Want to move your Digital Video right to your iPod without any fancy workarounds or PITA synching?

Well, read on. 

I have been writing about television technology for some 20 years, now. One constant I have often noticed during this time is that technology created for professional videographers and producers often makes its way down the food chain to consumers. Digital video recorders come quickly to mind.

At the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) annual convention going on now in Las Vegas, video editing keyboard manufacturer Bella Corporation has just announced a product called Catapault.

Sounds interesting, this Catapault. It is build as the world' first device to allow capture of video footage from digital video or high-definition digital video cameras to iPods.

This works with a standard USB 2.0 connection. The Catapault even comes with a neoprene pouch that can hold said iPod.

As Bella is introducing Catapault at the NAB, Bella is positioning Catapault as an editing tool, and the iPod connectivity as a facilitator of that.

OK, I think I know what you are thinking. $$$$$, right?

Well no, not exactly. Bella is saying that Catapault will be priced "under $300."

Catapault will be available in the second half of this year.

Does Catapault sound like something you might be interested in? TalkBack and let's discuss.
