Not really come up til now. We are supplying footage to a stock house. Capturing from Beta SP thru KONA LHe and we are seeing black at the very edge of frame (6-10 pix) way outside of safe but a no go for the stock house. Is this the nature of capturing thru analog input? Codec does not seem to matter.

This is typical of many Beta SP cameras, and more than a few miniDV cameras.

So, is there any way (other than a resize following capture) to get this material digitized without this issue (SDI converter etc...) ?

That's the nature of the analog game and the perfect use of the overscan.

Couldn't agree more. Its just these guys aren't buying footage with "the black bars on the sides" oh well, guess we won't be selling them any of our beta stock from the last 20 years...

You could probably run it through a high end scan converter and scale through most of that. Might lose a bit of quality, though.

Sorry, but it's baked into your picture by the camera.
