PMS Video's SDI Solution - What is SDI? 

SDI (Serial Digital Interface) has been used in TV broadcasting station or other video related industry for a long time.  The advantage of using SDI is to transmite digital video data for a very long distance with extremely low error rate.  SDI Converter DIY Kit converts the decompressed DVD (MPEG2) data directly from the MPEG2 decoder inside a DVD player to SDI signal.  This signal is transmited through a BNC cable and captured by a SDI capture card.  The SDI data is converted back to a standard digital video signal which Dscaler can process.  Dscaler produces a processive video playback and scales it to the current resolution of the video card in a HTPC.  So you can have the highest quality movie enjoyment. 

The SDI (Serial Digital Interface) Capture Card is a standard PCI 2.1 input card, which can capture standard SDI video signal for further processing.  Thanks to the SDI technology, picture quality can be kept during data transmission for a long distance from a SDI source to the SDI capture card.  The combination of SDI Capture Card and the DScaler software turns a personal computer into a high performance digital video processor/scaler and delivers unprecedented high quality video in home theaters at a very reasonable price.
