Capture Card Database - *Read* - 03-02-2006 , 03:58 AM


I thought i'd try to solve many of the questions in this forum by putting together a database of video capture devices, please contribute to this and it will grow into a very useful resource for the future, here's the layout you should use for your entrys.

http://www.videohelp.com/capturecards.php <---Nice long list

Use this layout:

*Capture Device Brand, Name and Model Here*


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: *info here*
Firewire or USB: *info here if applicable*
Capture resolution: *info here*
Sound Capture: *Yes or No*
Compatibility: *PC, Mac or Both?*
Price: *info here*


A little about my Device
*Here write a short paragraph about your card, e.g:
My card is white and sleek and sits on my desk nicely, it was expensive but has great quality, although sometimes it leaves a horizontal green line in my recordings. It sits nicely on my desk and takes up little room. It's perfect for laptops. (You might also want to include a picture of your device here, thumbnail links only please! You could also include a video demonstrating it's capture quality)*


Pros
*Give a vertical list highlighting all the good points about your capture device*


Cons
*Give a vertical list highlighting all the bad points (if any) about your capture device*


Notes
*Write down any notes about your device you think people should know about, e.g:
"My device came with free editing software, a spare USB cable and one years free tech support."
You could also post links to any movies you made using your capture card here.*

*Please contribute to this, following the exact layout I have set before you. The Main title is size 5, the subtitles are all size 4 and the other writing is the default size. The colors used are Brown, Blue, Green, Red and Purple. This could become a very useful resource so please contribute info on your device!*

Daleks - please also make a special note if you know whether the card is PAL60 enabled or not - it can be important, so only say it's for sure if you have first had experience

http://highimpacthalo.org/forum/showthread.php?t=15326 - More capture card film samples to be found here.

For anyone having this problem:

I have one of these capture devices. And you CAN get PAL-60 out of it. Get DScaler and set the 360 to TV output, in PAL-60, then set signal input in DScaler to SECAM-B. Happy recording. You'll get some interlace issues at first, but jiggle the settings and it's right as rain. Use HuffyUV AVI lossless compression as output format.

Tadaa.
This may work with other cards too.

Pinnacle, Dazzel DCV 90


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: USB
Capture resolution: 720 x 480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC as far as I know
Price: USD $ 79.99

A little about my Device
It's a niffty little sky blue unit, it literaly fits in the palm of my hand. I has Full A/V hook ups and a S-video hook up. The USB cord has a good reach, about 5 or 6 feet (but I got a ten foot extention so I can do some serious capturing on my big TV) It comes with editing/capture software but i don't like the editing part its to buggy for me, but it capture a good amount of capture options.....it saves as .avi and .mpeg Its a very inexpensive capture card for what it does. now time for a demo, i'll use &quot;high quality&quot; capture on the card and the default &quot;best for playback on my computer&quot; Bitrate in WMM The Demo

Pros
Very inexpensive easy, the hardware is easy to use, it's small, it does every thing most people will ever want it to do.

Cons
The software that comes with it can be bugy and had to understand, if you dont have the right TV set up lots of capturing can be painful because you get a tiny screen that tends to lag at the beging of a capture or in heavy action so it is very easy to fly past the point where you wanted to stop.

Notes
This only runs off USB 2.0

ATI TV Wonder Pro


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: PCI Card
Capture resolution: 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PCs for sure, not sure about Macs
Price: ~ $60-70


More Information
The TV Wonder Pro is one of the highest quality capture cards, and its price is like no other. It captures in full 720x480 DV resolution, and comes with the equipment necessary, other than an Advanced AV pack or however you plan on splitting the A/V signal.


Pros
- Good price
- High quality
- Comes with software


Cons
- Hassle to install inside computer sometimes
- Captures in MPEG-2 by default, a little annoying because it's compressed.


Notes
The software that came with the capture card was not installing on my Windows XP Media Center computer. I managed to download it off ATI's web site here, and now it works just fine.

Also, here is a 20 second sample of its quality: Filefront

*Pinnacle, Studio AV/DV


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: N/A
Capture resolution: 720*480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $50

A little about my Device
This device is totally internal so it takes up no space at all. I just replaced my old 56K modem PCI card with this beauty. It was extremely easy to install. All you do is unscrew one screw, slide out the old card and slide in the new one and screw back in.


Pros
Unbelievalbe capture quality, both video and audio. The best I have seen for under $120, no joke. Being only $50 with amazing output, I just couldn't resist. So easy to install, such good quality, and so easy to use with the capture software.


Cons
The only con that I can think of is if you don't feel comfortable with the inside of a computer and how stuff works, the PCI card install would be the hardest thing to do. If you have EVER opened a PC case though you should feel completely comfortable with the install.


Notes
Comes with free software. Not the best software if you have used an editing programing before hand. Very good capturing interface, but I personally don't like the actuall program. I switch to Vegas after I capture it.

