Digital Betacam SD SDI Capture on an SGI VW 230

Unread postby assyrix » Fri Jul 07, 2006 6:07 am

Hello all,

Could anyone shed some light on the possibility of capturing standard definiton DigiBeta with full audio on a VW 230? What SDI capture card would you recommend (may also be an old one that is no longer manufactured)? Do these cards come with a capture application and a plug-in or do you need a dedicated video app to capture?

Hi,

I suggest the Blackmagic Design Decklink card.
Very good card family, 32bit pci version available. These cards come with lots of plugins and capture apps. Check the manufacturer's web site.

I looked at the Decklink cards but on their website it states that "Windows™ PC's must have 64-bit PCI or PCI-X slots" (which the VW 230 does not have).
