Credit to RGVCAM with all hs help and more........................

The following FAQ is provided as a source of information in one place to make life easier for those researching a hybrid. The information contained herein, is correct to the best of our knowledge, but with the ever changing nature of the web, there no guarantee that a piece of information is correct or uptodate. It is intended as a guide and starting point only.


) What devices would classify as a hybrid?

A hybrid is generally considered to be a device that combines a camera/camcorder with an mp3 player. Devices such as the Aiptek MPVR and Samsung i6 would qualify under this. They currently all use a form of MPEG4 for the video format rather than the more inefficient MJPEG compression still in use by most regular cameras, although this may change in the future.

) What companies produce hybrid type devices?

Aiptek
DXG
Mustek
Samsung

) Which companies sell directly in the USA?

The following companies sell directly into the USA Market, but be aware that no every model they currently produce may be available. Also they are often sold under a different name. For instance the Aiptek T100 is sold as the IS-DV2 while the T300 is not available at all.

Aiptek
DXG
Mustek
Samsung

What hybrid models are currently available for sale in the USA?

Check the websites for the US website

) What are the web addresses for the various hybrid manufacturers:

Aiptek
North America http://www.aiptek.com
Europe http://www.aiptek.de
Taiwan Headquarters http://www.aiptek.com.tw
Hong Kong and China http://www.aiptek.com.cn

DXG

Mustek
United States http://www.mustek.com
Taiwan http://www.mustek.com.tw

) What software can you use to convert the .asf format used by the Aiptek Cameras?

Freeware:

Windows Media Encoder from Microsoft is a free download that can be used to convert them to wmv format.

TEMPGenc can be used to comvert them to MPEG-1 format and includes templates for VCD compliant MPEG-1 files.
It can be downloaded from http://www.tmpgenc.net/en/e_download.html

Super from http://www.erightsoft.net/Superdc.html can convert it to a variety of formats including mobile phone formats such as .3gp
