We just purchased a Blackmagic Extreme box to interface with our KiPro. We intend to go from a camera/switcher to the KiPro to the Intensity and into my MacBook Pro (17" i7 running Snow Leopard) then into Livestream Procaster to stream to our website for live coverage.
So far we've only been able test from a Handycam outputting 720p. No matter what configuration I program into the KiPro (In Convert and Out Convert) I can almost always get video but the audio is always muddy and distorted. Plugging the camera directly in to the Intensity gives perfectly good audio. It's clear that the KiPro isn't communicating right with the Intensity.
Has anybody used a similar setup and how did you get it to work? I'll also post this on the Blackmagic Forum.
I should add that I've been trying to do all of this through the HDMI ports. When sending the audio out through RCA the Intensity processes it just fine. For some reason it doesn't like the embedded HDMI audio.
