The BE-75 can only output 10bit, but internally uses 12bit processing to maintain signal accuracy.
Are you using AVIsynth+ ver3.6.? Sounds like you need to update QTGMC as well if you are still...

I believe you are correct about the chroma resolution, but I think it is only for the horizontal direction. Vertically the chroma resolution is half the Y resolution. Capturing at 4:2:2 IS...

I am extremely happy with my BE-75. Even more so now that I am able to do all post processing in 16 bit 4:4:4 ( AVIsynth+ is fully capable of this now).

Do you only have a laptop?
I had a quick look and couldn't find a USB to SDI.

The BE-75 is fully 12 bit with TBC engaged. The DPS575 is 8 bit with TBC engaged.

I think the Magewel appears to most likely only 8 bit.

As discussed above the BE-75 has better quality but may not be as stable for reclocking video from damaged tapes.
The BE-25 would also be equally as suitable for SD NTSC/PAL that you require.
