Timecode Input & Genlock Question
on Apr 21, 2012 at 4:54:56 pm


I am looking into purchasing 3x EX3's and a Panasonic AV-HS410 Switcher for live events.

In order to sync the cameras easily in post I am assuming I will need to run timecode from a master clock (I'm looking into the ESE LX-362U) to each camera. Do I need to use HD-SDI bnc cable for this or will standard analog BNC (I use Canare LV-61S) work as well? Runs will be 200-250ft.

Also, I need to Genlock the Cameras and switchers. Do I need analog BNC out of my signal generator or will I need HD-SDI? Not sure whether the genlock input on the EX3 is analog or digital.

Not sure if this post would be better off in the Live & Stage Events, please let me know if I should repost there. Thanks.

Standard BNC should be ok for TC and gen lock. Both are analog signals.
