Transfer your video to DVD with Grabster

Home cinema

If, like me, you spent a good part of your youth recording your favourite bands and TV shows onto video, you might be interested in the new Grabster AV 150 from Terratec, which can quickly transfer your (almost) obselete video mountain to a digital format with ease.

The Grabster AV 150 connects to your PC via USB, digitising files from your video player at the other end in either MPEG1 or MPEG2 format. You can then play around with your old recordings, removing ad breaks and those overruns when the timer didn’t quite work as intended, before burning to DVD.

It’s not the first – check out the DVD Xpress DX2 – but shipping with a full version of Ulead’s DVD MovieFactory 3 for under £50, it is competitively priced if you just want to do a quick transfer job.
