Canopus Announces ADVC55 Analog-to-DV Converter for Windows and Mac OS-based Desktop and Notebook Systems

The ADVC55 supports NTSC, PAL, SECAM, S-Video and composite video formats and features the Canopus DV codec (January 07, 2004)
Canopus Corporation, makers of digital video production systems, today announced ADVC55, a compact and easy-to-use external analog-to-DV converter compatible with Windows and Mac OS-based computers. ADVC55 is an affordable conversion solution that easily connects VHS, Hi8 and other analog video equipment to DV cameras, decks and editing systems.

ADVC55 does not require software drivers and provides automatic input signal detection and convenient front and rear connectors to ensure easy setup and operation, making it a convenient solution for capturing analog video using FireWire-equipped notebook and desktop editing systems. Desktop and notebook systems equipped with 6-pin FireWire ports are able to supply power to the ADVC55 through the FireWire cable and will not require an external power supply. (Systems equipped with 4-pin FireWire ports will require an optional power supply.)

In addition to supporting all popular DV and analog video equipment, ADVC55 is compatible with leading editing and DVD authoring applications, including Canopus EDIUS, Canopus Let's EDIT, Final Cut Pro, Avid Xpress DV, Adobe Premiere Pro, Vegas, Pinnacle Edition, Ulead MediaStudio Pro, and Windows Movie Maker. This broad video equipment and software support ensures maximum compatibility for almost any DV editing workflow.


"ADVC55, like our popular ADVC100, addresses the issues that other converters neglect - video quality and convenient connections," said Robert Sharp, general manager of Canopus Corporation. "Add affordability and the ADVC55 is an easy choice for video professionals and enthusiasts who need to bring analog video content into the DV domain."

To deliver the highest quality video preservation during analog-to-DV conversion, the ADVC55 features Canopus's proven DV hardware codec technology that is found in the full line of Canopus DV capture cards and Advanced Digital Video Converters.

The ADVC55 will be available mid-January from Canopus and its authorized resellers for a suggested retail price of $229.
