A capture card is a video device used to capture and/or record footage from a wide range of inputs. There is a multitude of applications that capture cards can be used for; and a multitude of devices they can be used with. For example, you could connect a capture card to a DVR, VCR, or gaming console to record that footage in a digital format and save it to your computer’s hard drive. As long as you have the correct inputs and cables the sky is the limit to what you can capture.

    A key concept to keep in mind when looking at all these devices is there is a big difference between capturing, broadcasting, and recording.
