Autocue Monitor question
Posted 30 December 2012 - 05:03 PM
Some times i have to use a autocue on my rig. I talked them out of the mirrow years ago, so i use a small 7 inch monitor above my lens. I believe its almost standard in the us?
Anyway, i feed it with a wireless signal. Or i use the canatrans i still have, or i use the camwave, that works great but is a little bit big. So i am working on a good solid SMALL reciever thing.
The monitor is attached to the camera using a israeli arm.
Its all working but not ideal. It moves a bit when running, so it needs to be lighter, and more rigid.
What do you guys use? Any special brackets? Wich monitor? Links, leads?
Thx a million

Slides onto Panasonic, Grass Valley, or Sony broadcast cameras in place of the viewfinder.
It's a tray that slides side to side. You can use it to place the Link or RF wireless Return/Program Receiver on it, or you can drill a 1/4" hole anywhere on the aluminum flat plate, and screw on your Prompter monitor. here are pictures....

I believe I have 3 left available, I'll make some more in Feb when I get back to town.

So does anyone know if any of the wireless ccu control systems send composite back to carry the autocue video back to the camera?
Or am I stuck with an extra composite video sender with a battery powered receiver and if so what would you guys reccomend.

You could use a Paralinx to send the signal back.
On a slight different way, depending on the prompter persons set up, there are a few iPad prompter systems out there, beamsplitter through the lens...

oh hi, its an old topic. I use the bolt for the prompter signal, works like a champ. The receiver's weight is almost nothing
