DVRack: Video Recording without the Tape

Toms Hardware By: Humphrey Cheung December 3, 2004 Serious Magic DVRack lets you ditch the Mini-DV tapes and record straight to your PC's hard drive. Installed on a laptop, it takes the place of many pieces of antiquated and clunky video gear that were formerly needed to ensure high quality video recording. GIGO - "Garbage In, Garbage Out" - is a common phrase in the computer world, but you may also hear it in video editing and production circles as well.
