Input from a PS3???
on Aug 29, 2008 at 1:19:35 pm

I have a BlueRay Disc that I need to get into Final Cut Pro.

I have 4 BlackMagic Multibridge Extremes and a Pro in house.

The PS3 seems to only have a composite output and an HDMI output.

I could go Composite into the BlackMagic, but I wanted better quality then that. I don't see an HDMI or DVI input on the BlackMagics, just Composite, Component and SDI.

Any Suggestions????


Thanks;

Hi Steve

As far as I am aware, the PS 3 should have a HD component output, which you can use to input into either of your Multibridges. You should be able to get the same quality as you would over HDMI, as you can do up to 1080i over HD component. You *can* get 1080p over HDMI for higher quality, but our products do not support the 1080 progressive formats.

Your further problem using HDMI will be the HDCP content protection from the PS3, as none of our HDMI based products will allow a content protected signal to pass through.

The current model Multibridge Pro 2 and Multibridge Eclipse both have HDMI input and output, whereas the older Pro 1 has only HDMI, and the Extreme has DVI output.

So I think your best solution would be to go component from the PS3 into your computer, through either of your Multibridges.
