I was wondering if anyone has looked into using a Black Magic Designs Decklink Device with a Watchout PC. (Such as the BMD Decklink HD Extreme)

This would help me with several issues:
Older video cards in several of our display computers
Lossy input video from Analog video input cards
VGA - RGBH/V conversion to 'Video formats' such as SD/HD SDI, YPbPr

My questions are thus:
Can the BMD card be utilized as an output device for Watchout, using SD/HD-SDI, along with an simultaneous Analog XLR Audio output, and a simultaneous SD/HD-SDI input for "live cues" inside of Watchout?

Obviously this is a capital investment, which is why I wanted to see if it has been attempted before.

Thanks for your help,

You would get more replies to your questions at the Watchout Showroom forum. Quite a few Decklink users there, not sure of model though.
