Hour 2. Premiere Setup > Going Over Video Capture Card Features

Going Over Video Capture Card Features

Analog camcorders output video in as many as three ways: composite, S-Video, and component (from lowest quality to highest). Each uses different cables and connectors, and each requires different technology to convert the analog signal to a digital stream for storage in your computer.

You'll need to select a video capture card with analog inputs that match your needs. The three primary capture card manufacturers are Canopus, Matrox, and Pinnacle (see Figure 2.1). All their capture cards have IEEE 1394 connectivity, and most have some number of analog input and output plugs. In addition, most support MPEG-2 compression and real-time effects rendering.
