We need a "real" time mpeg-2 capture card
on Apr 25, 2005 at 8:58:53 am


We are a computer company in Istanbul, Turkey. We’ve used Darvision’s Mpegator PCI capture card to make VCDs for five years. We intensively capture video cassettes (VHS-Beta-Hi8-VHS-C), which are people’s engagements, weddings, birthdays, tours and meetings, seminars etc. of companies.

Now, we want to buy a real time mpeg-2 PCI capture card. We don't want to wait for rendering. We want the card to capture mpeg-2 in real time without using system resources. The card we want should work even in PIII systems without dropping frames. As we know, a real time mpeg-2 card doesn't need very fast systems. We have nothing to do with effects, professional editing, menus, fonts, softwares. We will just capture from analog video sources (VHS- Beta- Hi8- VHS-C) in mpeg-2 format and then burn DVD videos. We want to pay money for the card itself not softwares.

Which cards do you recommend to us?

What do you think about these cards:
- Mpegator-2
- Mpegator-4
- Pinnacle Liquid Edition 6
- Matrox RT.X100

Thank your for your help,

Adam (
