Hi guys

I'm on a live TV breakfast show here in Cape Town South Africa and I am currently flying with a trusty little green screen Marrel monitor ( as we broadcast an analogue signal in South Africa ).

I want to pair this with a relatively inexpensive small 3" to 5" monitor to get a return - saves having to flip the screen during live to see bugs and strap positions.

Any of you doing something similar - would love to see what you are using as a "return screen"

Thanks so much

Hi Michael,

 

I have this little light screen...accept 12volt so you can power it from the low jbox:

Thanks Harris

It's just a reference so that should work well.

I used a transparent sheet that you use for projectors and drew the bug and strap locations. I taped it to my monitor and now I just generally frame with it in mind.

Well that could save me a few dollars thanks Victor.

I just like the idea of having the show and my live picture together. We shoot a lot of live music and it's nice to be able to play off the other operators frames as you mix from static to steadicam.

But having said that acetate is not a bad idea too.
