The name Raxio may not be synonymous with gaming. You might hear Roxio and think about burring CDs or DVDs. However, Roxio is ready to change all that with two new video recording options for gamers with Roxio Game Capture and Roxio PC Game Capture.
One of the biggest problems for any gamer is trying to play a game and then show off their skills to the word. Sure we now have trophies and achievements but if you really want to demonstrate your gaming ability you need video. In the past these options have been fairly limited but with the new Roxio Game Capture, you’ll be open to a new world of gaming videos.
For console gamers, you can pick up the Roxio Game Capture for $99.99, a hardware and software solution for gamers looking to show off their favorite moments on the Xbox 360 and PS3. For PC users, you might think that Fraps is the only game in town but not anymore. With the Roxio PC Game Capture for $49.99 not only do you get the software needed to capture all your gaming experiences but you also get a robust video editor which could stand alone as at this low price point.

New Roxio Game Capture Products from Rovi Let You Share Your A-Game
Make it Easy to Record, Personalize, and Post Console and PC Game Play Videos
Santa Clara, Calif., March 15, 2011 – Rovi Corporation (NASDAQ: ROVI) today unveiled Roxio® Game Capture and Roxio PC Game Capture, two affordably priced products that offer a straightforward way for gamers to quickly and easily capture and share PC and console game play videos.
In-product tutorials ensure everyone can get set up quickly and immediately begin to capture and showcase their latest campaigns, adventures, ball skills, and race sequences. Gamers may use the products to post their high scores, tips & tricks, game reviews, or even a feature-length movie, or Machinima, based on game play footage.

“While some gamers are already creating and posting game play videos, we believe there are many more waiting on the sidelines for solutions that deliver the right mix of ease-of-use and features at a good price point,” Corey Ferengul, EVP Products at Rovi Corporation. “Roxio Game Capture products are these solutions, making it easy for everyone to capture, edit, post, and boast about their latest gaming accomplishments. After all, setting a track record in GT5 or wreaking havoc in Call of Duty is pretty satisfying in itself, but it is far more fun to discover how your game play stacks up against the best of the Internet.”
Rovi offers two unique products that enable both console and PC gamers to capture, edit, and share game play videos:
For Console Gamers:
Roxio Game Capture is a hardware and software combination for recording and sharing console game play and is priced at $99.99.
· Roxio Game Capture enables the real-time capture of game play videos from Xbox® 360 and PS3® consoles. Users may play games in full HD on the TV, while recording the content to the PC. The quick-to-set up USB hardware capture device includes component video and stereo audio inputs, and ships with a component, RCA audio, and USB cables*. Users can record game play in 480p and output to AVI, WMV, DivX, and MP4. Still image screen shots can be saved as JPG, PNG, TIFF, BMP or GIF file types.
For PC Gamers:
Roxio PC Game Capture is a complete software solution for quickly recording and posting PC game play and is priced at $49.99.
· Roxio PC Game Capture allows users to record PC game play footage in real-time. Video sequences and still images can be captured in HD at full screen resolutions. The application supports DirectX® 8-10 and OpenGL based PC games. Compared with other offerings, Roxio PC Game Capture not only provides a more complete solution (including features for capturing, editing, and posting in one package), but also enables gamers to spend less time managing and posting files and more time playing.
Both Roxio Game Capture and Roxio PC Game Capture ship with an uncomplicated, yet full-featured video editor that lets users turn raw game play footage into an engaging video complete with transitions, commentary, background music tracks, and titles. Gamers can also tap advanced features including a 32-track timeline editor featuring picture-in-picture, animated credits, and special effects capabilities to further personalize their productions. The products include simple upload features for directly posting completed videos to major online communities including Facebook®, WeGame, and YouTube™, including popular game play sharing channels such as http://www.youtube.com/user/machinima.
