For simple and quick work I`m looking for a very simple setup:
A mixer, a laptop as player and keysource and a monitorbridge. I think an Indigo should do it. Is anyone already using such a mixer and has pros and contras?
I've been researching the Indigo for a while now; our company is looking at purchasing 5 of them for live/imag use. It should do what you want well, especially with the High-Res card in it.
My biggest issue with it is latency. If you are trying to use the high-res card to upconvert your, lets say, composite or sdi camera to the dvi output, it induces a heavy frame delay, I'd say close to 15 frames or so. Though, if you do native in to native out, IE SDI in/SDI out or composite in/out, the latency with asynchronous sources seems to be under 5 frames, maybe 3 or so. It seems to be even lower with an external genlock.
