Now you can have a Tally Light for your rig
Originally produced between 2000 and 2006, the Zalex™ Tally Light provided the solution to need for a Broadcast Camera tally light independent of any one sled or wiring design. This system employs an Ultra Bright red led that can be placed anywhere the individual Operator wishes.
Over 100 Zalex Tally Lights are already in use around the world.
A new production run is in process. Units are going to ship by October 20th, 2012.
Two designs are available. One is the Zalex Tally shown in the photo. The other one is the new Zalex- HR Tally. This design makes use of a spare Home Run video line in your sled, running the signal from top to bottom without having the cable exposed.
Custom designs are also possible, please email me with your request. For example, one cable news network recently purchased Zalex Tally systems for their hand-held cameramen to use for the upcoming Election Night coverage here in the United States. They all employ a 7" LCD TelePrompter mounted just above the lens. This monitor blocks the regular forward-facing Tally lights from the camera eyepiece. We created a solution and they will be in use for the hand-held crews from now on.
In addition to Broadcast use, many Operators make use of the Zalex Tally light to insure that their camera is recording when it should be, and is not recording when it should not be.
The Zalex Tally is $ 125.00.
The Zalex- HR Tally is $ 175.00
Worldwide Ground shipping included. Any expedited shipping additional.
Looking forward to helping out anyone seeking this affordable solution.
