Software converts VHS into digital format
Corel has launched its first Roxio product since buying the company last week.
Roxio Easy VHS to DVD 3 Plus has been developed to help people transfer old analogue VHS, Hi8 and V8 tapes to DVD.
Corel said the software makes the process easy because users simply connect their video camera or VHS player with their computer using the Roxio video capture USB device and following the steps in the guide.
The new USB device simplifies setup by automatically detecting the video source format. The software can also burn large videos across multiple DVDs if extra disc space is required. Supported formats include MPEG-2, WMV, H.264 AVC and Divx.
Sean Penn, vice-president of product management for Roxio products at Corel, said: "Over the years, when we picked up our video cameras and recorded the exciting events in our lives, we wanted to have them forever.
"Now, so many of these irreplaceable memories like weddings, graduations, children's birthdays and other special family celebrations are locked away on old tapes that are degrading over time while the devices to play them are disappearing.
"With this simple-to-use product, anyone can convert their aging video tape to digital and save and share the movies that tell their family's unique story,"
The software can be bought online now priced £59.99 and is expected to be in the shops at the end of the month.
