Hi Aaron,

It depends on how the HDMI 3D output is implemented on the consoles. If they are sending out frame packed HDMI 1.4 3D, then the answer is no. HD Extreme 3D in its current form will not be able to capture that.

If it's side by side, line by line, top and bottom 3D that is in the 1920x1080 frame raster, then it's just like normal video so we can do it right now.

1080p60 support in HD Extreme 3D is dual link HD-SDI in 4:2:2 color space. Intensity Shuttle is capable in hardware of 1080p support (also 4:2:2) but until the USB host chips catch up in terms of bandwidth, it won't do it right now. The moment that bandwidth limitation is overcome, Intensity Shuttle will do it.

We've never done 8-bit RGB support because it was never an issue before. In the TV world, the most common formats are 8-bit YUV, 10-bit YUV and 10-bit RGB. Can we do 8-bit RGB? We could potentially, so I'll speak to the guys here and see what we can do. As usual, no promises.
