Divio NW721 DV Codec Provides Digital-To-Digital Connection In ADS Instant DVD+DV
Introduced at NAB 2003 ADS Instant DVD+DV allows consumers to connect IEEE 1394 MiniDV camcorders to USB2.0 PCs to easily create DVDs
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 3, 2003 -- Divio Inc., a pioneer in integrated digital video chip designs, today announced that its single-chip NW721 DV Codec enables MiniDV digital camcorder connectivity over IEEE 1394 in the new ADS Instant DVD+DV. ADS Instant DVD+DV is the first product based on the Divio-driven Cirrus Logic USB-DVR 2.0 Reference Design. ADS Instant DVD+DV will be on display at NAB 2003 in Las Vegas, booth #SL2262. Instant DVD+DV is the follow-on to ADS wildly successful product, USB Instant DVD. Instant DVD+DV is an easy-to-use external peripheral that lets users transfer analog or DV format video while converting the signal into MPEG-2 and sending to a PC over USB2.0 in realtime. This allows users to quickly create DVDs or CDs for sharing with friends and family providing timeless archives. Divios NW721 enables the ADS Instant DVD+DV to directly connect to MiniDV camcorders over IEEE 1394 (i.LINK, FireWire) providing a pure digital-to-digital path, with no loss of picture quality. MiniDV camcorders have rapidly emerged as the standard in consumer video recording. MiniDV camcorders record content digitally in high-quality DV format and transfer pure digital signals over IEEE 1394 connections. With the proliferation of multimedia PCs in consumer households, home movie editing is becoming a common application. Instant DVD+DV combines IEEE 1394 and USB2.0 connectivity in a single product, enabling users to quickly and easily record and archive their home movies in full resolution, DVD-quality video, then burn them to DVD or CD discs and share them with family and friends, said ADS President Mike McCoy. With the movie stored digitally on the PC, families can easily archive or make duplicates to ensure the longevity of their video memories. The NW721 DV Codec enables us to build on our core strength as a world leader in Universal Serial Bus and IEEE 1394 PC solutions. The ADS Instant DVD+DV is the first solution that bridges 1394-based camcorders and USB 2.0 computers, said Steve Musallam, Director of Marketing at Divio. MiniDV camcorders are now the standard for capturing home movies and the NW721 DV Codec enables products like Instant DVD+DV to truly take advantage of DV over 1394 providing a pure digital path from camcorder to DVD. ADS Technologies Instant DVD+DV will ship in late April with an estimated street price (ESP) of $249 and will be marketed and distributed worldwide, including U.S. retail availability at Circuit City, Best Buy and CompUSA.

How VideoStudio Works
ENGLISH VideoStudio follows a step-by-step paradigm so that editing tasks remain uncomplicated from start to finish. VideoStudio also offers more than a hundred transition effects, professional titling capabilities and simple soundtrack creation tools. Learn in seconds, create in minutes. VideoStudio breaks up your movie into separate tracks, giving you broad creative freedom. Changes to one track do not affect others. After transferring footage from your camcorder, you can arrange scenes, apply special effects, overlay images, add animated titles, sync in a voiceover narration, and use background music from your favorite CDs in formats such as WAV and MP3. All these can be done using drag-and-drop, cut-and-paste, or select-and-apply operations. All the tracks in your movie are then organized into a video project file (*.VSP), which contains all the video and audio information on how your movie is put together. When everything is all set to go, your computer collects all information needed to create your final movie file. This process is called rendering. You can then output and distribute your movie as a DVD/VCD/SVCD title, streaming Web page video, or an e-mail attachment. You can also record your movie back to your camcorder or VCR.
Components of a finished project as displayed in Timeline Mode
DVD, VCD, and SVCD
There are several factors to consider in choosing an output format for your project. These include your desired output quality, target playback device, and viewing screen size, among others. Here are the advantages and disadvantages that picking each output format entails:
Video Compact Disc (VCD) is a special version of a CD-ROM that uses the MPEG-1 format. The quality of the exported movie is almost the same, but usually better than VHS tape-based movies. A VCD can be played back on a CD-ROM drive, VCD player, and even on a DVD player. Super Video CD (SVCD) is commonly described as an enhanced version of VCD. It is based on MPEG-2 technology with Variable Bit Rate (VBR) support. The typical running time of an SVCD is about 30-45 minutes. Although you could extend this to 70 minutes, you will have to compromise sound and image quality. SVCDs can be played back on stand-alone VCD/SVCD players, most DVD players, and all CD-ROM/DVD-ROM with a DVD/SVCD player software. Digital Versatile Disc (DVD) is popular in video production because of its quality. Not only does it guarantee superb audio and video quality, it can also hold several times more data than VCDs and SVCDs. DVDs make use of the MPEG-2 format, which has a much bigger file size than MPEG-1, and can likewise be produced as single or dualsided, and single and dual-layered. They can be played on stand-alone DVD players or on the DVD-ROM drive of your PC.

