The Sony PlayStation 5 (PS5) will be released in select markets starting on November 12, 2020.
We're excited to confirm that your Elgato game capture device supports PlayStation 5 capture!
Will I be able to capture PlayStation 5 on day one?
Yes, regardless of which Elgato capture device you own, you'll be able to capture your PlayStation 5 gameplay on day one. PlayStation 5 features a HDCP toggle exactly like the PlayStation 4. Once HDCP is disabled capture will work.
Which capture devices support capturing PlayStation 5
All current Elgato capture devices support capturing video from PlayStation 5.
Note that supported resolution and refresh rate combinations depend on the capture device. For example, HD60 S will be able to passthrough and capture a maximum of 1080p60 from PlayStation 5, while 4K60 Pro MK.2 can passthrough and capture up to 4K60 HDR.
Can I capture 4K60 HDR from PlayStation 5?
Yes, with 4K60 Pro MK.2 and 4K60 S+, full 4K60 HDR capture is supported.
Can I capture 1440p120 from PlayStation 5?
The PlayStation 5 does not support 1440p output.
Will I need an HDMI 2.1 compatible capture device to capture gameplay from PlayStation 5?
No! HDMI is backwards compatible, meaning PlayStation 5 can output video to devices that do not feature HDMI 2.1.
Will Elgato release a HDMI 2.1 capture card for 4K120 HDR passthrough and capture?
We’re aware of next-generation console capabilities and we’re always working to provide best-in-class capture solutions — no matter what resolution or frame rate you play at.
