    FastVDO Demos World’s Smallest H.264 Capture Board at CES 07
    2007 International CES

    LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FastVDO introduces SmartCapture, the world’s first USB H.264/AAC capture device! Content creation, content repurposing, field acquisition, surveillance and a host of other applications are now available in a compact, cost-effective form. Real-time high-quality audio/video capture is available in the latest formats: H.264/AAC, with the convenience of a USB device. Capture from any NTSC/PAL source, and encode multimedia files; software playback provided. Or, just run the device in reverse, and it double as a decoder, allowing convenient display on monitors like TVs. This version of SmartCapture opens the path to real-time HD capture, planned for the near future. This versatile device serves multiple functions, from capture and encoding, to decoding and file conversion. Planned formats include MPEG-2 TS for DVD creation or broadcast over existing MPEG-2 TS networks, and the popular MP4 format – so consumers can make iPod® files straight from live capture! Now anyone can movies or podcast video. Or convert from stored files up to 5X faster than real-time! Release is targeted for March 07.
