Grass Valley Canopus ADVC-55 Analog to DV Media Converter. Reviews:



if you are trying to stream live video using adobe flash media encoder on a mac, this is the only solution at the moment... we have a sony EVI-D70 camera going into a new macbook pro retina display laptop... picture is outstanding. was not an easy solution to find. there are much better simpler devices like elgato etc but the encoder doesnt see them, sucks because those have even better picture.

Amazing and simple!

This device is incredible. Set up is a snap, and it works absolutely flawlessly. Anyone who has captured tape media before (e.g. HDV) will find this operation a no brainer. The quality of your VHS tape (or Hi8, etc.) is translated directly with NO loss in fidelity.

Canopus A to D converter is great.

Using this A to D converter is enabling me to put all my old home video tapes onto the computer and then onto DVD's. It's saving memories from 25 years ago for the grandkids.

I use it to digitize analog media,...and love the ease and quality it produces. I have no problem with the audio, I have read other reviews that had some problems.
