Hello everyone!

I need some guidance regarding capturing game from multiple PCs.

I have 6 computers running a pretty graphic intensive game, and I need to capture the game from all 6 of those into my vMix machine. I would greatly appreciate if you could point me to some different options (products) that I can buy to capture these desktops.

Some of what I have already researched:

1) Elgato Game Capture HD60S+
While I have used these before - based on research I've done - it is to my understanding that I could not connect 6 of those into my vMix machine.

2) NDI
I do have Gigabit ethernet in my office, however last time I tested vMix desktop capture I had a lot of problems with it dropping a lot of frames. It was a pretty big project with many inputs, so I believe it also had to do with my GPU not being powerful enough (RTX 2070 Super). I am soon upgrading to a RTX 3090, however I would prefer not to capture through network.

I don't have a specific budget for this, I would simply like to know what are the different options out there to make this happen.

Thanks a lot in advance.

cheers!