ENGLISH The process of transferring video from your camcorder or other video sources to your computer is called capturing. When everything is ready to go, the video feed from your source device should be visible in the Preview Window. If your card supports a television monitor, you should also be able to watch your video on it. Once launched, VideoStudio immediately detects the capture settings. If no capture driver is present, you will be led to the Edit step automatically. You need not switch from capture mode to playback mode anymore.
Checklist for successful video capture
Capturing video is one of the most demanding tasks you will ever ask of your computer. It involves high data rates and requires huge amounts of disk space. Here are a few things you can do to ensure success: Shut down ALL other programs that are running except Windows Explorer and VideoStudio. Remove the Screen Saver to avoid possible interruption. Best results can be achieved by using a dedicated video hard disk, preferably with the capabilities of at least Ultra-DMA/66, 7200 rpm and more than 30GB space. For better manipulation of batch capture and camcorder device control, correct timecode on the DV tape is a must. To do this, before shooting your video, use the standard playback (SP) mode and shoot a blank video (for example, leaving the lens cover on while recording) without interruption from start to end of a tape.
Capturing analog video
To capture video using an analog capture card with audio/video jacks or S-video: 1. Connect your video source device to your capture card. On some cards, you may also need to connect the audio cables. 2. Open a project and click the Capture Step. 3. Select a capture file format (DV, MPEG or AVI) from the Format list. 4. Scan your video to search the part to capture. 5. When you get to the point you want to record, click Capture Video on the Capture Settings Tab in the Options Panel. 6. Click Stop Capture or press [Esc] to stop capturing. Tips: A delay in capture may be due to the confirmation dialog box or connection between devices. It is better to rewind your tape to an earlier point before capturing and just trim the video later. The normal number of dropped frames is zero. If any frames are dropped, check if the DMA setting is enabled.
If a confirmation dialog box appears, click OK to start the capture process. To disable this, click File: Preferences. In the Preferences dialog box, click the Capture Tab and clear Enable press OK to capture.

Check the ADS support site often for updates, FAQs, documentation and patches. USB Instant DVD FAQs 1.) Screen Resolution: Q. What is the minimum VGA setting? A. Minimum screen resolution is 1024 x 768 or higher. This resolution will allow you to properly display the full resolution MPEG-2 video which is 720 x 480 (NTSC) or 720 x 576 (PAL). Color depth can be set to 16 bit or higher depending upon Graphic card capabilities 2.) Motion Video Preview: Q. The video will not preview or is very slow, or gets slow after a few minutes. A. Check your VGA settings. If you are set to 1024 x 768 at 32 bit or higher, you may be using your entire graphic card memory for display and dont have enough resources for the video overlay. Solution: decrease color depth to 16 bit. B. Check in Device Manager and verify that you have set your Hard Drive to DMA Enabled. Instructions on how to do this are detailed in both the CapWiz and Ulead Video Studio portions of this user guide. Having DMA not enabled is the most common cause of poor video captures with symptoms such as dropped frames, jerky preview or video playback that looks like it is playing in fast forward.

C. In CapWiz we enable video de-interlacing. This de-interlacing engine will remove most of the visible lines that normally appear in NTSC and PAL video signals. This de-interlacing process does use some CPU cycles. If your video is a bit jerky, use the Custom Settings under Video Format and create a custom capture setting with de-interlace turned off.
Q. If the maximum bit rate for DVD burning is 9.8 Mb/sec. why would you allow me to capture at a higher bit rate? ENGLISH A. Because many users have asked for this type of flexibility. Not everyones goal is to capture video for burning to disk. You may want to capture video at the best possible quality so you can edit and then export to video tape. You may want to use video clips in a business presentation. Q. I can hear audio but I dont see any video when I click the Preview button in CapWiz. A. Check your video input cables to be sure you are connected to the Video OUT on your video source. Also, check to be sure you have selected the correct Input setting in CapWiz (RCA or S-VHS). Make any changes and start preview again. We hope you enjoy using Instant DVD 2.0. ADS Technologies, Inc.
