Elgato Video Capture Puts Analog Video on Your Mac

Elgato announced the release of Elgato Video Capture on Friday, a device that allows users to transfer analog video - including home movies on VHS tape - to a Mac. Videos can then be uploaded to the iPhone or iPod Touch.

Elgato Video Capture connects VCRs, set top boxes, camcorders, DVD players, and other analog video sources to the Mac via USB 2.0. The included software records video in the H.264 or MPEG-4 formats that are native to iTunes.

Elgato Video Capture supports NTSC, PAL, PAL/60 and SECAM input video standards and records video at resolutions up to 640 x 480 pixels, in either H.264 or MPEG-4 formats. Users can choose between 16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratios and trim the beginning and end of recordings.

Elgato Video Capture can be purchased at the Elgato Online Store for US$99.95.
