  3. Hi All, I Have Stedicam Pilot VL, and would like to know if its possible to upgrade the internal wiring to a lemo connection so i can power and use my RED Monitor and power the camera (RED Scarlet Dragon) from the Stedicam bottom mounted Battery. Has anybody been able to upgrade their rig, or know where to order parts and cables ( Maybe from a higher end Stedicam) that can be retrofitted to my Pilot. Running the cables off the camera is pretty tricky to operate, and having v lock battery on the camera is just overkill with weight. Im in Australia. My Stedicam only has sd connection and dc power connectors thanks for your help in Advance. Daz Sticky Productions Melbourne, Australia
  4. Hello, How difficult/ what is the process for re-wiring a Master series sled to support HDSDI? Maybe even swap out the 4 pin HiROSE to be all 2 pin LEMOs and throw on another Aton plate to the front of the K section too. I plan on keeping this sled for a few years so upgrading it is not a option, just wanted to try and bring it up-to-date. It all seams like a challenge over my head, is there anyone to be recommended for this in the LA area? Trying to know what i am getting into before I make the first step. Thanks.

  12. Hello everyone, I have an Flyer LE which is the 12/24 model with a 19lbs weight range. That I have been using for a year and half now. It's has been great and more recently since I have found some steady work to use it with it. The thing I wanted to ask was about rewiring the sled to HD. I have the original monitor that came with the flyer and I've wanted to swap it out for a newer monitor maybe one I can add a yolk to it. Though I know that steadicam has a proitiary 9-pin connector which doesn't allow me to use anything esle.. A few things I'm unsure of is if I rewire the sled would I loss value in the rig or gain it? Also is there way to rewire it so that I can use original flyer monitor incase of a backup? I know many monitors have either a 4 pin xlr like the marshalls and I know the small HD's have a different plug in which to power them. So I figure I could get a cable to power either of them through a p-tap connector. Please correct me if I am wrong. I've been operating for a year and half now and I'm still learning. I was curious if there are anyone else that does rewiring I'm located in NY. I have contact some people though are busy at the moment though it would be great if anyone knew anyone else. Thank you all! Hope everyone has a great 4th of July.
  13. Hi, Some of you may know me as a fellow steadicam operator. Since a few months i am colaborating with Rebotnix Technologies, a uprising german company for wireless video solutions. After a long time of development and testing we are happy to release the unique long range wireless video system RB-2. A goal was to unify as many features one might need working on broadcast and feature film sets in one single system. Just to name a few: - up to 900 meter range (with standard omni-directional antennas) in line of sight - over 1.5 km range using patch antennas (we did not test that distance to its limit yet. -we will update that information as soon as we found enough space to do that :) ) - 40ms delay (1 frame @25fps) - full duplex intercom audio connection - timecode transmission (coming soon) - 3G-SDI - FullHD (no downsampling or similar processings) - Multicast on as many Receivers as you need - Multicast on tablets (Android only, Ipad coming soon) or computers (WiFi enabled, PC/MacOS) in full 1080 included (no additional hardware needed) - V-Lock battery plates (AB Lock coming soon) For further details please check out the Rebotnix RB-2 product page. http://rebotnix.com/?page_id=2735 Here is a range test video we shot a few days ago: If you are interested in the RB-2 System or if you are missing some features don't hesitate to contact us. We are looking forward to receive your feedback soon. Best regards from Germany, Karsten Jäger
  14. I know you guys like zero delay systems, but Serv offers a whole new experience for on-set monitoring. The Teradek Serv is a groundbreaking camera-back and tabletop HD-SDI transmitter that allows your clients and production staff to view every shot in real-time on their smartphones and tablets. Serv supports up to 10 connections at a single time and transmits both HD and SD video & audio in perfect sync over dual band WiFi. Since Serv utilizes WiFi networks, you can easily extend its range by adding any standard dual band router to your setup. But what about latency on my phone or tablet? Don’t sweat it. Serv transmits at just 4 frames of delay and is compatible with Teradek’s TeraView application, which lets you view and record up to 4 live feeds simultaneously on your iPad or Samsung Galaxy Pro Tablet at the same 4 frame latency. But TeraView must cost something, right? Nope! Its absolutely free. The application also supports 3D LUT filetypes, allowing you to transform your live video feeds into a gorgeous post-production look. Even better, you can load any custom 3D LUT filetype by connecting your Serv and smartphone or tablet to the same IP network video village utilizes. Serv will be showcased along with our other products at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB), from April 7-10, 2014 at Booth C8218.

The Steadicam Zephyr comes standard with a 7 inch, 16:9/4:3 composite NTSC/PAL LCD monitor, or optional 7 inch 16:9/4:3 HD/composite LCD monitor that features enhanced image quality and a wide viewing angle, even under bright sunlight making it ideal for field production use. Input configurations include: Analogue NTSC/PAL Composite/S-Video/Component/RGB and HD/SDSDI (SMPTE-274M, 296M, 260M, 125M) with active loop through.

The stage comes complete with a dual axis vernier adjustable mounting platform and extended camera mounting dovetail plate. The Zephyr Sled Base features extendable rigid aluminum monitor and battery mounting rods, easily removable for compact storage or transport.

