Need an easy way to transfer home video from VHS, Video8, or Hi8 tapes to your Mac or PC? Or to transfer saved movies and TV shows from your DVR to your iTunes or Windows Media Player library? Elgato Video Capture records video from any analogue video source including a VCR, set-top box, camcorder, DVD player, and more.
There is no easier or more convenient way to transfer home video to your computer. Elgato Video Capture captures your analogue video in the universal H.264 format and sends it to your iTunes or Windows Media Player library. No lengthy re-encoding is required, so your video is immediately ready to playback on your computer; to sync with your iPad or iPhone; to upload to YouTube; and to edit in iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker.
The era of VHS tapes is winding down, and after three decades there is a lot of video content to transfer for modern playback devices. What’s more, any video stored on magnetic tape (such as VHS, Video8 and Hi8) has a limited life span and deteriorates over time. Elgato Video Capture provides an easy way to bring those precious memories into iTunes or your Windows Media Player library.
Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analogue video device to capturing video and choosing how you will watch and share it. The software offers a simple tool to trim the beginning and end of the captured video. With just one click, you can add your video to iTunes or to your Windows Media Player library; you can play back the video on your computer or sync it with your iPad or iPhone; you can upload your video directly to YouTube; and you can edit it right away in iMovie or Windows Live Movie Maker.
Elgato Video Capture features composite and S-Video inputs and comes with a composite video/RCA stereo cable and SCART adapter. It handles standard definition NTSC, SECAM, PAL and PAL/60 video for all regions.
