Analog Capture - Pyro A/V Link vs ACEDVio Card
on Feb 25, 2004 at 4:52:42 pm


Need for capturing and editing old VHS and possibly 8mm tapes

Please compare:

- ADS Pryro A/V Link with Adobe software bundle at $550

- Canopus ACDVio with Adobe software bundle also at $550

Canopus claims to be able to offer some adjustments and controls with software on capture, which I presume would help with my old tapes. Is that true? I would probably prefer the Canopus ADVC-100 over the card, but I also want the software bundle.

What do yo recommend?


My system:
Dell Dimension 4600
P4 2.6 ghz
512mb RAM
Windows XP
NVidia GE Force 5200 128mb
Soundblaster 16 bit 4.1

The ACEDVio is a PCI card that you have to install inside the computer. The ACEDVio also has the advantage of using Canopus' top rated DV CODEC.

The Pyro AV Link is a converter box that requires you to have a firewire port on your computer. It does a very good job.

Is the ACEDVio with the Canopus' DV CODEC likely to do better on capture of old video tape than the Pyro AV Link converter box?

I'm looking to do this on a budget and get the most for my money. If I could spend more I would likely buy the Canopus ACDV-300 box and the Adobe softare separately.
