LGR (Lazy Game Reviews) is one of the largest English-language channels dedicated to the old computer hardware and no less old games. At the end of 2018, he released a video with a story about how he records video from old computers - and I decided to turn this video into a small text note. The original video (in English) is at the end of the publication.
A device for outputting a picture from a video card to two monitors at the same time, or in the case of our task, to a monitor and a video capture card. Clint (author of LGR) notes that, like many others, this splitter is not perfect, sometimes it leads to noise and interference.
Similar to a splitter, but for sound. Again, not perfect, but with this problem helps the next device.
Noise isolator helps to get rid of problems with pickups in the audio signal.
Video card for recording video via VGA/HDMI. I even wrote about her my article on the web site. In general, a great device, but has some number of drawbacks:
Plus, it can work without a computer and write video on a microSD card, though in this case the bitrate is limited to 20 Mbps in 1080p (in lower resolutions even lower).
In the red, only HDMI is supported. But after all on the old computer VGA, how to be that? And then come to the rescue next device.
Convert VGA signal to HDMI.Pros:
A mega-thing with a full-fledged DVI input, capable of writing both VGA and HDMI through adapters, supports any low and non-standard resolutions.
The real minus is only one: the price.
Bonus device for fans of the oldest hardware: converts the signal from old CGA/EGA/MDA/HERCULES video cards, etc. in the vga. Clint has a separate video about him .
