The new USB Fusion from Magewell is a multi-input video capture and switching device which lets users combine camera and wired screenshare sources into live presentations for use in applications such as online lectures, live streaming and news reporting.
Featuring two HDMI inputs and one USB webcam input, the device 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.

Users can switch between full-screen sources or select a combined scene layout, while a browser-based web interface offers scene switching, volume adjustments, presentation management, and device configuration.
The free USB Fusion companion app for iOS and Android tablets provides expanded layout controls and lets users add pictures, video clips, background music, and handwritten notes to their presentations.
According to Magewell, presenters can set up playlists incorporating live video and other media in advance, and record or take screenshots of the combined output onto the hardware’s built-in storage.
An HDMI output can loop through an input signal or send the combined scene to a connected display or projector, while an analogue audio input lets presenters augment the sources’ embedded audio with narration or music.
