splitter/downconverter for low-budget multicam
Posted 23 January 2011 - 06:21 PM
Since the HVX200 doesn't have a simultaneous HD component and SD composite output, I will need a splitter/downconverter in order to feed my composite SD Flyer monitor (alternatively I am considering swapping out my sled monitor for an HD monitor that I own, which has HD component inputs. Alas, no loop-through.) In that scenario, I would need a splitter/proc amp that would properly split the signal without degradation.
This could very well be a one-off situation so my inclination is to try to rent rather than buy. I'd welcome and appreciate any suggestions/solutions/cautions/sources that anyone has.

What's about the composite return from the video switcher?
I think HVX200 has an additional composite out as an option.
Check to see if the one you are going to use has it.

If so, maybe this is a potential solution:
Wherever you rent it from, make sure it comes with the HD10AVA cable. I think that would give your SD monitor an SD signal (so long as it accepts SDI), and tether with HD-SDI. Only additional bit is to find a power cable for your sled.

I Will PM you with some menu pictures.

If you could switch to a 170, they can output composite and component at the same time, according to a few things I've found. If you're stuck with the HVX, you could get a component video DA and a component to composite downconverter, but you're looking at over $100 in parts, not to mention the hassle of mounting and powering all that.
