Dazzle has announced a new piece of hardware for the Mac, Hollywood DV-Bridge. The new system is designed to let users work in analog and DV mode simultaneously, allowing them to convert VHS tapes into DV format. Users can also convert their DV video to analog. The DV-Bridge hardware plugs into the FireWire port of any G3 or G4 desktop or PowerBook to bring in composite video, S-video, FireWire and stereo audio, converting analog signals into DV for editing in NLEs that support the DV format.
The product includes the Hollywood DV-Bridge hardware, a 6' FireWire cable and hardware manual. It requires a G3 or G4 running at 300 MHz or higher, MacOS 9.04, 64 MB RAM, 800 x 600 pixel resolution and a built-in FireWire port. It will sell for $299 when it ships in December.
