An easy way to use you computer as a monitor and record your FPV videos. Or just use it at home video from VHS, Video8, or Hi8 tapes to your Mac or PC. Or to transfer saved videos from your DVR to your iTunes or Windows Media Player library? The Elgato Video Capture records video from any analog video source including a VCR, set-top box, camcorder, DVD player, and more.
Turn Analog Into Digital
There is no easier or more convenient way to transfer home video to your computer. Elgato Video Capture records from analog video sources in the H.264 or MPEG-4 formats that are native to iTunes. Your video is captured in real-time and no lengthy re-encoding is necessary; the video is immediately ready to sync with an iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV, to play in QuickTime, to edit in iMovie, or to upload directly to YouTube.
Put Family Memories on Your Computer
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. The Elgato Video Capture provides an easy way to bring those precious memories into iTunes or your Windows Media Player library.
Every Step Is Made Simple
The Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analog 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.
