[AG-TECH] Digital DVR

On our campus we have a number of the Accordent Capture Stations
(http://www.accordent.com).  These boxes come with an Osprey capture
card and a VGA capture card.  What I did to capture access grid meetings
was to set up a separate camera to point at the desired video window
and, took and a screen-capture of the presentation and audio from a PIG,
and the Accordent software works its magic and you get a nice-looking
presentation to watch with a video window next to the screen capture
window.  It also allows you to index the videos so that you can browse
to the screen shot that you wish to hear about and the video will jump
to that point in the presentation.  I would post a demo but I do not
have anything that can be shared.


Hope this helps,

Looking for a commercial grade DVR that will record my AG sessions. Want
to record to the hard drive via .avi or .wmv then be able to transfer to

All the consumer versions like Tivo are all full of recording "off-air"
and full of TV Guide menus that I don't want or need. 


Any suggestions?
