The Analog Bridge
For most of us over the age of 20, memories of VCR recording are still stuck in the back of our brains. Over the years, we've all found some embarrassing childhood memories under a couch on some dusty videotape. The birthday with that invincible piata. The trip to the theme park when your brother fell off the ferris wheel. The soccer games where your brother would beat up the ref. We could go on, but two things are certain: the death of VHS is imminent, and some of those tapes are worth saving!
Comprised of a USB converter and Movies on DVD 7 burning software, Rescue Your Videotapes! made it very easy to transfer any analog or digital video source to PC. The USB converter looks like a Flash drive with four cables attached (S-Video and A/V composite). The analog-to-digital video capture device turns on when you plug it into the USB socket. Movies on DVD 7 provides additional editing and DVD support after capturing the analog footage.
Time to Put It Together
After we installed Movies on DVD 7, the first thing that stood out was how easy it actually was to capture. We took some old VHS tapes, along with an old trusty and rusty VCR, and began to rescue away! With the help of three tabs (Record, Edit and Burn), Movies on DVD 7 allows users to capture VHS, Video8, S-VHS, Hi8 and - that's right - Betamax.
