I am in the market for a new camera/switcher package that will produce sporting events for local broadcast and videoboard playback. The system I'm leaning towards is as follows: 4 Sony EX3 - 2 M/E 16 input ATEM - Compact Videohub - and a bunch of HD SDI playback and record equipment. My question is what is the best solution for a Sync Generator in my camera chain - as I understand it, to minimize any latency I will have with non synced sources. Also has anyone had experience with non sync'ed cameras and how much latency can I expect with an ATEM? My other solutions are Broadcast PIX and some kind of Newtek product.
This package is going into a minor league baseball facility so like anything these days the budget is exceptionally tight. Someday I'll get a project that has an unlimited budget - someday :)
