Connecting Video Devices and Monitors

Connect video devices to your computer through a FireWire connection or a dedicated video capture card (such as Pinnacle's Targa CinéWave).

  • You use a FireWire cable to connect your DV camcorder or deck to your computer. DV devices with FireWire transmit device control data, timecode, video, and audio over a single FireWire cable.

  • If you are using an analog video capture card, device control and timecode signals are transmitted over one cable, while video and audio data use a separate set of cables. The type of audio and video connection cables depends on the type of analog video device you're connecting. See your video capture card's manual or manufacturer's Web site for details.
