We have a 5800 deck and we have too a tape HD 4:4:4, 1920x1080 24psf
Ok, we need record this tape HD to a Betacam digital PAL (DVW-500P), so i need to do a downcoverter to sd 4:2:2, 720x576 25f.
The 4:4:4 playback is a show-stopper. There is no work-around for that and there is no 4:2:2 on board conversion.
You will have to capture the media and then convert it. You can direct digitize through a Kona card to 4:2:2, but it will only down-convert to 525i29.97 or 525-23.98 (weird format) live. So then it will be either a hard or software conversion after that....
