Thread: HDMI conversion to YPbPr analog component

  1. #1

    HDMI conversion to YPbPr analog component

    New DSLR cameras from Canon (D5, D7) and Nikon (D90) output uncompressed HD video via HDMI connection. I know there are HDMI to SDI converters from AJA, Black Magic Design and others, but I haven't found any HDMI to YPbPr analog converters suitable for the component inputs on the SX BoB to the VT5.

    Any suggestions?

    Not only do you need a Digital to Analog converter you need something that would also scale it to 720x480. The best option is use one of these Gefen Boxes http://www.gefen.com/kvm/dproduct.jsp?prod_id=5271 it is a DVI to RGBs scaler. It's very easy to convert HDMI to DVI with a simple passive cheap adapter and plug it into this Gefen Box. This Gefen can also scale it to NTSC. We use these often at NewTek HQ and they work great.
