    What would have been nice is an add on card to the NX. Theres enough connectors on that thing to add HDMI capabilites to it. Much like the HD Extreme Card from BM.

    I already have the Intensity Pro, and with the optional breakout cable, I can get
    2x XLR Balanced Audio Input
    2x XLR Balanced Audio Output
    1x BNC SPDIF/AES Input
    1x BNC SPDIF/AES Output
    3x BNC Component Input
    3x BNC Component Output
    1x BNC Ref Input
    1x RS-422 for Deck Control

    All of that on top of HDMI. The card and the cable is less than $500...compared to $1299 and is already 64bit ready.
    Captures in uncompressed 8bit and MJPEG. Both work well in Edius. Edius 5 is supposed to have better MJPEG handling capabilites as well.

    The software looks fine, but I'll stick with my NX and Intensity Pro for now. I am interested in the HD SDI version that was announced.

    I wouldn't think being able to view on a secondary monitor is a big deal during capture, so HDMI output is mainly relevant while editing. An HDMI input could also be useful for capturing directly from some cameras while recording, in which case device control isn't a concern?

    yes but capturing from an ohci device will not give you monitor preview while capturing...

    Best reason to keep your NX card

    If you use a HDV camera you have device control, with a HDStorm you don't, HDMI has no device control.
    Although I suppose you can add a firewire card (or from your MB) and select OHCI device to capture, then switch.
Working...
