Recording Video

Hi

I am completely new to the Beagle Board so my question is rather
basic!

Can the board be used to take in analog video, encode it and write to
a USB stick or an SD card?
I also need to add an On Screen Display giving some text and the date/
time, I could do this in external hardware but could it be done on the
same board ?

I would appreciate any suggestions on external hardware and software.

Regards

Terry

yes, given you use an usb based analog capture thingy

yes, this can be done w/o additional hardware.
