    does anyone have experience outputing SDI video from jitter? i have had one client ask about it a couple times now and I am looking for some tips as I start to hash it out.
    Thanks!!

      Sure, the best way to do this is to get a DVI to HD-SDI converter, from either AJA or Black Magic Design or friends. This allows you to output using hardware acceleration from your GPU, but will be a valid rec 709 signal in professional HD land. You probably will want to verify this all on scopes, but thats the whole idea:
      or DVI to HDMI, to HD-SDI:
      good luck.

      I should note for clarity the DVI extender can be used simply as a DVI to HD-SDI extender with a software switch, according to the docs.
