Having been a long time user of Edirol products (and I have never had a bad one) I can see no reason why the 440HD wont suit you down to the ground.

http://www.edirol.com/index.php?opti...=33&Itemid=385

It will accept and output HD and SD signals out of the box for about $12,000 US as opposed to the Anycast's $17,500 which will not deal with HD signals out of the box.

If you want the title generation the Edirol will accept input from a common PC/Laptop SXGA HD15 signal. As for recording/encoding you can either use the SD signals via a trusty canopus ADVC55/100/whatever analogue > firewire converter (my preference for SD at the moment as it records direct to DV with open source software) or any other video capture card in a regular PC or Mac. HD signals are also catered for with something like the Black Magic Intensity http://www.blackmagic-design.com/products/intensity/ or do a forum search for how others are using theirs.

Basically it comes down to this the $12k V-440HD + $5k PC/Mac gear will cost you the same as a stock Anycast, will do HD Mixing, Recording and Encoding for web where as the Anycast will only do SD.

Go buy the Edirol, you wont be disappointed.
