Customer Reviews

This device is simple, works easily, and works flawlessly.

This digital video converter has provided me great service in moving VHS tape family video files to digital form.
Kenneth L. Campbell
Once the files are captured to AVI, I can edit them, and render as 6MP WMV files which I can upload to YouTube.

This excellent product is made by Thomson and is sold under the name Canopus and Grass Valley. It came with a seven page user manual including how to set the set of 6 DIP switches. I bought the additional power supply that avoids sucking juice out of the PC through the normal 6 pin firewire cable (included with the unit). Some complaints about the cost of this external power adapter do not take into account the 4 pin firewire cable that also comes with the adapter so I have no complaints over the cost. I have tried to save money by trying various converter units that are in the fifty dollar range and learned the hard way that I was just throwing away money. Spend the big bucks up front and get this one since it is rock solid and does the job! I ran it into my quad PC laptop (Windows 7) and asked Pinnacle Studio to grab the stream of digital video coming out of the converter; no problem. When there is analog video/audio going in (from VHS tape), there is automaticaly digital coming out. Pinnacle sees it as if it were a DV camcorder and creates a file as the video streams in. All the heavy lifting is done in the converter so the PC and its software just fills up a file in its hard drive. No drivers needed and no strange interaction effects with the operating system. Pinnacle Studio allowed me to create an MPEG coded file as the DV streamed into the computer. The file is automatically saved as it comes in so the device is so simple to use you can be fooled into wanting to do more. Just be very careful to set the DIP switches properly, if you don't you will not get what you want. Count me a strong believer in this device.

I've tried several lower-end AV capture cards - some worked some of the time, often requiring a proprietary program to perform the capture. Don't waste your money on other on-the-cheap options. I bit the bullet on getting this one after learning about Canopus/Grass Valley and their professional line of production equipment. In short, this box works, has several hookup options (firewire, S-video, RCA) and works every time for me. The built-in hardware processor is the key. It's certainly not required, but it works seamlessly with Edius Neo NLE editor. Makes video work a lot more fun!

If you're reading this review, you've probably read a number of reviews of other similar products for the purpose of converting analog (e.g., VHS) input to digital format. If so, you're already likely aware of the plethora of problems encountered with cheaper analog/digital video conversion devices -- software that hangs, audio out of sync with video, devices which burn out quickly, poor picture quality, etc.
This device is a great example of how purchasing a quality product will spare you wasting both time and money, as well as sparing you hours of frustration. This device is simple, works easily, and works flawlessly.
Plugged it into my computer's 6-pin (IEEE 1394) Firewire port (My rig: Asus P8P67 mobo, Intel Core i7 processor, Win 7 Pro) and Windows searched for and installed driver (took < 60 seconds). My Corel Video Studio Pro X4 application immediately recognized the device and my first attempt at importing video from VHS worked flawlessly on the first try. My mobo's IEEE 1394 (6-pin) Firewire port takes care of powering the ADVC110, so I didn't have to purchase the optional power supply.
Advantages of this device:
The ADVC110 has a microprocessor which does the work of digitally encoding your analog video input -- not your computer's CPU. As a consequence, it won't slow your computer to a crawl.
No software to install, so you can't experience problems with bargain-basement software, OS incompatibilities, etc., as seems to be a problem with competing cheaper products.
This device will works with video formats from any area in the world, including PAL and SECAM, as well as North-American NTSC.
Note: When I plugged-in the device, Win 7 flashed up a window offering me the option of capturing video.

I'm using this Canopus to live broadcast high school athletic events online. Works really well. Just be sure to get one with a power supply if you are not going to use the 6-pin Firewire to power the unit.

Took a little for me to have everything to sync with my Mac. Google search helped me determine the correct Firewire connection needed to match this to my MacBook Pro (6pin to my 9pin connection). The RCA connectors needed were a Radio Shack purchase. With a little experimentation I was able to import my first video into iMovie. The quality of the copy is reasonable (considering the analog to digital conversion). I would like better but I'm not sure that is possible. I'm happy with my purchase and resulting recording. I can now save all those home movies without sending the only copy out to a company.
