Hello everyone,

I'm currently working on a tv series in Cairo . Were shooting with sony 900's and using a marrel
microwave transmitter. The picture quality is so-so. I was wondering if I used my modulus 3000 and
a hermes pal receiver, would the picture be better? There isn't any pal tuners here that I have found. Seems like the 3 operators here only use microwave. How big would the frame delay be? If this has
been disgussed before, please forgive me. All help is appreciated . thanks, Rick Drapkin


P.S. Has anyone had the chance to use the new hd transmitter from Transvideo ?

Hi Rick,

the F900 has a delay on the SD output of around 5 frames, the modulus and receiver part can add one frame more. You should be able to get a PAL receiver from any rental house in Europe.....Try Arri Munich or contact Transvideo in France.

Hi Jens,

Thanks for the info. I'll call Noel at transvideo and buy one....I'll have him ship it thru their france
office to save on export taxes.
