Introducing HD60 S. Stream and Record in 1080p60. Instantly.
Greetings Content Creators,
Let's rewind a few months to September 2015. Following the launch of HD60 Pro, we received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback about Instant Gameview. Feeding your stream with low latency technology made getting set up easier than ever. However, with HD60 Pro being a PCIe device, this feature was only accessible to a subset of users - those with a Windows Desktop PC. From today onwards that will no longer be the case. HD60 S is the next evolution of the hugely popular HD60. It retains core features you know and love - stunning 1080p60 Quality, Flashback Recording, Live Commentary - all while adding Instant Gameview to an external capturing solution.
How It Works
HD60 S is setup in the same way as HD60. On the left hand side you will find Analog Audio In, HDMI In and USB ports. On the right hand side you will find a HDMI Out port. The real difference is that the USB port is now a USB 3.0 Type-C connection. USB Type-C is the very latest in mainstream USB technology with a reversible connector.
A huge benefit of USB 3.0 is that your gameplay can be passed to your computer and appear in your preview window instantaneously. We call this Instant Gameview and you can check it out in action right here
HD60 S works with any Windows Laptop or Desktop that has a USB 3.0 port and meets our minimum system requirements.
If you're a Mac user, HD60 S support is just a few weeks away. Now you're probably saying "Yea right, you haven't updated your Mac software for ages". Rest assured that behind the scenes we have significantly expanded our Mac development team and are working very hard on a lot of awesome updates, HD60 S support being one of them.
Early Access Program
With the launch of HD60 S we are also very excited to announce Elgato Early Access. If you want to have a chance to own 1 of 200 exclusive "Day 0" edition HD60 S units then make sure you read our dedicated blog post!

HD60 S is designed with streaming in mind; rendering gameplay with a webcam, overlays, webpages and everything else takes a lot of processing power. As such, we have increased the recommended system requirements compared to HD60. To take full advantage of Game Capture software and HD60 S hardware we recommend users to have the following;
- Intel Core i5 (4th gen)
- 4GB RAM
- Windows 10 (64-bit)
- OSX 10.11.4
- 1x USB 3.0 port
- Internet connection
- Intel HD or Nvidia GeForce GTX 600 series (or better)
