Digitize your movie collection with the video converter

A video converter is used to convert analog footage such as VHS into digital form. It connects the video recorder and computer in such a simple way that even people without any experience can digitize their videos.

Then, video editing software is often used to save and edit the transferred footage on the computer. Once the transfer starts, the video converter converts the information contained on video tapes into digital signals, which the software then immediately saves on the computer.After the entire film has been rendered, the video is available in digital form and can immediately be archived on the hard drive.

The advantage with the digital format is that it can be edited directly on a computer. Video tapes that have been stored away for years are usually covered in dust, moreover repeated use and years of storage result in a loss of picture and sound quality. That's why the converter should be used to freshen up the picture and sound – virtually restoring tapes to their original quality. As soon as the movie has been digitized with the video converter, any scenes can be shortened or removed completely. Once the last edit is finished, the completed video can then be burned to DVD and watched on a TV.

There are a wide range templates containing DVD menus in the program, allowing you to burn DVD with the press of a button. The combination of a video converter and software, such as offered by MAGIX Rescue Your Videotapes! is everything you need to digitize videos and save your movies on DVD.
