Roxio Easy VHS to DVD

"Roxio, a division of Sonic Solutions, has announced the immediate availability of Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac, a combination of software and hardware that provides consumers with a quick and trouble-free way to convert and transfer personal video and entertainment stored on VHS tape to DVD. Roxio Easy VHS to DVD for Mac is available in retail stores and directly from Roxio for a suggested retail price of $79.99."

Almost a month ago we posted about Elgato's video converter and now Roxio has come out with their version. Both do basically the same thing, but they focus their marketing on different aspects of conversion. Roxio is selling this as a way to transfer your analog video to a DVD in a painless solution, something that anyone will be able to do with no experience. It seems they are focusing on the right to DVD mode versus the Elgato focus on uploading or transferring to another device. Roxio is selling this for $79.95 USD versus the Elgato device, which sells for $99.95 USD.

Elgato's Analog Video Capture for Mac

"Elgato announced the release of Elgato Video Capture on Friday, a device that allows users to transfer analog video - including home movies on VHS tape - to a Mac. Videos can then be uploaded to the iPhone or iPod Touch."

This is a much cleaner design than the converter box I use now to convert my analog video, and at $99.95 USD is also much less than what I spent a few years ago. It connects a variety of sources such as DVD players, camcorders, etc via USB 2.0, and includes software to record the video in either H.264 or MPEG-4 formats. More info is available at Elgato.
