I ordered the Hyperdeck Studio SSD recorder/player to work in a mobile studio in conjunction with a Blackmagic Design ATEM 2 ME video switcher.
The Hyperdeck Studio has SDI and HDMI outputs with embedded audio, but no seperate audio outputs. The ATEM switcher strips incoming audio that's embedded on the sources.
So If I wanted to use video in a show with audio, I would have to find a way to deembed the audio from the Hyperdeck Studio. (and preferably still keep it synced to the video). Blackmagic Design has SDI deembedders in both miniconverter and opengear formats, but the costs are relatively high in comparison to the Hyperdeck Studio itself which sells for around € 650.
Will cheap HDMI to analog converters from ebay do the job? or will they have too much latency / too low quality.
And what's the audio connection type on the Blackmagic Opengear SDI to audio converters? I will mount the whole set in a flightcase and have a patch panel with XLR connectors. Where would I get the correct cable/plugs?
