Roxio offers Easy VHS to DVD
My my, the humble VHS tape certainly took a long time to become extinct, and it has even outlived digital products like the laser disc. Well, all good things must come to an end, and both VCDs and DVDs have taken over the role of VHS tapes in the home entertainment arena for a fair number of years now, rendering VHS all but obsolete. This time round, even newer digital formats and media have been released with Blu-ray making the most noise, but that doesn’t mean your years’ worth of VHS tapes ought to be flushed down the drain, right? Fancy digitize recordings of your VHS tapes in the comfort of your living room before mildew destroys data on those tapes? Roxio has the solution with its Roxio Easy VHS to DVD software and hardware combo.
For the uninitiated, Roxio Easy VHS to DVD is a combination of software and hardware that allows users to quickly digitize analog recordings stored on VHS tapes. All you need to do is connect the included hardware to a high-speed USB 2.0 port, and you’re given the all clear to capture from virtually any analog video or audio source. The inclusion of S-Video and composite-video inputs allow for full-resolution DVD recording from VCRs, VCR/DVD combo players, and analog camcorders including Hi8 and V8 models. If you’re interested in converting your entire library of VHS tapes instead of repurchasing them in newer formats, head on here and purchase it online or wait for next January where it will be made available at retail stores worldwide for $59.99.
Easy VHS to DVD is a snap to use even for beginners, featuring a full-featured video editor that allows beginners to apply filters to correct video quality, rearrange or remove unwanted video segments, and spice things up with a range of transitions, titles and effects. Not only that, you also get to fiddle with an innovative DVD authoring application complete with professionally designed templates to create your very own DVDs with motion menus and a host of transitions according to taste. Guess you’d best have plenty of time if you want to maximize use of the Easy VHS to DVD.
