Dazzle is a video recorder that allows people to record video from analog composite video sources (DVD Player, VCR, etc.) over USB. It also records analog stereo audio.


There are two different ways one can connect components to the Dazzle. One way is to connect a VCR or video game console directly into the unit with RCA or S video. Another way is to use three composite splitters to split the AV signal, sending one into the Dazzle, and another to a TV. This method is popular for recording from video game consoles, since it provides a real time feed into a TV (used as a preview monitor) while simultaneously capturing the footage.
