Set Up a Live Capture - Canopus ADVC-110

The Canopus ADVC-110 is the recommended capture box to use when capturing SD (standard definition) video with Sportscode. The device is easy to set up with very few settings to change and no external software needed.

  1. Set the switches on the bottom of the ADVC-110 to the following positions:

    Switches #1, #4 and #6 should be in the OFF position.

    Switch #5 should be in the ON position.

  2. Connect your video source to the input(s) on the ADVC-110 using either Composite (red, white, and yellow) cables or S-Video cord.

    The Inputs are on the front of the ADVC-110. 

  3. Connect the ADVC-110 to your computer using a 6-pin to 9-pin Firewire cord. The 6-pin end will plug into the back of the ADVC-110. The 9-pin end will plug into a Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter which plugs into a Thunderbolt port on the computer.

    This portion of your setup may vary depending on the age of your Mac. Older Macs have 9-pin Firewire ports built-in while newer MacBooks do not. If you’re using a newer MacBook, you will need the Thunderbolt to Firewire adapter to use an ADVC-110.

  4. Plug the power cord for the ADVC-110 into an outlet.

  5. Press the gray button on the device to make sure that the light above Analog In is on.

  6. Launch Sportscode and click CaptureOpen capture window.

  7. Click the icon to set up your capture.

  8. Select ADVC-110 as the video and audio source in Sportscode and be sure to use an SD NTSC capture preset.

  9. Select SD NTSC 16:9 for the capture preset. 

  10. Click the Capture icon to set the name for your movie package and start the capture.
