A video digitiser is the ideal tool for capturing images from real life scenes to incorporate in to computer work. The expansion card, which is plugged inside the computer, allows direct connection to a range of video sources, such as video recorders, camcorders or still video cameras such as the Canon Ion.
The digitiser enables a live moving image to be seen on screen, in true 256 grey levels for smooth shading and clarity. These pictures can then be captured and incorporated into any suitable application, such as art or DTP packages. Unlike some other digitisers the captured image is displayed immediately.
The GreyHawk card has been discontinued but the software is available as part of the ScanLight 256 Video card.
