Capturing 1080p from PC
on Sep 12, 2009 at 10:08:23 am

Hi,

I am trying to capture my desktop display at 1080p @ 60 using a Decklink HD Extreme and the new 7.3 driver/firmware.

My main PC is equipped with a GTX 280, that is connected to the capture PC with a DVI -> HDMI cable.

Unfortunately, I do not get a signal through at 1080p - it only works when I switch to 720p.

Is 1080p capture only possible when using SDI?

Would I need a Quadro GFX card with SDI out to do this?

I noticed that the manual mentions something called "Video Desktop". Does that mean that the primary PC be equipped with another Decklink card, that can then output the desktop video signal to the capture PC via SDI? Does this only work on XP (as stated in the manual)?

I have finally managed to get a 1080p signal through from my PC, but unfortunately this seems only to be possible @ 24p..
