video capture card
on May 18, 2009 at 11:30:26 pm

I own and run a recording studio. Our control room (room with all the gear) is on the 2nd floor of our space and the room with hte muscians is down stairs.
I'm looking to build a pc with some sort of video in to record video in real time so I can see the muscians as they perform. I would also like to record this video so I can compile music videos from the foootage.
I have a small budget but am looking for the best quality I can afford.
All I need is 1 video in.
My camera has a bnc out.
On my own all I can find is a card with s video in. I found bnc to s-video adapters but am unsure if the adapter will actually convert the signal into something that will work with the s-video in.
I have found video cards with bnc ins but they are all at least 4 channel and very inexpensive. I suspect there quality is poor.
I also need software that can record in real time from the video in.

Could someone please help me out?
Thanks

After more reasearch I think the Canopus ADVC-110 might work for me.
Can someone tell me if this can capture with minimal latency.

its an ok unit color is not too hot and drop outs do occur a tad.

with video there is no "latency" not like audio anyway. no buffer settings to adjust

the only time you would consider latency in video is in the real time broadcast world.

its fine for home use or grabbing stuff off VCR/back to vcr.

Decklink would be better

thanks for the reply.
the Decklink is out of my budget.
The camera I have has a bnc out. Will it work if I use an adapter to convert it to a composite rca cable or do I need a box with electronincs in it to convert the signal?
