Looking for RGBS Capture that wont break the bank....

Is there such an animal that will allow me to convert RGBS to firewire? I might even go SDI if I need to. I've found solutions in the many thousands of dollars range, but cant afford that.

Even if I could get it to YPbPr I could ingest it a lot easier. This is vexing me.

Please help! The interweb search engiens are either useless, or I'm useless at searching with them. Type in anything containing RGBS, and you get everything but. RGB, RGsB, RGBs, but very little RGBS unless it's just telling me what it stands for. Ugh...

Hi Andy............

Hmmm, well, it would probably be a good place to start by telling us where this RGBs signal is coming from, and why, exactly, you want to convert it to Firewire.

The device producing it must be quite unusual, as RGBs is very uncommon today - this thing an antique?

[Anyone who asks the same about me will be in serious trouble - OK?]

The only consumer stuff as offered RGBs, to my limited knowledge, is European, and even that is dissapearing at a great rate.

I've got a bunch of Sony CCU's and cameras that are older than the dirt that's collected on them... CCU-M3's and DXC-3000A cameras. They're still in mint working order and it's a shame that I have to do any capturing via composite video. A few friends at work and I have an idea to use them in a project, but that composite sync is vexing us. Nothing that I can find will take an RGB with composite sync. A hundred devices will turn existing signals INTO RGBS, but not the other way around.

If you're on a Mac the Blackmagic Video Recorder should work.
