HDV/DV to HD/SD-SDI Solution

An HDV/DV to HD/SD-SDI converter was announced by Convergent Design yesterday. It's called HDV-Connect. It was displayed at NAB, but somehow most of us missed it. At $2495, and with a size of 12"x7"x1.7" it won't be a mobile, affordable solution for cost-effective use of the HD100 uncompressed 720p60 component output, but it seems to be another viable option for a piece of the puzzle in creating a workflow for using the HD100's uncompressed 720p60 output with a RAID array, etc.

I don't believe the HDV Connect box INPUTS component, I believe it can only input HDV via the 1394 connector. From there, it will OUTPUT HD-SDI and component, so for uncompressed, this box won't do as the 1394 stream has MPEG-2 compression.

For more info - here's the announcement from a few weeks ago:

Mike is correct, the only INPUT to the HDV Connect is Firewire. Then you get component out, SDI out, DVI out, and 1394 pass thru.

Oh well - close but no cigar. If it had component inputs and outputs, and could pass through uncompressed data to the HD/SDI bus, it could have potentially filled the filled the converter gap for an uncompressed workflow. It's probably just a matter of a short time before some enterprising converter company sees this viable need and creates such a converter. Hopefully it will be small and affordable...

You never know what the guys in Colorado are gonna do....HDV Connect is a brilliant little box, so is the SDConnect. I've installed several SD Connects in places like ABC/Nightline, WFAA Television, KUTV, and other broadcast houses, plus several post places. They're stuff rocks.
Wouldn't it be cool to see the SD Connect be HD capable? One can only hope.
