Nope. The video signals are converted to a uniform standard in your
frame grabber.

The QC is neither PAL not NTSC, but a proprietary standard. You don't
have any access to the video signal, it is hooked to your printer
port.

So, you can't use it for any real video applications either.

Hope this helps.
