Convergent Design Media Converter with Producer?
on Nov 22, 2006 at 4:23:39 pm

Since I don't want to get a new G5 (I already have a good Dual 2.0), I was thinking about getting a Convergent Design bidirectional media converter to use with Producer. Does anyone think this would be a viable alternative for getting Beta & SDI out of and into Media 100?

Hi,

Maybe it'll work.

But Producer will only get a 25Mbps signal, that is MiniDV, DVCAM, DVCPro, 4:1:1 -NTSC- (4:2:0 in PAL) quality. Same goes out. So, there goes the high quality of your image if you are using i.e. 50Mbps 4:2:2 Digital Betacam.

I believe, I'm not completely sure, the Media Converter takes care of the Control Protocol and Time Code signals, so Producer will 'see' your Beta deck as a FireWire deck.

HTH,

Regards,

Juanjo
