    I don't really need HD-SDI right now, but a card that's capable of supporting it would be a huge advantage for me.

    Hi Jerry, it was only one questionnaire and that question was on there. I did mention somewhere about the same issue that you were on as well, so hopefully 2 out of XX people will help? :D

    Once companies lose market share, they'll start to make new products...Thing with Canopus is that they're big in Japan, so they don't really want to worry about the rest of the world, but with the GV acquisition, a change is inevitable.

    Without a question, SD/HD-SDI/HD Component inputs would be a major plus nowadays, with cameras such as the Canon H1's supporting HD-SDI, I don't see how a capture card company can stay in the biz without releasing an affordable cardset for this type of market...the gap is really blurry now, and you don't need to have a $100,000 Turnkey to do what you could do 10 years ago.

    Dave,
    Is it really worth the price difference if you are not using beta decks?
    I'm not sure what he is or is not doing.

    so the Edius SP is sufficient.
    Bill,
    Do you need SD analog component in/out?
    I thought the SP-SDI was only available by turnkey?

    All of the HD is the same as the NX. Unless you really need the fancy breakout box and the SD component in,and still no SDI, you might want to go with an NX card. I'm waiting for an HD/SD SDI card from GV. If that doesn't come soon with a decent price tag, other vendors make other cards.
    At this point, I have seen some pretty good deals on the NX card with the bay. It might be worth looking into.

    To be accurate, it's not a third card, but rather a PCI slot panel with 3 x BNC leads that connect to the EDIUS SP main board.

    Depending on your system's chassis, it's possible to avoid losing a slot when installing this new panel.

    (not sure, but you might even be able to run the leads out of your PC case without the slot panel - ugly, but effective if you're pressed for space)
