Plextor announced the new ConvertX PX-AV100U Video Capture Device for mass consumer markets. The palm-size device makes it fast and easy to capture video by connecting virtually any video source to a personal computer.
The PX-AV100U captures high-quality, full-screen video ideal for recording onto DVDs and Video CDs, and is the first entry-level consumer video capture product to include software-based conversion of video into the DivX(R) format.
Priced at $79.00 (MSRP), the ConvertX PX-AV100U was developed for users who want to record video to a PC for the first time. The PX-AV100U features capturing of video into the MPEG-2/DVD format or MPEG-1/VCD format via a real-time software encoder, as well as software-based conversion of video into the high-quality DivX(R) format. This highly compressed format enables users to send video files over the Internet, archive video on CDs and DVDs, and play video on cell phones, PDAs, personal video players, or DVD players that support DivX. Analog inputs provide wide compatibility with different video sources, while a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 interface ensures video is captured to the PC at the highest possible quality level.
ConvertX software is based on InterVideo's popular WinDVD Creator 2. WinDVD Creator 2 lets users capture and edit video; add titles, transitions, effects, music, and menus; and create a DVD (or VCD), mini-DVD, AVI, MPEG-1, MPEG-2, WMV, or DivX movie.
The Plextor ConvertX PX-AV100U is scheduled for shipment to distributors and resellers in North and South America immediately. The PX-AV100U has a Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $79.00 USD. All retail packages include unlimited toll-free technical support and one-year full warranty.
