Pinnacle Video Transfer

Record TV straight to your iPod

Wouldn't it be dandy if you could record stuff straight from a telly, camcorder, DVD player or VCR and dump it directly on to an iPod, PSP or flash stick? With the miraculous little Pinnacle PVT you can do exactly that at the touch of a button. No computers or pesky software required. Unbelievable!

Three Easy Steps:
Pinnacle Video Transfer

Plug in any video source

Insert any USB storage device

Record!


Believe it or not this idiot-proof box of tricks captures any type of analogue video and transfers it to your favourite USB-friendly gadget in pristine MPEG-4 format. Simply hook it up to your source machine, set the picture quality, press record and gawp in amazement as the Pinnacle works its magic.

Pinnacle Video Transfer

Analogue signal to digial file without a computer!


Pinnacle Video Transfer
Armed with this pocket-sized gizmo you can back up holiday vids on a memory stick for safe keeping/transfer to PC, record TV shows in real time and watch them on your iPod, or digitize dusty VHS tapes and laugh at Jimmy Hill's pointy beard as you watch old episodes of Match of the Day on your PSP. You can even transfer gaming sessions from your console of choice. As if all that wasn't enough, the Pinnacle also recharges your storage device's battery as it re-jigs all that lovely video. It's quick, simple and utterly brilliant.

If you're wondering how the spamheads at Pinnacle managed to cram all this one-touch conversion technology into such an itty-bitty box, keep wondering - we've no idea. What we do know is this is one of the greatest bits of electronic jiggery pokery ever created. Once the audio/video RCA leads are connected even a really stupid monkey could operate it. Granted, there are only so many episodes of Baboons Do the Funniest Things worth digitizing but that's not the point.

Customer Reviews

Aces! Used it for the first time last night, and it worked a treat. Plugged it straight into the back of me Sky Box, and it recorded QI with the divine Stephen Fry while I watched it. The Sky box has two scart sockets, so with devices that only have one, you do need extra leads apparently if you want to watch and record at the same time, otherwise you have to do blind recording. Bloody good quality as well. Now, to back up my VHS....
