I just wanted to write up a short review of a not well known, at least to me, product. The Betz Tools external level sensor for the Transvideo Cinemonitor HD line of monitors.
 
http://www.betz-tool...onic-bubble.php
 
I found myself being used to having the build in PDL in my Ultimate 1 sled. After switching to HD and the Transvideo HD6 monitor, I was looking for an near post mounted external level, for the obvious reasons.
 
Betz Tools in Munich offered exactly what I needed. The level sensor is "plug and play" with the Cinemonitor HD6.
 
It has five settings for each Angle (resolution) and speed (reactivity/dampening), a simple memorized "Zero" function and "direction" reverse for low mode.
 
It utilizes the Transvideo software and hardware, Avenger leveler needs to be enabled. You can select from a variety of display look options and position the "level" anywhere on the screen, including the lower grey portion used for picture analysis.
 
works on HD-SDI and Composite inputs
 
what you will need:

Avenger software from Transvideo, now a free upgrade
 
Betz Level sensor, specify which side you want the Lemo output connector on
D-sub to Lemo adapter from Betz
Lemo to Lemo cable from Betz, specify length
 
cost:
 
sensor 800 euro
adapter 135 euro
cable 125 euro

I have that level sensor for almost 2 years. It has been great.

No, not a this point, it is interfaced with the transvideo Cinemonitor HD line only. However the XCS HD PDL will.
