Event Coverage with EX1 and EX3's
on Nov 4, 2009 at 12:52:33 am

Hi all,

I've just been tasked with cooking up a solution to cover an event the company's doing in a couple of weeks. We're going to have two or three HDTV's set up around the event and would like to feed video into them from our one EX1 and two EX3's. Probably two cameras stationary and the third moving through the crowd. What kind of hardware do you guys think we'll need?

I'm new to this kind of event coverage.

Hardware in terms of....? You mean live switching or something else?

You would be using the HD-SDI terminals on the ex line.
Each line needs to feed into a switcher. That switcher then needs to feed out to the HD moniters.

With an HD-SDI you're limited to about 300ft, unless you boost the signal.

You need to tell us, what the moniter inputs are. That will then guide you to the board you need. Also the distance you plan on running bewteen you and the switcher. I used to do live events but we used triax.

A board like this with 4 HD-SDI inputs would do. It just depends on your budget. *i just quickly googled one, I dont endorse this product*
