Can anyone point me to a solution to get a Y/C (S-Vid) connection out of my DecklinkSP? I have seen the Aja D4e but was hoping somebody knew of something cheaper.

Thanks!

I'm not entirely sure of this and someone who knows can say for certain, but ...
If one were to 'combine' the R-Y and B-Y outs into one and take the Y as one and then 'shoe-horn' these into a S-video jack. Y as Y and R-Y and B-y combined into one as C you should have Y/C.

Right? Again, I'm not sure. In fact I'm not even sure if tryong this out would damage your SP card.

And where would the green come from? You can't do it this way.

[Jeff Bernstein] "And where would the green come from? "

FYI - It is possible to have green if you have red and blue available, how do you think Y, Y-"R" and Y-"B" work?

and Neil you do have some interesting theory but it's not gonna happen like that. Think of S-video more like native television format. Basically instead of routing CVBS on a single carrier, what you have is Luminance (VBS) and Croma (C - colour information) seperately. This way croma doesn't have to piggy back Y (luma), which also means that Y gets full bandwidth. and we get better sharper video and better colours.

Digital motion, don't even bother to convert composite to Y/C, you will still be looking at composite quality. Best would be to have component monitor.

Cheers

If you follow the thread, the poster referenced a bunch of simple cables with no active electronics. Of course you can get Green from YUV, but not without some active electronics.

All you need is a cable, not a converter.

Thanks for the input guys- but a few questions for Mike and Jeremy. Mike- which converters specifically do you refer to on your weblink? All I really see are S to RCA adapters. And Jeremy, how exactly does this cable interface with the decklink? The Y (of Y/C) I assume will come from the Decklink Y, but what about the chroma? How do I get the Y-B and Y-R signals combined?

For a little more clarification- again what I am trying to accomplish is Component Y, Y-R, Y-B OUTPUT from the decklink to S-Vid (Y/C) INPUT on my 9" pro monitor (much higher quality than using the Y cable in composite mode -which I am currently using)

Thanks!

Jon

Nevermind, decklink doesn't support S-Video out.

You'll need some sort of box or deck.
