      Hi Guys

      We currently film sports events that consist of many short video clips i.e. 2mins. We want this footage to be available to competitors in mpeg4 format very quickly after they have finished – to transfer to USB pen drive etc. We use a Canon XL2, film in 16:9 SD PAL, we have a MAC Pro and use FCP. What would we need to setup to capture the footage live and encode it to MPEG4 from the video stream so the clips were available straight away. Any help most appreciated. Many Thanks KJP

      BlackMagic Design’s H.264 Pro Recorder might be what you’re looking for. They say you can connect it to a deck and capture to a computer with a real-time h.264 conversion, but I see no reason why you wouldn’t be able to do it with a camera.

      Might also want to look into the Matrox MXO2 LE Max and the MXO2 Mini Max
