Suggestions for good quality capture card and s/w : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread


Can anyone please suggest a good quality capture card and MPEG 1 software for under #200 english pounds each. I am looking for result close to VHS. This is for a staff training Video CD so broadcast quality is not necessary.

Your suggestions and reasons will be most appreciated.

You should mention your source: VHS VCR, Hi8, S-Video, DV etc. as that can affect suggestions. Recommendations are difficult to make but the best I can do is advise you check out this site:

You'll find some interesting comparisons though the English is a bit dodgy times. As for software, check out:

I use a Matrox G200 combination graphics and M-JPEG video card and I'm very happy with it.

Good luck!