  19. Hi everyone! I'm searching for a wireless HD transmitter / receiver to transmit uncompressed HDTV and video data up to 1080p with a realtime transmission feature of <1ms latency and a robust signal transmission. Someone recommends the SRI WHDI Module No.1 from a german company, see link http://www.sri.de/en/products/industry-pcs/prod/whdi-modul-no-1/extb/Main/ Does anybody has experience with this module? I heard, that they provide samples to test. Has anybody used this possibility and can give feedback?
  20. I am selling the GPI PRO Cinema HD Upper and Lower Junction Boxes. Will only be sold as a set. They are the Cinema HD (formally HD-Upgrade) electronics housings. These Have the Tally Option . And the Lower electronics housing has 12 volt out on the recorder lemo, instead of the 5v or 9v of the past. I use this to feed SD video and power a program monitor for live broadcast shows. I will include a Tally cable for the top that I had Terry custom make that has the sensor, as well as two other LED lights op top, so you can tape the sensor to the camera, and tape an LED to the top or bottom of your Lens shade/Mattebox, and have another LED to place on the side of the camera facing you while you operate so if your looking up when your camera goes live, you can react faster. At the bottom is a Cable that has a 90 deg Lemo for the bottom of the sled and a Bright LED you can tape or Velcro to the top of your monitor. Both Housings are in perfect working order. Condition is like new. You can purchase an HD Center Post cable from PRO for $665 and you're good to go. Pro sells the Cinema HD set for $5165 + $800 for Tally Option, Terry charged $250 to make the top and bottom Tally Cables, So we're talking $6215 plus shipping. Price for everything is $4700 and is available for immediate shipping. Located in Miami, prefer local sale. Will ship international at buyer's expense. I accept cash. I can also accept a credit card/PayPal payment with a 3% transaction fee. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Email me off the forum for a faster reply. Ozzie@silverafilm.com

You can pick it up or I will ship it anywhere (add shipping cost). Thank you for your interest. Lukas ( Transvideo, Recorder, Batteries and ALEXA are NOT included! ;-) )
  23. As more and more HD digital cinema cameras are trickling out, so too is the market growing for accessories and tools to work with those cameras. Inevitably, the question of backwards compatibility and multi-use comes up: does that onboard recorder receive SD? SDI? What tools do I need to make it work as many places as possible? Since I get a few questions from time to time (and I seem to be the resident geek, what with Afton working and being a Dad and all), I thought I'd write up a small primer. Let's start in the past: the film cameras you're (probably) accustomed to working with had a video tap that gives analog video, or composite video. Read the following if you're a REAL nerd: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Composite_video Composite video is an analog signal, as in it's a modulated video signal carried over the cable from camera to your monitor. As a modulated signal, it's susceptible to attenuation, noise, interference, etc. Otherwise, the signal itself IS the video. Since it attenuates over distance, often times weak signals were amplified by adding a video distribution amplifier to "beef up" the strength of the signal. As the wiki article says, let's called this CVBS. Now, we have all these fangled HD digital cinema cameras, and usually their monitor or video outputs HD (some cameras don't have a specific "MONITOR" feed, so we just tap one of the video outs). Now, the camera itself is digitizing the image, sending the video to internal storage as well as video outputs. They come out in a format called HD-SDI. HD-SDI is digital signal, in that it is not a modulated signal like CVBS, but rather a stream of data whose signal constitutes a transmission of images. To use a household analogy, your old school telephone line is an analog signal. Your internet connection, ethernet cables, etc are a digital signal. So, HD-SDI signal carries an HD video image, and connects to an HD-SDI input on a monitor, recorder, or some other bulkhead jack with a receiver in mind. To any receiver not expecting a serial digital interface signal, it won't know what to do it and disregard the signal. Likewise, to any receiver expecting a modulated signal, be it NTSC, PAL or SECAM, it won't know what to do with an SDI signal and ignore it. Now, for some confusion: SDI, being a digital signal, can carry standard definition much like it can carry high definition. The signal carries less data, but it's a digitized signal all the same. Lots of accessory manufacturers sell things and say, "Yes, our product transmits/records/handles SD as well as HD!" Technically, they're not wrong. Yes, that device does transmit/record/handle standard definition, but they handled it in a digital format: NOT CVBS. Their product is already set up to handle a digital interface, regardless of the resolution. What their product is generally not set up to do is handle an analog signal (unless they specifically say that it does). Most of us think of our world in HD or SD: HD means HD-SDI and SD means CVBS. What we're thinking of is 2 different technologies, but in our heads, it's just a video feed. Many accessories out there will say, "Yes, we do SD!" and we think it to mean "Sweet, I can use this on my film camera jobs with an SD video tap as well as my Alexa jobs!" IT DOES NOT. Products I've seen that are misleading in this way include: Decimator MD-DUCC - Specifically says it cross-converts SD to HD, HD to SD, HD to HD, SD to SD... but in actuality, it only does all those cross conversions in SDI. Yes, it still has HD to SD down-converting, but even I made the mistake thinking it would convert CVBS to HD-SDI. Nope. Atomos Samurai - a few operators have told me that the Atomos people have told them it records SD. Again, that's correct... it records standard definition when inputed as SDI. No, it does not demodulate an NTSC analog signal, convert it to digital and then store it. Switronix Recon - I think a few operators bought one, expecting it to transmit SD. Yes, it transmits SD-SDI, but not CVBS. To my knowledge, one of the few transmitters I know that transmit CVBS and HD-SDI is the Boxx Meridian. Just some thoughts to keep with you this Christmas shopping season, as well as going into this digital future we're facing. If you're considering buying a tool or accessory, and it has anything to do with the video signal, MAKE SURE you ask the sales rep to distinguish if it works with CVBS, SD-SDI and HD-SDI. p.s.- I kinda hate the new post editor. What does it leap back 5-10 words randomly when I hit backspace!?!
