Matrox VS-4 Card System Specs.

I am about to build a new portable streaming system, and the VS-4 looks like the PERFECT solution. Any thoughts on the specs for a PC based system that will comfortably run with this with four cameras?

Personally, I'd be looking at a 6 Core Sandy Bridge Xeon processor at least. 12 Cores better.
It's conceivable a Quad Ivy Bridge i7 would work but that could be cutting it close depending on what else you'd need to be doing with the computer at the same time. Streaming, Recording, running Desktop Presenter grabbing some other program running, doing it all in HD.

That sounds reasonable to me. Any idea what the price will be?

Any advantages to using this over the Black Magic equivalent?

VS4 is $1500 list I believe. Some places like B&H might sell it for less. It's not listed there yet. Supposedly the VS4 also allows each source to be recording individually, something the Blackmagic Quad card can't do.
