Hello ;
I have a question Please...I am new to get live image from the Anologe Cameras(PAL/NTSC output) would really like to know what is the way to make a video recorder(or simultaneous monitoring) with about 50 cameras? Thanks.

You will need specific frame grabbers to handle 50 cameras on one pc. In general this should be possible using 4 DFG/MC4 (up to 16 video inputs each => http://www.1394imaging.com/products/interfaces/dfgmc4/ )

Please note, that it will take a few frames to switch the input from one camera to the next. Another boundary condition is that you can aquire only 4 monochrome video streams of one full color video stream at the same time.
