Elgato Products 20% Off Through End of January

Thursday, January 26th, 2012 | Author:

It’s been a while since we last talked about Elgato’s range of TV tuners and video capture accessories. Don’t worry, though; they’re still as awesome as ever. If you’re a regular reader of the OWC Blog, you’ll recall several posts on these products…including one that tells you how to turn your Mac into a DVR.

The big news today is that we’re making them even more awesome by knocking a full 20% off the MSRP for every Elgato unit we carry as our Macworld special for 2012.

Yep, you heard that right – from the EyeTV Hybrid tuner to the Turbo.264 HD encoder unit and everywhere in between, we’re taking our already low prices on these units and bringing them even lower. No rebate forms, no hassles, just instant discount. And if you’re attending Macworld, stop by our booth #513 to check out these and new OWC and Newer Technology products.

Of course, all good things have to come to an end, and so it is with this special. You’ll need to order by January 31, 2012 in order to get these great, amazingly low prices. After that, we’re back to our regular “affordable” prices.

Video capture with Elgato is 20% less expensive – Just another great deal brought to you by OWC.

How does it work?

First you need a Blu-ray drive. Fortunately, OWC just happens to sell some. ;-)

Download & install the Mac Blu-ray Player application from Macgo.

After inserting a Blu-ray disc and launching the Mac Blu-ray Player application, you will be prompted to select your disc or a backed up .iso image. You must be connected to the Internet for the application to decrypt the disc for watching (a point brought up when this was discussed in OWC Radio, Episode #57). After the application scans the disc, it begins playback. Article Continues…
