am shooting a wedding in a few weeks with my ex1r and need to get HDSDI cable to run from my camera to an HDVT in a different area of the church for the overflow to watch on.
How far can I safely go and quality is still good? and can you get the cable hdsdi for the camera and hdmi on the other end for the tv since it wont have hdsdi
any brand in particular and a good reputable place to buy it?
As we discussed a couple of months ago. HDSDI is good for around 300 feet but that is getting close to the max length. However you might be able to add a reclocking device to get a little more length. You will need to do a site survey to determine the length you need then back at your shop do some testing. You can buy an HDSDI to HDMI converter. Black Magic and AJA among others make such devices. BH photo has them on their site. The big deal is test test test. The day of the service is not the day to find out its a run too long.
