question

Can you confirm this is compatible with Hi8 tapes?
Asked by: Anonymous
It will take the output of your analog deck/camcorder and convert it to Firewire so you can upload them to your PC and convert the signal to digital. So far as I know if your camcorder has a yellow(video) output(or S-VHS out) and RCA audio outs you are good to go. You will however need a Firewire card on your computer. I used mine to transfer S-VHS tapes and it works flawlessly.

question

I am looking to connect my video camera to my computer to then show LIVE VIDEO FEED on our school projectors...however, whenever I connect my camera directly to the computer it doesn't read as a video device in any of the following programs: IMOVIE, QLAB, VIRTUAL DJ. If i purchase this and connect the camera to this will it then be able to read the camera and have my just mirror what the camera is seeing during my students live performances? Again, I don't even need to record it although that would be great...just to be able to mirror their performance and zoom in and such on the projector screen behind them :) please help!
Asked by: Anonymous
I'm not sure you can use your computer as a live switcher without additional software. My suggestion is if you do not need to record or add titles, bypass the computer. The projector will take the camera feed without the need for converting the signal.

question

Can I hook it up to my Sony DVCAM DSR-11 Digital video cassette recorder & convert my mini DV tapes to digital in Adobe Premier Elements ?
Asked by: thayne h.
Yes. However your DSR-11 has a Firewire I/O. You should be able to connect directly from the DSR-11 to your editor and control the DSR-11 from your Adobe Premier Import function.
