I am thinking to buy hdmi to sdi converter. And I look and price and specific this, only $50 more and it has recorder function.
I want to connect fs100 hdmi to hyperdeck, then hdmi out to monitor and sdi output feed to atem tv studio.
Will this work?

Works, I do it all the time.
Think of it as a great converter, that comes with a free uncompressed recorder ;-)

One more thing, is it has to be SSD drive? I want to record a concert. It's gonna cost a oit if I have to use ssd

Thomas: a couple of things...
Yes, the drive NEEDS to be SSD.
By the time the video gets to your ATS, you are going to be VERY delayed, especially coming out of an FS100 which had some of the longest lag I have ever seen coming out of any output, digital or analog. The video is delayed at least 2 frames, based on my experience. Add another for hdmi to HD-sdi, and another for the frame store sync at the ATS.

do you mean the hyperdeck will have more delay than a normal hdmi-sdi converter?
June 20th, 2012, 07:21 PM
1 frame, same as any. Just a poor signal path choice if audio sync is important or if delay to a screen is important.

do you mean hyperdeck is 1 frame more delay than the normal converter?
coz i have a BM hdmi-sdi converter for sony fs100, now i need to buy another converter for canon xf100. I am looking into the hyperdeck because it's just $50 more than the converter.
if they are both 1 frame delay, i can just shift the audio from post

No ADDITIONAL delay but I don't think your cameras are going to be in sync. Again, the FS100 is the worst camera I have ever worked with in terms of how long it takes to get a signal out of it. The Canon is likely to be faster by several frames.

Is thie method easy to set up? How would you do it to record from HDMI out?
