NANJING, China—Magewell has announced expanded support for Macs with the launch of a new Software Development Kit for its PCI Express capture cards and plug-and-play, external capture devices.

The SDK provides APIs based on the macOS AVFoundation framework for Magewell’s USB Capture Gen 2, USB Capture Plus and Pro Capture.

Magewell has made the new SDK for macOS and OS X available as a free download on
