Blackmagic Design has introduced its new Blackmagic Video Recorder, a compact USB video capture device that records videos in h.264 format for use with devices such as the iPod, iPhone, and Apple TV. The Video Recorder features cords for component, NTSC, PAL, and S-Video input, and the included software allows users to select their device, so videos will be encoded in the proper size.

I wonder if this captures macrovision encoded VHS. I have a few VHS movies that never found their way to DVD and have not been able to effectively back them up. A review would be most appreciated when it ships in July!
