I purchased an "Alera


I purchased an "Aleratec DV Cruiser" on eBay for about $20 that works great for capturing and converting analog video (any format) to digital (mpeg). I purchased it about a year ago, but I don’t currently see it available for sale on eBay. Perhaps it was a close-out sale.

But you can visit the Aleratec site that has a a toll-free number that you could inquire.

Here’s the link:


Good luck!


I’m putting together a simple, inexpensive system for capturing VHS & Hi-8 video into
an Adobe Premiere Elements project. Obviously, with the lower cost devices, realtime, render-free editing/effects/previews are not available as they would be with a Matrox RT.X2 system.
