Compatible Graphics Cards for Live Video Capture for Windows

Live video capture is extremely computer-intensive. If you are planning to film a live event with Nacsport, you will need an NVIDIA graphics card which contains the NVENC video encoder feature. Not to get too technical, but this is a special encoder which offloads direct video capture from your computer's CPU and moves it a dedicated part of the GPU.

 

The good news is that this feature is available in most modern day NVIDIA graphics cards, but you should check, especially if you are planning to buy a new computer.

 

Published here is a list of compatible NVIDIA graphics cards, a list of known non-compatible cards, and a guide to finding out which graphics card your computer currently has.

 

If your graphics card is not mentioned in either of these lists, please get in touch with our support team, who will be happy to advise you.
