Neuros MPEG4 Recorder
Converting any live video to a format ready for the iPod, the PSP, or other small video players is usually a multi-step process that requires massive amounts of hard drive space: you have to find a way of getting the video feed to your PC, record it, and then encode it into the format you originally wanted. Neuros' MPEG4 Recorder 2 PLUS is meant to eliminate at least one step. Any video source that can output to RCA can be sent through the recorder and encoded into one of several pre-defined formats as the video plays. You can save the resulting video to a CompactFlash, SD, or Memory Stick Duo card. Neuros' hardware is available immediately for $160.
