Portable, Video Conversion Device Accepts Virtually Any Video Source and Records It to a Computer Via USB.

Cumberland, R.I. (Jan. 6, 2011) – ION (, a leading manufacturer of consumer electronics and entertainment technology, announces immediate availability of VIDEO 2 GO, a portable video-to-computer conversion device. ION will exhibit VIDEO 2 GO at the 2011 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), booth #12638, in Las Vegas, Nevada from January 6 – 9.

VIDEO 2 GO is a video conversion system for Mac or PC that works with nearly any video and audio source. Once converted, videos can be watched on a computer, burned to DVD, downloaded to a portable video player or quickly uploaded to Facebook® and YouTube® from within the included software.

VIDEO 2 GO is easy to connect to a VCR, DVR, camcorder or any other video player with both composite and s-video cables available. Its convenient size allows for reaching tight places and fitting in where space is limited. A USB extension cord is also included to allow even more flexibility when connecting video equipment to a computer. 

VIDEO 2 GO features a snapshot button, which takes a still image of the video source during the conversion process. This still image can act as a thumbnail to quickly identify the video’s content or be used simply as a stand-alone image. 

Included with VIDEO 2 GO are both Cyberlink PowerDirector and PowerProducer PC digital video editing programs. These simple, user-friendly programs make creating videos and slideshows easy, complete with music, voice-overs, special effects and transitions. Mac users can use the included Videoglide Capture and Videoglide Exporter software. VIDEO 2 GO even works with QuickTime or iMovie, so video can be converted without even needing to install software.

“VIDEO 2 GO is the easiest and most portable way to digitize your video content from virtually any video source imaginable,” said Gregg Stein, Managing Director, ION.
