I have been testing the prototype for quite some time! I can't comment on power issues as i never pOwer cameras from my batteries except my own 2/3'hd broadcast camera, but with prototype v4 i did not have any hd/sdi issues, seems to be working great!

Hi Alan,
Yes, I just upgraded my V2 to V4.
Rock solid so far.

Has 2x HDSDI's up the post + a composite video with distribution amp built in.
Yesterday i ran a 12v camera, 2 x monitors, 1x SDI digital transmitter and 1x BOXX receiver (dont ask...! ) , 2x Dionic 90's, all no problems.

The post cable connectors are now also proper HDSDI spec LEMO connectors with shielded connectors (which was the problem with previous versions I believe...)
I also tested transmitting a Motorola radio next to it all over the electronics and no breakup.

Hey AJ,
How much for the upgrade to the V4? I got the V3.5 to solve the Motorola issue but it's good to know how much the latest version is.
Cheers,
Nic
