From VHS to DVD with TerraTec's Convenient New Grabby Digitizing Tool Featuring MAGIX
With TerraTec's new Grabby digitizing device, a few mouse clicks are all it takes to turn old VHS tapes into digital movies in top-notch quality. MAGIX Movies on DVD (TerraTec Edition) is part of the package, so archiving videos on DVD couldn't be any easier.
Connecting TerraTec's Grabby is so easy. Simply plug it into a computer or notebook's USB 2.0 port and install the software - that's it. Once the video recorder is connected, nothing stands in the way of saving cherished memories and collected series. Users can digitize videos in the typical MPEG 1 and MPEG 2 DVD formats with the greatest ease: Simply start the video recorder, press the Grabby's record button, and go. Users may then edit out superfluous scenes, add cross-fade effects, load their favorite song to the audio track, and put a pretty title on it all. Formatting personalized menus and burning the results to DVD takes very little time.
Record, cut, and burn - that's all there is to quickly coming up with video discs. Although remarkably easy to handle, the MAGIX software application Movies on CD & DVD offers features not only newcomers will enjoy. Its intuitive user interface and clearly structured menu make it the ideal solution for creating one's own movies on DVD or CD. Experts are also sure to enjoy the many advanced settings. In addition, this package affords users the opportunity to load their films to a portal called the MAGIX Online Album. This convenient web showcase makes it so easy to share the latest vacation videos with friends - no programming skills needed.
The full PAL resolution of 720 x 576 pixels ensures premium video quality at every step of the editing process. All devices equipped with analogue video outputs (camcorders, sat receivers, and DVD players) may be connected. This gives the user even more application options.
