Educational budgets being what they are, purchasing new DVDs to replace old VHS tapes may not be a possibility for many. Many teachers would love to be able to convert part or all of their VHS collection to a digital format. Well, now they can, with both ease and low cost. Roxio’s new $80 Mac Bundle called “Easy VHS to DVD is the solution.
The bundle includes software and a USB video capturing device that includes S-Video and composite video input cables, red and white stereo cables, to support recordings from lots of devices and practically any analog device. The software allows you to directly burn copies of the new digital content or you can send it to QuickTime Player or iMovie in a wide range of formats. (Another great way to get content onto your iPods for you iPod in the Classroom fans.)
Great for both Mac and PC. (I’m a Mac and must pay $20 more for the device, but it sure beats the alternative.)
