With Instant VideoXpress, users can grab snapshots while they view their video by pressing the space bar. They can also preview at 60 frames per second and grab de-interlaced images for sharper image quality.
Instant VideoXpress is an external USB 2 device that is automatically recognized when connected to a Windows XP computer. With the high-speed connection, audio and video can be captured from analog sources—uncompressed, for the highest quality, or in the compressed AVI, MPEG-1, or WMV 9 video format. When the VideoCD format is selected, one hour of video can be recorded to a single CD. For even higher storage capacity, WMV 9 compression can be used to record two hours of video to a CD. The device also includes support for the NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video formats for multi-national use.
ADS Tech has enhanced Instant VideoXpress with its USB Video Grabber application, which enables users to preview video and grab Bitmap snapshots from the video as it plays, and three multimedia software applications.
Instant VideoXpress is available for immediate delivery with an MSRP of $59. It is compatible with Windows XP Home and Professional systems. The external device comes with an integrated 6 ft. USB 2 cable, a CD containing Instant VideoXpress hardware drivers, Ulead MovieWizard, muvee AutoProducer, PhotoShow light, and a 30-day trial version of Ulead VideoStudio 9 SE video editing software.
