Overview


EasyWorship can project images from your computer through external devices (e.g., DVD, VHS, Camera[s], Mixer) using a capture card. Most capture cards are PCI cards that are installed into PCI slots on the motherboard of your computer. Each capture card has its own input connections. Some are RCA (composite) jacks, some are S-video, and some are FireWire IEEE1392. It is important that you determine the type of interface cable desired before you order your capture card.


NOTE: FireWire IEEE1392 has some latency that is noticeable. This option may not be desirable if your audience is watching the source and output screen at the same time (e.g., IMAG). Some capture cards do not work well with multiple cards of the same type. See System Requirements at EasyWorship.com/Support.
