The latest and greatest HDMI specification is 1.4a (and version 2 is expected to be released this year). The fastest/highest bandwidth category of HDMI cable is "HDMI with Ethernet." The rating of a cable's shielding (Class 2, Class 3) has more to do with fire resistance and US wiring code and is not really relevant to the matter of signal loss. ...

For amateur events, SDI may be overkill compared to using simple Component. The key for long runs is to separate the various components so that they don't degrade. There is a similar question here about long distance runs. As for HDMI to SDI, there should be no quality loss compared to HDMI as both are digital formats supporting full uncompressed HD ...

Native resolution is always better than non-native. If it only has a resolution of 720p, then it would have to be down-converting to that resolution which means it has to blend pixels which can produce artifacts from the pixel blending. (Notably, softer edges is the most likely.) Update: I'm sorry, re-reading, I noticed that it isn't native for either ...

You can probably do it directly through the EOS software. It is possible to get a live video stream from the camera over the USB connection. Note that USB2 is not going to be able to carry a full quality HDMI stream though. This is why the Intensity is USB3. It requires USB3 because the bandwidth requirements for the quality level it is working at ...

What solved the problem: Check your capture software settings. All settings (your monitor/capture device settings, your hardware settings and the settings in your capture software) should be correct and equal. What can help track down similar issues: Very likely a framerate issue. Only the 4K version of the Blackmagic Capture cards supports 60FPS and your ...

According to the specs on the Canon site your camera can record in 50i/p and 25p 1920x1080. Are you absolutely sure you can only get 60fps on the HDMI? Because that sounds rather weird that you get more FPS on the HDMI than the camera can actually record. If you set the recording option to 25FPS normally on canon cameras the FPS should also apply to the ...

The GoPro would be a perfect candidate for what you want. It's a so called "action camera" and is a very robust (water tight with case) wide-angle camera that can shoot in very high frame rates with HD resolution (even more at lower frame rates). Suitable recording options for high speed sport events would 1080p @ 60FPS or 720p @ 120FPS. The camera also has ...

There are a plethora of capture cards on the market in that general price range from numerous manufacturers. There are two main things to worry about with these devices. First, for analog inputs, such as component video, you need to consider the quality of the analog to digital converters as well as what capabilities they have for scaling and format. ...

I've found an answer to my specific problem that's a little ugly, but might be of some use. The basic premise is to ensure that the first device in the chain does not support (or is capable of disabling support for) HDCP. Macs and iOS devices are opportunistic when it comes to HDCP; they'll always attempt to negotiate it, but will fall back to unencrypted ...

A 1.4 cable should work fine with a 1.3 signal, however an HDMI 1.4 signal will not work with an HDMI 1.3 cable or an HDMI 1.3 output unless the source is capable of using a prior standard.

At the present the highest category of HDMI cable shielding is Category 2

Pretty simple actually--running the signal through most HDMI splitters seems to work just fine. I can't be sure if this is a feature of all splitters, but Iv'e got two different models/brands of HDMI splitter and I can record HDMI just fine with 'em.

You would need a device that supports HDCP if your output source is utilizing it. That's the entire point of the system. The video signal is encrypted and will only exchange the data with a device which can cryptographically authenticate itself as an authorized HDCP receiver. Getting that certificate requires proving that they are going to follow the rules ...

It isn't really clear what you are asking here. The 23.9 frame rate is most likely 23.976 which is the more accurate standard frame rate for 24fps. This shouldn't result in a stutter. It is possible that your computer is simply not powerful enough to play the video smoothly. Are you trying to capture from both the Intensity and the MX02 at the same ...

Are you sure that the Lenovo and 2011 MacBook support HDMI out via their displayPort? Native DisplayPort signals are not compatible with HDMI. What a DisplayPort to HDMI adapter actually does is simply put a DisplayPort that supports HDMI signaling in to the appropriate mode to send an HDMI signal, but it is not a required part of the DisplayPort standard. ...

Depending on how the switch is designed, it might not be sending the DDC signal back to the computers when the switch isn't set to point to them, and this could be confusing the cable-detection logic on the output ports. When you switch the switcher to the Mac, try using the Mac's "detect displays" button (on the Displays control panel) to see if it comes ...

There are no real differences between HDMI 1.3 and 1.3b so I would blame either the switch (most likely), the cables (do you have the correct ones for each device), or even the configuration settings on each machine. If you plug each one into the projector individually do they work? If so, it is your switch that is at fault. If not, try replacing the ...

1 - No, you will need more than one card. 2 - It's entirely dependant on your motherboard, but where i work we have 2 Black Magic Intensity Pro cards, and they do an excellent job of capturing HD footage over HDMI. They are also relatively cheap, so would suit your needs. They also allow you to run multiple cards in a single system.

The cheapest boards i know: the elgato game capture HD. the BMD Intensity series. In that price-category you will need one board per camera. You don't need additional HDMI- or FiWi-cards. These boards can capture via HDMI, so there are ports for that signal. Edit: Yes, this boards can capture the audiosignal too.
