Do you happen to have one of those ancient VHS tapes in your home? Why not preserve them in a modern digital format with the VHS To Digital Video Converter?
This device converts your old VHS tapes to digital video files and saves them onto your computer, allowing you to preserve your VHS movies, TV shows, family videos, and more without relying on a conversion service. Video playback can be paused, allowing you to skip sections at your discretion, and video is stored in real-time as an MPEG4 file on your computer, enabling you to then burn content onto DVDs using the included software. Converted digital files can also be copied to a video iPod or other portable media player. The device has RCA outputs that connect to a TV so you can monitor your videos as they are converted. The unit plugs into a PC running Windows XP or Vista with an included USB cable (USB 2.0 required). The included software allows you to edit your videos.
At least you don’t have to search out photo shops that offer such a service and save yourself a handsome amount, assuming you have a massive backlog for conversion in the first place. The VHS To Digital Video Converter retails for $249.95.
