If you're using older analog Betacam SP decks, then DeckLink SP is specifically designed for that job. It features analog component YUV video input and output, with analog balanced XLR audio. DeckLink SP also includes unbalanced AES out, 10 bit SDI output for digital mastering, genlock input and RS-422 control. All connections are on a long 2 meter, 7 foot break out cable for a direct to deck connection. Now available in standard PCI-33/66 or PCI Express models.
All DeckLink cards have the same powerful features, with only the video and audio connections different between models. There is a DeckLink model specifically designed with connectivity for different types of broadcast decks, so you get only what you need at the most affordable price.
