It won't work. The HDMI to SDI converter is not a scan converter and the output is not 59.94, it's 60 from the MacBook Pro. The Panasonic switcher won't lock up to 60. I had the exact same problem. It's not going to work.

It's funny that if you had the MUCH LESS EXPENSIVE Blackmagic ATEM switcher, you could have simply used an DVI to HDMI cable, and it would have locked up your MacBook Pro. BUT NOOOOO - you had to get the more expensive AW-HS50N.
for $3549,
as opposed to the ATEM Television Studio -
for $945.

So guess what, you now have to bo out any buy this -
for $995, and this will convert your Mac Book Pro DVI output to
HD-SDI for your Panasonic switcher.

Next time - think Blackmagic all the way.

ps -
and yes, even if you had the more expensive

you would have still had the same problem, unless you wound up
getting the Panasonic DVI option input card.
