ADS Tech launches Instant VideoMPX for capturing, creating and direct recording of MPEG-1, WM9 and DivX video.
USB 2.0 hardware/software solution enables fast, easy capture of video.
ADS Tech (http://www.adstech.com), a leader in consumer video editing solutions, today unveiled its new Instant VideoMPX. The new device can be used with a Windows?XP system and the bundled Ulead?VideoStudio?8 Basic video editing software for capturing, creating and direct recording of the MPEG-1, Windows Media?9 (WM9) and DivX?formats.
Instant VideoMPX allows pure, uncompressed video to flow over its high-speed USB 2.0 connection to ensure transfer of the highest-quality video. Video is then compressed into MPEG-1, DivX or Windows Media Video by the PC based on the video compression engine selected.
With Instant VideoMPX, users can maximise the capacity of a low-cost 700MB CD, a key benefit for notebook users and consumers who have other portable video playback devices. When the MPEG-1 (VideoCD) format is selected, one hour of video can be recorded to a single CD. For even higher storage capacity, WM9 and DivX compression can be used to record two hours of video to a CD.
"Instant VideoMPX addresses the needs of consumers and business users who want to capture video in a single format that will be portable and will play back on all of their devices," comments Mike McCoy, ADS Tech President. "It gives them the power and flexibility to capture video that can be played back on DivX-compatible DVD players, Palm* and Pocket PC* PDAs, portable video players, and digital media receivers such as the ADS Tech Media-Link. With Instant VideoMPX, you can take your video with you."
Instant VideoMPX includes Video Studio 8, an easy-to-use video capture and editing application. Simply by setting the capture options, users can record direct to VCD, DivX or Windows Media 9 to create content that can be played back on their PC and then burned to a CD, saved to flash memory media or played in a portable video player. With the 3-step movie wizard, and the automatic editing and trimming features, even a novice can create entertaining videos.
The Multi-Trim feature in VideoStudio lets users quickly trim out all of the parts of the movie they don't want in one simple step without complex editing. Then, after inserting the video clips and background music in the Movie Wizard, they can set the style theme (vacation, sports, romance, etc.) and let the Wizard create the complete edited movie.
Users that want to customize their videos can use the powerful editing tools to add video filters, adjust audio levels, and add fades, wipes, effects, titles, voice narration and more.
In addition to its USB 2.0 connection, Instant VideoMPX includes RCA (composite) and S-Video (Y/C) video inputs and is equipped with a high-quality 9-bit video digitizer and 4-line comb filter. Audio input is provided by the RCA stereo (left and right) input. The device also includes support for the NTSC, PAL, and SECAM video formats for multi-national use. It comes with an integrated 6-ft. USB 2.0 cable, a 6-ft. RCA audio/video connection cable and VideoStudio 8 video editing software with DivX support, as well as a user guide and an installation CD.

The Instant Video MPX is priced at 69.99 including VAT, and is available from Amazon, Dabs and savastore.com
