Yem, Astro Systems, and Panasonic make HD parallel to serial converters. By
the way, it is important to be aware that there are three different pinouts
of 50 pin serial cables:  Philips/Sony 10 bit, Panasonic 10 bit, and
"generic" 8 bit.  The 8 bit version grounds pins used in the 10 bit
version. The Sony/Philips differ from the Panasonic in the pin assignments
for the LSBs and some of the grounds.  Properly wired cables are essential.
Yem makes a PSC292M that has two Parallel to Serial converters in one box
(great for feeding a daVinci 2K) it also supports all anticipated potential
formats (like 1080 24P).  So far, I've found the Yem to be the most cost
effective and best performing option.
