ADS Technologies Ships USB Analog Video Capture DeviceUSB Instant Video Enables Users to Capture, Edit and Share Video From Analog Source (July 24, 2001)
USB Instant Video is an external analog video capture device that enables users to transfer analog video from a camcorder or VHS tape to their PC. Once the video is captured in a digital format to their computer, users can edit, add special effects, and then share their home movies on CD or over the Internet via video mail or streaming video.
For less than $70, users can give their old home movies on VHS tape new life with USB Instant Video and included video editing software, Interactive's MovieWorks LE for the Mac platform and Ulead's VideoStudio 5.0 for the PC. With the USB interface, users also can use their analog camcorders as live Web cams for videoconferencing over the Internet.
"We developed USB Instant Video to meet the demands of some 40 million analog camcorder owners who need an easy and simple way to edit and share their home movies," said Mike McCoy, president of ADS Technologies Inc. "Earlier generation USB capture devices produced inferior results with grainy video at 320x240 resolution and sound that was out of sync. USB Instant Video delivers outstanding audio and smooth video quality at up to 640x480 resolution."
