I have a PRO2 and am considering outfitting it for "live" work with remote lens control on the gimbal, triax and fiber connections, tally, program monitor, etc. Apparently the PRO isn't the most user friendly rig for this type of work but that's what I've got so I'd like to make it work.

Would really like to hear from anyone who has suggestions on how to mod the PRO and also any tips on venturing into this different type of work.

Back- up gear is also a good idea for Live TV. Two docking stands can also be helpful
