About Digi-Tech Converter
The Digi-Tech Converter promises you will be able to easily convert and share high-quality versions of your old analog videos by using their device. They claim it works with all tape or camera formats and you can watch on your PC or burn them to DVD to share with friends and family.
Digi-Tech Converter is marketed by Allstar Products Group (also known as Merchandise Direct) a company probably most (in)famous for introducing the Snuggie. They are not accredited or rated by the Better Business Bureau and there is no further information on the BBB website.
How the Digi-Tech Converter Works
Digi-Tech is a converter box with a USB cable coming out of one side and female attachments for analog audio and video devices (RCA and S-Video) out the other. They claim this makes it work with all old VCRs and camcorders like Hi-8 and MiniDV. To use Digi-Tech, first install the software on your computer (PC only), which they say takes only minutes. Next, attach your old camera or videotape machine using the analog connectors, plug in the USB to your PC computer, and press the button on the Digi-Tech.
In an instant, they claim DIgi-Tech Converter begins converting the tape to digital format, viewable on your PC screen or downloadable to your favorite gadgets. They state you can also burn your memories to DVD to share with others (provided you have a DVD-burner on your computer.)
They state that old video tapes can be damaged by heat or moisture and clutter up drawers and boxes. With one touch, they say your videos of weddings, birthdays, baby showers, or any other event you recorded for posterity in the pre-digital era are now preserved forever. They state you can combine a stack of video tapes to one DVD or upload them to video sharing sites so everyone can laugh and cry about the past together.
