I had my eye on this little beauty, the DVEO HD-SDI Master Quad PCIe.
It would take from the HD-SDI BNC out from the camera.  I do not know a
lot about this card yet because we do not have the official request to
start looking at things.  Just wondering if anyone that knows more than
myself would know if this would work.

Thats exactly the sort of issue that needs to be clarified before  
spending $2K. We has some small Sony cameras with HD available via  
HDMI connectors. We also have a more upmarket Sony with HD YUV  
available via 3x RCA connectors.
