Looks good
 
Quick question that maybe answered but just missed it (and I have read it through a number of times)...

Can they both do Uncompressed SD capture?

I can only see reference to CanopusHQ codec.

Cheers

Ok....back to question....
 
Any idea on the uncompressed SD capture possibilities?

Thanks.

If you are capturing SD by way of analog, you should be able to capture uncompressed at that point (I'm guessing on this). I don't know about HDMI. I get an uncompressed option with the NX. If they have changed how analog is captured this option may have been omitted.
But, it does have hardware down conversion, bypassing the cpu, for HD to SD transfers. This is nice.

There is enough bandwidth, so possible. If it's not there it could be added- or Canopus Lossless- great codec.

Not sure if it on this press release but the first information I have had on this is that you can buy it with and without EDIUS - like the SPARK - which is really useful.

All off topic posts will be removed.
The Storm Mobile is released, the product is as designed.

Any connection you might be missing in our Storm Mobile is most likely available in our Storm ELITE.

Really need to know
 
Steve,
I could really do with finding out if this can do uncompressed SD capture via the analogue composite in.

If so - this is REALLY gonna be great timing.

Thanks in advance
David

According to specs the doubted differences i see in HDStorm Plus and Storm Mobile is that Storm Mobile does not have a HQ encoder, and instead of monitoring audio out we have the headphone out + amplifier and of course the Hardware Downconversion. Can you please confirm that Storm Mobile does or does not have a HQ encoder built in? So no real-time ingesting like the HD Storm Plus.?

Or Simply put Storm mobile has Hardware Downconversion(real-time monitoring), Headphone out, Grass Valley HQ mode: 4:2:2 10-bit capture, without the Canopus HQ encoder chip. Am i correct?

The Storm Mobile does capture to HQ even without an HQ chip. It can also do more codecs - AVC-Intra and MPEG2, as well as Canopus HQX. It does not capture into uncompressed - for that you need an Elite or Storm 3G.

The down-conversion will produce an SD output at the same time as outputting HD through the HDMI. The down-converted footage is always 4:3 as far as I can see (so an HD timeline is automatically letter boxed by the Storm Mobile) but then most SD screens are 4:3 anyway. This is down-conversion on playback ONLY, it does not help when rendering to SD from and HD timeline or lets you input HD and capture as SD.

If you buy the external version (ie not the one that fits in a computer case) then it needs separate power - you get a PSU for this. However you only need the PSU when using a laptop, on a desktop you get cables so the box can be powered by the PC it is plugged into - nice IMO and nicer than other similar gizmos like the Matrox MX02 or AJA i/o Express (neither of these work with EDIUS but are the same kind of external device)
