Magewell Device Scoops Best Of Show Award

Magewell's new USB Fusion multi-input video capture and mixing device has been honored with a coveted Best of Show Award from Future plc's AV Technology at InfoComm 2022.

The new hardware and accompanying app let users easily combine camera and wired screenshare sources into attractive live presentations for online lectures, webinars, live streaming, video conferencing, and other applications.

Featuring two HDMI inputs and one USB webcam input, USB Fusion lets users switch between 1080p60 HD sources or combine two inputs (picture-in-picture or side-by-side) into one output and bring the result into popular software via its USB 3.0 interface. The device is compatible with Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems and offers easy, driver-free setup.

AV Technology's Best of Show winners were selected by a panel of nine anonymous AV/IT professionals who are experts in the technologies specific to the categories they were assigned to evaluate. Judges included CTS-certified technology managers, integrators, and consultants, who evaluated products from in-person exhibitors during the first two days of the InfoComm show. Products and solutions were evaluated for innovation, feature set, ease of installation/use, and potential overall value to the installation or institution.

"We pride ourselves in the integrity of our award programs [so] our nine judges cannot make themselves known to the companies whose products they are evaluating," said Cindy Davis, Content and Brand Director of AV Technology. "Congratulations to the R&D and product teams who have persevered during these unprecedented and challenging times."

USB Fusion provides three ways for users to compose and control their presentations. On-device buttons allow users to switch between full-screen sources or select a combined scene layout, while a browser-based web interface offers presentation management, scene switching, status monitoring, and device configuration. The full presentation power of USB Fusion is unlocked through the third control option, the free USB Fusion companion app for iOS and Android tablets. The intuitive app provides expanded layout controls and lets users add pictures, video clips, background music, and handwritten notes into their presentations. Users can also record or take screenshots of the combined output.

"With video conferencing, virtual events, and online lectures so pervasive today, it can be challenging to hold participants' attention," said Amy Zhou, Sales Director at Magewell. "Presenters are striving to make their sessions more engaging by combining multiple live inputs and media sources. USB Fusion lets users capture and combine inputs into compelling presentations with exceptional ease. We're thrilled the AV Technology judges have recognized these benefits with a Best of Show award."
