I am on the process to build my editing system to work with HDV. I already have a camera Sony HVR-Z1, HVR-M15 VTR and a Mac Pro with FCP 5.1 and the basic NVIDIA GeForce 7300 GT video card which came along with the computer. Please, if someone can help me, I would like to know what would be the best choice of video capture card to work with HDV in the range of U$1500? Also, how can I get broadcasting sound and video quality from my HVR-M15 VTR as it has only Firewire, component O, composit I/O and RCA audio I/O connections? Would I need a converter to SDI?
Thanks in advance,
