I was operating this weekend and my Transvideo monitor started scrambling while standing by for the shot. It happened again and I quickly realized it was when my AC was receiving a call from the walkie talkie. He was within arms reach. I asked him to change channels, try again, and I again lost my feed but it was up immeditaly after releasing the push-to-talk button. It was both when calling and receiving.
I did not have a wireless system on board. Camera was an epic and the path of the signal was camera-breakout-sled-monitor-recorder. There was also a sync box pluggin TC into the breakout.
Sled is a cinelive if that is pertinent. The walkies were standard fare and were open (no surveillance, earpieces, whathaveyou)
Does anyone have any specifics as to why this would occur? I read through another post (http://www.steadicam...r +interference) regarding interference from an operators cable to the PA system. Was I experiencing the same in reverse? Is there a way to combat this?
My BNC cables are of the standard lot from the wall at filmtools. Beefy but maybe middle of the road. There were no "unnecessary" breaks (eg barrels etc) in the signal
