HD Capture Device for iMac?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello all.

I was wondering if anyone knew of a high definition capture device, accepting either an HDMI or component cable, that works with the iMac (so, using USB 2.0 or Firewire)?

Thanks for any pointers!

What exactly do you wish to capture? If it's TV, the elgato eyetv hybrid works really well.

Do you have a Intel Machine or a very late G5? those are the only ones that can handle HD at all.

Here's a start:

I have a current generation Intel iMac. I'm wanting the source to be independant -- might be TV today, might be something else tomorrow.

Thanks for the link -- it looks like that might be the solution. What software would I use for the Mac in order to capture the video (the web page seems to indicate the included software is Windows only)?

oh shoot, sorry about the software.... If the Mac can see it, then iMovie or Final cut express or QT pro should capture video from it.

Canopus: forgot these guys! They are mac compatible and works with Final Cut Exp/Pro, used it in college. Not very cheap but see if they have what you want:

Not much in the consumer market yet, not a lot of demand I don't think. Also, been such a PITA over content and copyrights holds alot of this kind of stuff up.
