What Equipment Do I Need to Convert a Hi8 Tape to DVD?

A Hi8 camera and a standalone DVD recorder or a computer with a video-capture card and video capture software, along with audio-video or S-video cables and a blank DVD, are needed to convert a Hi8 tape to DVD. To convert only a portion of the Hi8 tape using a standalone DVD recorder, an audio/video system is needed in order to monitor the video as it records.
