New Gear Products in the pipeline
HP DVD Movie Writer DC3000. Available now for $399 SRP. This device combines a DVD recorder with a video capture device and MPEG-2 encoder. The result is a straightforward product that transforms VCR and camcorder videotapes into DVDs. The Movie Writer still needs to be hooked up to a PC to access all pictures, but HP's software guides users through the connection of VCR or analog camcorder, capturing and dumping the video to DVD.
