Elgato Video Capture for Mac, iPhone and iPod

MacWorld reports: [edited]

Macworld Awards 2009 nominee Elgato Systems has announced Elgato Video Capture, a hardware/software combination solution for transferring analog video - including home movies on VHS video tape - to a Mac, iPhone or iPod.

The device connects VCRs, set top boxes, camcorders, DVD players, and other analog video sources, anything that uses composite RCA or S-Video outputs, to the Mac via a USB 2.0 interface. The package also comes with a SCART adaptor to connect the supplied RCA or S-Video cable.

With one click, videos can be transferred to iTunes, played back in QuickTime, uploaded to YouTube, or opened in iMovie for final editing says Elgato.

Generated files can be synced with video capable iPods, iPhones and Apple TV and can be edited in iMovie ‘09 without re-encoding. Elgato Video Capture automatically detects NTSC, SECAM, PAL, and PAL/60 video formats for worldwide compatibility.

Requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.5.6 or later.

Price: £89.95