LifeView FlyVideo TVR


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: N/A
Capture resolution: Up to 640x480 or 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $45


A little about my Device
The capture card is an internal PCI card. If you know your way around the computer, its very easy to install. If not, have your geek friend help you. The video quality is pretty good, but it takes horrible pictures. You can capture in AVI format or mpeg1, both 30 fps. It also has sound capture, but that is also pretty bad, but fixable. Go out and buy an RCA audio to computer line in converter (about $5) to get good quality audio capture.


Pros
-Good video quality
-Good capturing program
-Easy to use
-Many inputs in the card
-Ajustable brightness, contrast, hue, and saturation


Cons
-Bad still picture quality
-Bad audio quality (easily fixable, read paragraph above)


Notes
You can buy the card here

Notes
this capture card is really nice although can heat up so make sure its in a good spot. also make sure you have at least a 5200 rpm harddrive or you wont be able to record in full quality. I have video that the capture card takes when at meadium quality setting.

QUALITY!!


The most important thing. heres what it can do at medium quality. (note I cant record High quality because the file size goes insane. trust me though its really good at high-qualtity. )

Pinnacle Dazzle DVC 85


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: USB
Capture resolution: Up to 640x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: 43.00$ - 53.00$


A little about my Device
It's relatively small, ugly teal blue. :P It's got a very nice long USB cord on it, and can be placed nearly anywhere. It's not an uber capture card, but it gets the job done.


Pros
Small size
Non-propriatary support (meaning, you can use it with other video apps asides from that which comes with it, such as WMM)
Long Cord
Good Audio


Cons
Ugly color. :P
Less than satisfactory video quality at 640x480.
Installation is semi-confusing if not done right.

Notes
I reccommend this CapCard to anyone who's just starting out with video capture.

Cannon ZR90 Digital Video Camera


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: Firewire
Capture resolution: 1024x768
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: Both
Price: $400-$500


A little about my Device
My card is actually not a card at all, but a digital video camera. The Canon ZR90 allows me to digital transfer anything from any video source onto my computer. The quality is greater than most capture cards on the market. Though it's waaay to pricey for just a capture card, it's very reasonable for it's video quality. Set up is a bit chaotic, though, as it requires many random wires to hook up to an Xbox and the PC.


Pros
Unmatched capture quality.
Shows a lag-free preview of what you capture on the camera's screen.
It may be free if your family already owns one.


Cons
Very expensive.
Messy set up.


Notes
If you have no idea how to use a digital video camera of any type as a capture card, refer to my tutorial here.

Tv Cardbus Video Capture Card


Device Tech Specs

Internal or External : Internal
Firewire or USB : Other - PCMCIA
Capture Resolution : 720 x 480
Sound Capture : Yes
Compatibility : Laptops
Price : 30 / $50


A little about my device

This is a wonderful capture card, Although it is quite cheap, its quality is amazing and it does the job lovely. It captures in 720 x 480 resolution. Here is an example of its quality. (This has also been compressed with Windows Media Encoder). The card supports pal 60 mode, is easy to setup and to use. It comes with capture software (WinDVR), I don't use it though. lol. Pinnalce is the best.


Pros

Amazing quality
Supports pal 60 mode
Easy to setup and use
Can take screenshots when using certain software (Pinnacle being 1 of them)


Cons

Short cables
I think this card only works for laptops (unless you buy a PCMCIA adapter)


Notes

This is an amazing card, If you have any questions please ask me ;)

Here is a short clip I filmed with it.

High Quality Clip - GT at the time was Nirox

ATI All-In-Wonder 2006 edition (internal)

Device Tech Specs

Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: N/A
Capture resolution: 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $200


A little about my Device
This is a nice little card for your computer. It serves as both a capture card, and a video card. It captures very high quality video at a large resolution. The input block is small, and is a domino (literally).

Pros
-High resolution
-High quality picture
-Serves as a good video card as well as a capture card
-Includes a coax TV tuner
-Supports pixel shader 2.0

Cons
-A beast to set up
-Does not work with Windows Vista beta


Notes
It came with Pinnacle Studio 9 ATI edition (which i despise...), ATI catalyst drivers, and a free disk of gameshadow (whatever that is...).

A quick vid of me screwing around: http://useruploads.mythica.org/view.cgi?f=sample3.avi

KWORLD DVD MAKER PCI



Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: PCI Slot...
Capture resolution: NTSC 720 X 480 PAL 720 X 576
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $30


A little about my Device
This thing is amazing for the price on it, I have had no problems with it. It has an input for Composite or S-Video, and an output for audio through a 3.5mm jack. (Plug that into Line-In) I got it at Fry's Electronics for the amazing price of $30, great deal. Preview window for capturing can be expanded, using regular composite inputs Halo 1 is expanded to 640 X 480 and is very playable and you will only encounter problems with big bright maps like blood gulch, nothing to bad. Here is a sample clip taken from recording 8 minutes of Halo 1 (originally around 6GB, now compressed to around 32MB) http://useruploads.mythica.org/view.cgi?f=Movie-381.wmv


Pros
Very, very cheap
Great quality for price
Easy to install
Comes with software to burn to DVD.
Preview window expands to full screen.
Captures in amazing quality.


