The Grass Valley ADVC300 is a bi-directional analog-to-digital video converter that provides analog filtering and is able to operate with or without a computer. As a standalone device it converts back and forth from analog media to DV (IEEE-1394). It also supports the DV codecs for conversion into a computer FireWire port.

Note: A video-capture card or OHCI FireWire (IEEE 1394) connection is required to capture DV.

Featuring high-quality image-enhancement technology--including digital noise reduction and image stabilization using line time base correction (LTBC)--the ADVC300 unit instantly cleans, stabilizes, and preserves old VHS and Hi8 videos in a clean DV format.
Connects analog video equipment to FireWire (IEEE 1394)-equipped computers for video editing.
Compatible with Windows (including Windows 7) and Mac operating system-based DV editing systems.
