Elgato Video Capture records from analog video sources in the H.264 or MPEG-4 formats that are native to iTunes. Your video is captured in real-time and no lengthy re-encoding is necessary; the video is immediately ready to sync with an iPod, iPhone, or Apple TV, to play in QuickTime, to edit in iMovie, or to upload directly to YouTube.

Put Family Memories on your Mac, and More
The era of VHS tapes is winding down, and after three decades there is a lot of video content to transfer for modern playback devices. What’s more, any video stored on magnetic tape (such as VHS, Video8 and Hi8) has a limited life span and deteriorates over time. Elgato Video Capture provides an easy way to bring those precious memories into iTunes, to edit them in iMovie, and to share on the Web.

Elgato Video Capture is very easy to use. The software Assistant guides you through every step, from connecting an analog video source to capturing video that is optimized for the way you want to use it. The software offers a simple tool to trim the beginning and end of the captured video. And, it takes just one click to add your video to iTunes to sync with an iPod, iPhone or Apple TV; to play in QuickTime; to upload directly to YouTube; or to open in iMovie ready for editing.

Video to your Mac from a DVR, DVD Player, or Set-Top Box
Perhaps you’ve been given a DVD from a family event or reunion and you want to share it by posting it on your website or on YouTube. Or you’ve saved some great movies and TV shows on your DVR and want to play them back on your iPod. Elgato Video Capture can connect and capture video to your Mac from any device that has composite “RCA” or S-Video outputs. It also comes with a SCART adapter.
