I am trying to play Playstation 3 games on my computer and I am looking to see what the Blackmagic Intensity Pro will allow.
I have tried several products including:
ATI Video capture card
and a few others
None of these work well. ATI looks good, but it runs on a 3 second delay… terrible for gaming. The gamebridge plays well, but the resolution is terrible.
Is it possible to play PS3 games through the Blackmagic Intensity Pro in 1080?

My goal is also to record the PS3 at 1080 using component cables. As mentioned elsewhere on this forum, capturing from a PS3 using component cables to a Blackmagic Pro does not work with HDMI (unless you are a developer and have an expensive dev kit), only component (and I’m assuming composite, not that you’d want to do that). I have a support ticket out right now where a support tech tells me that 1080i through composite will work, but so far I’ve been unable to make anything but regular low-res NTSC work.

Oh…you can’t do 1080i through composite or S-video. Only Component.
And yes..in order to capture HDMI from the PS3 you have to have a development console. That’s because the PS3 has HDCP turned on always…no matter the content.
Hope that clears up any confusion.

For console recording, I often set the console to record to 720P on component.
The progressive scan makes certain things look nicer and I generally have less to finesse when I finish the project.
Composite is only for old legacy systems outputting NTSC signal, and the Wii 🙂
