Hi, I really appreciate having gotten some answers. Okay here’s the problem. All this is happening at work and we’re not into doing movies and stuff. The idea is to get this done with minimal equipment. We don’t have capture cards so we’re trying to keep this as simple as possible. I do video work as a hobby which is why I’ve been approached for ideas. Now, I’m asking the question.
Our inspectors have a ‘borescope’ probe which permits them to see in very tight spaces using a small monitor connected to the only output from the probe which is an RCA plug.
The problem is when Inspectors spot something they want to take a picture of. They don’t want to invest in equipment.
We know there are borescopes out there which will do what we want but is there a solution in using what we already have. I agree with both solutions Rick and ;0) gave but is there another way? We don’t want to go the capture card method because it means investing in a card then training people and we get into a situation which demands us to control who has access to the PC, then the Union gets involved and it all becomes a huge hooha. Taking a picture of the monitor isn’t a bad idea since it’s quick and involves the least equipment. The quality of the image might not be up to par however, since the pictures will be attached to e-mails and may need to be very clear! Any other ideas?
Hey, thanks for your help so far!
