s-video to firewire

I posted a while back on a similar topic but now I know for sure what we want to do. I would like to record directly to Final Cut off of our switcher. I need a good s-video to fire wire converter. Any good recommendations. I will be putting in a budget request so lets start at the top and work are way down as far as pricing goes. I don't want the most expensive unit just because I do want one that will give me good quality. My only other question is how can I make sure the audio and video are synced up?

Something that would work is a cheap camcorder with s-video. It will convert it into firewire.

NTSC is America's broadcasting standard (vs. PAL or SECAM). It doesn't have anything to do with widescreen, so don't worry about that...

Canopus is been making good A/D D/A (that's analog to digital and digital to analog) products for years. I've heard great stuff about them. Check out the ADVC 55 or 110.

I actually use a Sony Sony DVMC-DA1 Media Converter but I think they are out of production now.

I'm currently using the Canopus ADVC 110 to do what you are describing and it works very well. I have never lost audio sync or dropped frames. I'm capturing the sermon through the Canopus straight into Final Cut, doing a quick edit and exporting for the Web.

I agree with both other posts. A cheap camera or the canopus gear will work fine. The camera can also be used as a player recorder to and I think it will be cheaper than the canopus gear

Hope this helps
