I am looking at buying an IO card for an XDCamHD project I am starting to cut. The footage was shot 1080 29.97p to give it a bit of the filmy look. It will be cut in HD but downconverted for an SD delivery.
In looking at the card specs it appears the Decklink Studio card does not support 1080 29.97p but the HD Extreme 3D does. Is that correct?
I am a little unclear about what is realtime. Basic color corrector is real time doing a 1080 29.97p downconvert to D1 SDI to digibeta?
Is downconvert real time mastering out from an XDCamHD sequence or am I going to have to convert the final cut to ProRes or something else?
Lastly, are there any advantages or disadvantages to the Decklink products vs. the Kona or Matrox products?
