Realtime Video Capture on PCs --- free seminar on Technologies and Products
1. Defining Concept: What Is Realtime Video Capture
2. Video capture quality criteria: How to judge the results?
Objective vs subjective criteria
Post processing possibility
3. Video compression: The essential video capture process
Why compression is needed
Where compression is performed: On-board (hardware) vs. On-host (software)
Common compression comparison: MPEG vs DV
Is There Compression-Free Video Capture?
4. How Is Captured Video Stored on PC?
Sequence of image frames
5. Major components of video capture card
6. Technology trends: New features built into video capture devices
New format capture
Higher resolution -
Compression algorithms: MPEG2, MPEG4(H.264, VC-1),
Camera types: HDV, HDCAM, DVCPROHD, etc.
Movie disk formats: HD-DVD, Blue-Ray Disk, EVD, etc
Visual comparison: How good are the HD video vs non-HD
