HDMI in to laptop


I’m a photographer/videographer and have a HDMI out of my camera that I am trying to get in to my laptop for monitoring an animation I’m making.

I’ve found a few laptops with HDMI in built in but they are pretty pricey, I found your product on Amazon and I was hoping the USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter might do this job?



Hi Adam,

Thanks for contacting Plugable. We appreciate your interest in our products. Unfortunately our USB3-HDMI-DVI adapter will not meet your needs. It is not an HDMI-capture device, which is what you are seeking. Our adapter is an output device that allows your computer to transmit video and audio from a USB port to an HDMI-based display.

I am sorry that I cannot recommend our product for your needs.

Best Regards,

Plugable Technologies
