Cameras for VideoPoint

Affected Products:

SE-7472 NOT A VALID PART NUMBER

Problem/Symptom:
What is the best video camera to use with VideoPoint?

PASCO Solution:

Digital Video cameras (whether FLASH, Digital8, DV, or miniDV) will give better quality images and allow better computer control than analog video cameras, but you must have the following:

  1. The latest version of VideoPoint Capture or a Digtial Video capture program that supports QuickTime or CinePak-Compressed AVI as an output format.
  2. To have adequate support for OHCI-compatible DV recorders, you must either run WindowsXP or later or download and install DirectX 8.1.
  3. An OHCI-compatible IEEE 1394 controller card.

Note: Basic video analysis is included with our newer PASCO Capstone software.
