  • I'd like HDMI without taking it all apart

    As an owner of an SP system I don’t have the luxury of HDMI.

    Does anyone have any advise on the best way forward to incorporate HDMI without having to shell out £$£$£$?

    I don’t want to loose my SP breakout with XLR etc by moving to a Storm..

    Thanks as always

    Installing both HDStorm and SP boards is possible in many systems...

        Maybe wait for the HDSPARK HDMI out card?

            HDSPARK is a very small HDMI output board, designed simply to provide sync'ed AV playback from an EDIUS v5 timeline to an HDMI display. Ingest is not included - you're on your own there (ie. USB/FireWire, etc)

            Keep in mind that for now, HDSPARK will only be available as an option to the EDIUS v5 software...which means buying a copy of EDIUS v5 to get the HDSPARK. Currently this will add $100 USD on top of the regular $799 MSRP, making it $899. Considering that HDSTORM's special upgrade price is $999, you're getting awfully close enough to the same pricing level of a more featured HDMI solution.

              So what happens if you bought EDIus5 when the HDSPArk was not available?
              Do I see a special upgrade in the future? :)

                  At this stage, I don't know if there will be any upgrade path for HDSPARK, if you bought v5 already.

                  This is part of the reason why the information about HDSPARK was announced at the same time, so that people can make an informed decision about their purchase. HDSPARK was always going to ship ahead of the $249 promo expiry..

                    Wasn't there talk about selling the HDSPARK card without Edius?

                      Was mentioned in another thread from CP, there are rumblings of such, but as of yet, HDSPARK alone does not exist separately from the EDIUS software.

                        Why not use Component for HD monitoring? :\

                          I agree and it looks stunning on my 42" Plasma via Edius SP component

                            The HDspark will be a nice low cost solution for people who have only the NX card (like me) with out the HD expansion card, as some of us are happy (enough) with capturing HDV through OCHI and previewing through the Spark at a price you can't beat.
                            I was saving up for a HD expansion card, but as it is only a hobby at home it leave's me more cash for other goodies.

                            If I had to make a choice as a buisnes, the HDSpark would be out and go for the HD exspansion card first and maybe add on or second system with HDstorm or HDthunder, different users, different wallets ..........

                              At the first GV roadshow here in the UK an approximate price of £525 (ex VAT) was quoted for HD Spark + E5. I failed to ask if it would be available as a stand alone card - it looks as tho it will not from the KH comment.
