The Modulus 4000.....finally?
Posted 28 February 2007 - 08:25 AM
Paraphrased from the email:
Power/Video In - 3-Pin Lemo.
Audio In - 4-Pin Lemo.
Timecode - 2-Pin Lemo.
Video In - 75 Ohm BNC Male
RF Output - 50 Ohm BNC Male.
Power input range - 9-36 Volts.
Maximum output - 1 Watt.
Quoting the email:
"It's slated to have a step-down switch to decrease the power by 100mW, although that wattage # is subject to change. The volume will be about the size as the current unit. However, the new unit is designed to be a little taller and a little thinner width-wise. The VITC inserter is designed to have an optional burn-in window on the receive side. Another big change is using a greater spectrum of channels to transmit. It will use both the VHF and UHF band to transmit from Channel 2-69. And lastly, the new design allows for the unit to switch from NTSC to PAL transmission within the same unit. The unit will come with a antenna, but no power connectors or cables."
MSRP - $2195

Combine less than perfect customer service, with the fact that UHF channels may be completely dedicated to homeland security after all TV transmission goes totally digital, I'd be hesitant to drop the $$ on technology that may not be viable for us in the near future. It's one thing to transmit on UHF today, and someone near location may be able to pick up our signal. It's totally another thing to interfere with a governemental frequency in the future.
There are many 1.2ghz & 2.4ghz systems on the market. One day, someone will make a perfect one for Steadicam. Food for thought before you spend your hard earned $$. Pesonally, I'm waiting to see what happens.

Does anyone in here have the pin-out for the two connectors at the base of the Archos 604 that mate to the DVR Station. I have usually been making the cable using the TV Docking Pod. Does the 604 have the inputs at the top like the older ones or have they gone away?

I don't have the pin outs I'm afraid but the inputs are at the bottom of the unit.

How are they getting around selling an "illegal" unit?
Shhhh.... not so loud! It's supposed to be a secret.
Please tell me my government has so many more important things to do and places to spend our resources on than tracking down a few dozen or even a few hundred dozen 1 watt VHF / UHF video transmitters.

I will be getting eight Modulus 4000 by late this week or early next week. Already three have been sold. I also have the Ultra Ant antenna and enough cable and connectors to get ou up and running. I also will be carrying the Mod Quad diversity receiver.
Call me, I'll probably take it

The cable, me factory!

The bird's eye view angle looks like my "battleship" game. (I haven't played in years!)
"C7", "Hit!" "C8" "Hit!" etc...
You sank my Battleship!

I should have said "J7!", "hit!" That would have been much funnier.
