There are real-time HD over SDI capture solutions for the Mac. You'd need an RGB to SDI transcoder. Even then, I'm not sure if the SDI HD capture device would support resolutions other than 720p and 1080i. All of this stuff is pretty expensive.
What are you trying to capture?
Looks like there is no way to get SDI-HD into a mac (just SDI).
I am trying to record running video from PC/Linux/Sun machines. I want full resolution so I can edit, zoom in & crop during edit time & still get good resolution; downscanning at record time will ruin a lot of text on the screen and not allow me to have good clean images of just part of the screen.
So far, it looks like my best option is
Analog VGA -> DVI
DVI -> IEEE 1394, so it can be recorded by some device.
Except I can't find a DVI -> IEEE 1394 converter, but I am sure there is one out there.
Anyone see a flaw in that logic? Thanks.
