through gives zero delay on your TV monitor, and creates high definition video recordings at the same time! Video pass through uses the component video input and output to record your game play in HD while allowing you to play your games on your TV set. Also, you can record HD TV with H.264 compressed recording at 1080i.

So you can teach players from around the world and compare your level scores with other players to devise new strategies and demonstrate how to solve the most difficult situations.
