I am looking to finally purchase the decimator, as an upcoming project is going to necessitate one. (Shooting on the epic, and I only have an SD monitor for now).
I am not 100% sure how the decimator works exactly, so I wanted to make sure I asked the right questions before jumping in.
1. How does the unit receive power?
2. Should I purchase the decimator 2, or try to find a used model 1?
3. What is the standard way of mounting the decimator to the rig - just velcro?
4. Is it simply BNC to BNC?
5. Are there other devices I may want to consider that perform the same functions? (I have heard the black magic updowncross is an alternative)
Thank you all!
