HD component to HD-SDI converter

Hello,
I use a JVC JY-HD100e camcorder: it has an uncompressed HD analog component output, and I use an AJA Kona LH too. I need to import the HD component signal of the camcorder to the digital HD-SDI input of the AJA card (it has also the analog input, but I need a very long cable, so I can't use analog inputs).

I saw the classic AJA HD10A converter, that costs about 800 dollars.
Once, some months ago, I was looking for HD hardware and I found on a forum a thread where I read about very cheap converters (for about 50-100 dollars) that make useless the expensive converters.

I don't remember that site; is there anyone that could give me some advices?

Thank you.

Nicola,

Visit the Decklink website. They have a lot of that stuff and are usually less expensive than Kona.

I'm not aware of any converters that are cheaper than the AJA.

Why can't you use the analog again? Long cable runs? I think if you're going to be that picky about how you're going to get from A to B, you're going to have to pony up.

Ok, and that about the maximum cable length?
