NVIDIA users packing a GTX 600 or GTX 700 series graphics card can now directly stream their games on Twitch thanks to a recent update to the GeForce Experience companion app.
The GeForce Experience 1.8.1 update can now stream directly to Twitch with minimal impact on performance thanks to the built-in H.264 hardware encoder on the graphics cards. This negates the need to use expensive capture cards and have a separate hardware infrastructure to record gameplay. ShadowPlay can also overlay webcam video and audio from a headset or a microphone.
“Broadcasting to Twitch has become an integral part of the gaming experience,” said Brooke Van Dusen, Direct of Business Development, Twitch. “We’re extremely excited to work with NVIDIA to make Twitch live streaming available to GeForce Experience users. ShadowPlay is revolutionary, providing high quality streams with almost no noticeable performance impact for our users.”
