I represent a non-profit tax-exempt organization (www.operationmom..org) that sends out thousands of packages and mail to our troops serving abroad dailey. I am also the LAN/WEB administrator for this organization.
As such, many people want DVD's and VCR tapes of my PowerPoint presentations which uses streaming video, flash and other like items in it. I currently can burn the DVD's and also VCD's, but I cannot reverse the process and take the PP presentation back to the VCR via the S-VHS in on the VCR.
I need to purchase equipment that will let me record an exact duplicate of my PowerPoint presentations, and/or burn them onto DVD or CDR's.
I am looking at purchasing the following:
1) Two VCR's which have the appropriate plug-ins for this, whether Firewire, USB, S-VHS, etc...
2) Capture board (internal or external)
3) Software that will do the above, and automate the VCR's via software
4) Video cards and sound cards as necessary for the above
I currently use a simple Dazzle external device for editing VCR tapes onto WMA format for upload onto our website, but I would like to have the ability to have two way transfer.....Best bang for the buck.
As we are on a fixed budget, I don't want to spend more than $3,000.00 if I can help it. Can someone recommend by brand name, model and cost of each component that would serve my needs the best?
