Turn analog video into iTunes-ready files.
There is no easier or more convenient way to transfer home video to your Mac/PC from a VCR, DVR, camcorder, or any other analogue video device as a high quality H.264 file. 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, iPad, iPhone, or Apple TV, to play in QuickTime, to edit in iMovie, or to upload directly to YouTube.
Put family memories on your Mac/PC.
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, to edit them in iMovie, and to share on the Web.
Video to your Mac/PC from a DVR, DVD player, or set-top box
Perhaps you've been given a DVD from a family event or reunion and you want to share it by posting it on your website or on YouTube. Or you've saved some great movies and TV shows on your DVR and want to play them back on your iPod. Elgato Video Capture can connect and capture video to your Mac/PC from any device that has composite "RCA" or S-Video outputs. It also comes with a SCART adapter.
