Roxio has announced the release of a new product called the Roxio Easy VHS to DVD, a converter which uses both hardware and software to help consumers digitize analog recordings stored on VHS tapes.
The converter works by attaching the hardware to a computer through a USB 2.0 port, and then capturing any video or audio source. The product also comes with a full-featured video editor.
"The clock is ticking on massive amounts of irreplaceable analog recordings from aging footage of weddings, baby's first steps, reunions, and other special family moments, to collections of classic TV episodes, movies and concerts," Vito Salvaggio, vice president of consumer products for the Roxio division of Sonic Solutions, said as part of the announcement. "With Easy VHS to DVD, we've made it point-and-click easy for families to preserve, rediscover, revive, and relive this content on PC, DVD, or mobile devices."
