Carrying on the design philosophy already present with standard definition (SD) ADVC products, the ADVC-HD50 converter sports a sleek, portable design with an emphasis on simplicity and compatibility; the converter does not require any drivers or software to set up, and is compatible with both PC- and Mac-based editors.
The ADVC-HD50 converter will convert any uncompressed HDMI source, such as an AVCHD camcorder, to the HDV format for easier editing. This also reduces the need for a high-performance system or costly hard disk drive storage configurations to work with uncompressed HD video. The converter may also be used to convert non-HDCP-protected video from other HDMI sources, such as game consoles and set-top boxes.
Brings affordable HD flexibility into the professional workflow. Ideal for anyone creating video productions from HDMI sources and even gamers and 3D graphics artists seeking to capture from HDMI sources. Can be used as a live input for Thomson Grass Valley MediaEdge Laptops and desktops that need HDMI ingest without internal hardware to support the input.
