Am I correct here -

The Decklink Studio series will do a 720 to 1080 upconvert, but will NOT do a SD to HD upconvert -

BUT

the Decklink HD Extreme WILL do a SD to HD upconvert.

Is this accurate (yes or no please).

I just looked at this to clarify. From what I can tell it will not do the 720p -> 1080i cross convert. That was a function of the older boards software converter which does not exist in the newer board.

But both Decklink Studio and HD Extreme 3 will do SD to HD up converts. There is one caveat. On the PC these boards will only up convert to 1080i59.94/50 where as on the Macs they will up convert to 1080i59.94/50 or 720p59.94/50

It is also worth noting the that Decklink HD Extreme 1 and 2 will do the 720p -> 1080i cross convert as well.

I am not sure if there are plans to add these feature back into the newer boards.

Sincerely,
