NORTH BRANFORD, CONN. -Two low-cost USB video connectors have been added to the Dazzle Digital Video Creator (DVC) line made by the Retail Brands Group of SCM Microsystems.
Called the Dazzle Digital Video Creator 50 and 80 video connectors, the devices are designed to make camcorder and PC connection fast and easy.
Even inexperienced users are said to be able to quickly and easily capture video from any camcorder, television or VCR. Captured videos can then be edited/enhanced, stored on a CD, e-mailed or incorporated in Power Point presentations.
Dazzle DVC 50, at $49.99 suggested retail, is a USB video-capture device that includes composite and S-Video connections to the camcorder. It provides Windows Millennium Edition users with the link they need to capture video on the PC and take advantage of the editing capabilities of Movie Maker software that is included with Windows ME.
For Windows 98, 2000 and ME systems, the Dazzle 80, at a suggested $69.99 retail, includes built-in audio/ video ports and easy-to-use Dazzle MGI Video Wave 4 video editing software. The Dazzle DVC 80 includes composite, S-Video and RCA audio connections to the camcorder.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
