Press Releases - ConvertX PX-AV200U

Brussels, 24th of April 2007

Plextor launches new easy to use, low cost digital video converter

Transfer analogue footage to DVD easily and cost-effectively - from VHS tapes and footage captured on an analogue camcorder. Plextor’s new ConvertX PX-AV200U is a digital video converter with the emphasis on ease of use.

Plextor’s ConvertX preserves old and treasured analogue footage by digitising it for posterity. Everything is included to get consumers up and running immediately – simply plug it into a PC via USB, attach the analogue source and let the powerful software do the hard work. It enables editing of digital files, creating Hollywood-style movies including professional transitions and titles, and sharing of CDs, video CDs and DVDs with family and friends.

The Plextor ConvertX box comes complete with Presto’s Digital Converter (converting software) and VideoWorks (video editing and DVD/VCD authoring software). It’s ideal for novices, yet powerful enough for more experienced users.
