Component to HDMI converter - Where to rent?

Anywon know if I can rent a Component to HDMI converter device anywhere in LA area?

I have a Blackmagic Intensity board (non-pro version) and i need to capture from an XHA1 over its Analog component output then convert that to HDMI so my INtensity can capture it uncompressed (or MotionJPEG) for greenscreen.

A company called Cypress in Taiwan have them with and without built in scalers. I would think that the purchase of the Chinese technology is close to the price of renting.

Just for some reference purposes I can suggest this website

http://www.converters.tv/

They serve as an excellent reference site for what is available in the marketplace. You may be able to find a product on that site and then you may be able to find a more local source.

It might actually be more cost effective to simply purchase a Black Magic Intensity Pro card, than rent something to convert component to HDMI (not to mention being a lot easier).
