Help. Final Cut Pro BetaSP Deck Control Black Magic Question.

We are currently making the switch to hd and getting away from our old Avid system.

Our company has just bought a new Macpro and Final Cut Studio and i need to be able to layoff and capture from our beta sp decks to our new FCP system.
Our current deck is (UVW-1800 ) this is the deck that we want the ability to capture and layoff to.

We want the ability to capture and layoff to digibeta decks as well as beta sp decks.

We want to be prepared for future computer upgrades without buying a new I/O device.







My questions are:

1. What type of hardware do you recommend i get. internal or external?

(this is what i was thinking of getting)

OR

2. Are there cheaper alternatives? Such as an internal card?


Thank you.

Aja has internal cards in its Kona line.

The IoHD doesn't do uncompressed as far as I know.
