Is it possible to get HD-SDI video directly out from a Raspberry Pi (via breakout board or something)?
I have seen an Arduino SDI camera controller, but I am looking for video out. I have also found a couple of SDI - USB capture, but that is not what I am looking for at the moment. I know I could just use a Black Magic HDMI - SDI converter, but I am looking for something I could come straight out of the hardware with.
This would replace the HDMI. I do not want to use a converter to go from HDMI to SDI.
Has anyone done this and/or could point me in the right direction?
The application is a video decoder (and possibly an encoder in the future) that would decode RTMP and send out via HD-SDI with very low latency. FFMPEG/FFPLAY gets me real close at ~500ms latency over ethernet (from phone to streaming server in AWS to Raspi player). Not bad for a sub $100 decoder. Stream is 1280x720 @ 1.3 Mbs + audio for anyone interested.
