“Magewell’s SDK has allowed us to implement the low-latency integration within just a couple of days,” — says Andrey Okunev, Medialooks CEO. “We were also impressed by the overall quality of the boards and the fact that there are cards with rare configurations such as 4 HDMI inputs.”

In addition, the SDK is very stable and provides essential features, such as encoding and decoding. The SDK supports various protocols and codecs.