Cons
Umm... that I already bought a capture card that was $120 when I should of got this one for $30....
None so far...

Notes
Comes with 2 discs one with the Drivers, and another with the software DVD MovieFactory 4 SE. Is Multilingual,

Pinnicle 700-USB

Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: External
Firewire or USB: USB
Resolution:Amazing
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC
Price: $150


A little about my Device
I got this yesterday and I am exceptionally pleased. It is a flattened blue square with in and out ports. Easy hookup and I can capture while I play on the tv. For $130 I wasn't broke after getting it. It comes with Pinnicle Studio Plus, but I hate it. It works with Windows Movie Maker and VirtualDub. It also capures sound from other programs. I recommend this to anyone.

Pros
Pretty cheap
Amazing quality for $130
Simple setup
Comes with Pinnicle Studio Plus(although I hardly call that a pro)

Cons
Only one con which is that if I record an unedited clip for 1 minute and 40 seconds it is 500 megabytes, but looks amazing.

Notes
After recording size is immense but quality is amazing. Open it in movie maker and save it. Takes away a little quality in exchange for hundreds of megabytes. 4 seconds is 23.7 mb

Here is a test after compressing it and lowering quality.

Here is a 2 second unedited clip with amazing resolution. http://rapidshare.de/files/26544725/Test2.avi.html

Capture resolution: N/A
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC (Windows XP Version or above)
Price: $51.99 At Best Buy


A little about my Device
*Here write a short paragraph about your card, e.g:
My card is red and sleek and sits on my desk nicely, it wasn't too expensive, and it captures like a DVC 100 from Dazzle. Or, as good as my VCR records.

Pros
Cheap
Easy to Use (If you have the brains to work it, which I didn't. At first anyways...)
$51.99 for a Dazzle DVC 100 in disguise!
Cool color!


Cons
Ugly Yellow Asterik on the top


Notes
My device came with three CDs with all the editing software and capturing software I needed. I believe it's set with NTSC settings.

ATI TV Wonder Elite


Device Tech Specs
Internal or External: Internal
Firewire or USB: PCI Card
Capture resolution: Default 720x480
Sound Capture: Yes
Compatibility: PC's are what I use, WIndows Media Center
Price: I got it for around 89$, but I heard its cheaper on the internet


More Information
The TV Wonder Pro is one of the highest quality capture cards, and its price is like no other. It captures in full 720x480 DV resolution, and comes with the equipment necessary, other than an Advanced AV pack or however you plan on splitting the A/V signal.


Pros
  • Not TOO expensive
    Comes with drivers and what-not, easy to install
    SO FAR, I've had no issues, that's around a month or so.
    The cord is nice and long
Cons
  • The programs if comes with can't view Composite for some reason... unless that's just me, so they're next to useless
    It lags. But That might also be me.
Notes

it works fine for me, no matter what KORHAL says about ATI products <.<. Finding software for it is kinda hard, since I play on my computer, but that's just me and my 2.2 ghz CPU.
I like it, so I would recommend it.

After waiting a full week and a half for my capture card to at least arrive off of backorder and slow shipping, i finally received it from a UPS guy yesterday. Right away i opened the box, and it surprised me how nice it looked, and it came with a remote control yesss! lol So i tested it out all last night, and i must say this $20 internall cc of mine can easily compete quality wise with $100, and most likely come through with better quality. It's unbeleiveable that a cc for only $20 could be this high quality. I'd rather buy this than a $100 Dazzle anyday.

Pros

*Great quality (quality test below)
*Comes with a remote
*Really inexpensive
*Comes with pretty nice capturing program- WinDVR
*Installation takes 2 seconds if you know what your doing inside a computer

Cons

*I installed the a driver wrong, so the TV Tuner and Remote aren't working. (hopefully i can fix, im 100% sure i can:) )
*If you don't know what your doing inside a comp, internal capture cards can be confusing
*none except mistakes i made that can be fixed:D

This is the place i bought it at:http://www.macmall.com/macmall/shop/...119115&Redir=1

Some pics coming soon

*Note* im not 100% sure but Micropac Technologies must have had either their name changed or have been bought out by Sabrent. The product isn't on the website, but searching around the web should get you some history on Micropac or Sabrent. I'm havin probs w/ the drivers after trying to install one to get the tv tuner working. Until i found out how to fix it, don't try to fix the tv tuner by downloading a diff driver, it'll mess up everything so you cannot record.
