Genki Shadowcast

Genki Shadowcast review. Seems to work pretty well, but it's also good value for money.

I used to fund Genki Covert Dock. This friend has some minor flaws, but it's still pretty good these days. And I looked for more stuff from this company, and this friend I'm going to introduce to you is the newest of the company's products. Genki Shadowcast . I funded it on Kickstarter, but not long after I funded it, Wadiz also funded it... Official website Kickstarter page Wadiz page

Genki Shadowcast

Genki Shadowcast is simple to use but powerful.

Genki Shadowcast has a simple but nice feature. Just connect this friend to your Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 5 and then connect it to your computer and you can play on your computer screen. Of course, this is not the same as playing on a monitor via simple HDMI. This friend is a kind of miniature capture board. Its main purpose is to use it with Nintendo Switch or PlayStation 5, but like a capture board, it is also possible to use it as a kind of webcam by connecting a DLSR, etc. And I talked about Nintendo Switch and PS5 mostly, but looking at the official website, you can play on Xbox and old consoles as well.

I've been playing with Zelda a bit as a test, and it doesn't really bad affect the gameplay. It is pretty good If I really test it properly, I will have to try various things, such as Zelda, racing games like Mario Kart, games that don't tolerate even the slightest delay like Tekken, etc... But I already feel so satisfied with it

I also wanted to test it on the PS5, but... The PS5 is quite large, so it's a bit difficult to put it on my computer desk...

Genki Shadowcast is very good value for money.

Its performance is excellent, of course, but the biggest advantage of Genki Shadowcast is its cost-effectiveness personally. Compared to the capture board Elgato HD60 S+ that I reviewed before, which costs over $150, this friend costs $49.99 based on the official website. I funded it for $39 on Kickstarter. The price is quite cheap. My Elgato capture board has a better function itself, but I bought an expensive friend on purpose because I was nervous about low-cost capture board, but I was very surprised that this shadowcast is very cheap but has outstanding performance. Small size is a bonus good feature

It's a little different from the cost performance, but to use Genki Shadowcast, you need to use a dedicated program to display the screen on your computer. The software has the little capacity, but what's especially good is that it can run in a web version through Chrome. However, when I did it, it didn't work out well. Maybe it was my fault, so I just used the software. It's not an installation method, it's just an executable file. It's not an important story, but there are some people who are sensitive to installing even one piece of software, so I mentioned it a bit.

It will be good to use as a capture board.

There seem to be two main purposes of using the capture board. The first is for Internet broadcasting such as YouTube or Twitch, and the second is for playing Nintendo Switch or PS5 on a computer. Because it is not common these days to buy a TV separately unless you have a home or not. To be honest, I've only done internet broadcasting a few times as a test, so I haven't tried broadcasting with Shadowcast yet... I don't know how good it will be for broadcasting. Of course, the developers say there is no problem.

Since the price is on the low side, it is a good capture board that is not at all difficult to use for personal enjoyment. It is said that there is no problem in using it with the Genki Covert Dock, which was briefly discussed at the beginning of this article. I really like the fact that when you use the two together, you can play a Nintendo Switch without taking up very much space.

Genki Shadowcast conclusion

Good point

  1. Very cost-effective
  2. Easy to use as simple as configuration
