  • It's a hardware capture/encoder device tied to its application. It is very good at what it does but keep in mind the signal types its designed to work with, composite, s-video, component. There is no firewire input, so if you want to capture/encode you'll need to adapt the DV signal somehow, or get the camera to output something the device can capture. The same company that makes this makes other capture devices that work with other signal types.
