Hi Folks!

 

Does anyone out there have any experience in using a Nyrius Aries Pro Tx / Rx setup?? Specifically, have you ever used it with a SmallHD monitor? I'm currently experimenting with one to see if it will hold me over until I can afford a Bolt Pro. 

 

The problem is that it seems to be working with every HDMI output I can find EXCEPT for the one coming out of my SmallHD monitor ...and yes the monitor was set for HDMI output. The Tx and Rx would connnect with each other. It's just that the Tx didn't seem to like the signal that was running through it. The little blue 'video' light wouldn't turn on to indicate it was getting a feed from the monitor output.

 

Can anyone help please??

What format are you feeding the monitor?

In this case I had an Alexa at full resolution patched into my sled and then through the monitor.

My first guess is that you were feeding a 24psf signal to the monitor, which supports it, which then passed it onto the Nyrius, which doesn't. Easy fix: you can switch the monitoring output of the Alexa to 29.97 which will look the same visually, but will be compatible with the Nyrius.

Ok, I'm back with news!

 

First, let me outline the setup: Signal came from an Arri Alexa into my sled > out at the bottom stage and into my SmallHD DP7 (HD-SDI) > Cross converted thru the DP7 and output from the HDMI to the Nyrius Aries Pro Transmitter.

 

Charles, your advice was spot-on! All I had to do was to adjust the output framerate to 29.97 / 30 fps and it worked like a charm! Also, I tested it with an Epic, and that worked with output framerates of 24 and 30 fps!

 

The range I got out of it was better than expected too. I was testing it in Panavision here in Toronto. This Panavision has lots of metal in the building, wifi flying around and lots of rooms, I was able to take the signal around 100' away with lots of walls and steel structure between the transmitter and receiver. The device claims 160' LoS, so I think it did pretty damn well.

 

Charles, thanks again for the tip!

Glad it worked out. I used a Blackmagic switcher as part of my monitoring setup and it doesn't know anything other than 59.94, so I quickly learned about the Alexa monitoring options. I've also put a couple of Decimators into the chain that can convert the signal as well, which is another useful fix in these situations.
