Program, Preview, and 8 inputs on one LCD?
on May 18, 2009 at 3:34:35 pm

While browsing Ebay, I ran across this production trailer:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160335003089

If you look at the second picture, it shows a Grass Valley switcher and an LCD monitor with Preview, Program, and 8 inputs on one LCD. I know some new switchers will do this themselves. but this seems to be a standalone setup.

I have a similar Grass switcher, and would love to have the same set-up for monitoring, if I can afford it.

I asked the seller, and what I got back was:

"I put 2 splits (frys) in 1 LCD. with pgm, preview, cameras, vtr,"

Any guesses what he meant? (I hate to bother him again, unless I have to, because I am not going to bid on the trailer...I have my own trailer, and it's not 1500 miles away!)

Thank You for any leads
Mike

Hi Mike,

I'm not sure what's doing the split in the picture, but I've seen this done with a product from Evertz -- I think the MVP series.

i have no idea what he ment

but a multiviewer with a decent quality is more expensive then the GVG100 or 110. maybe a HS400 of panasonic is the thing your looking for

greet

Well, yes, you can tell by the fact that I'm using a Grass 100 that I'm at the low end of the equipment budget spectrum. I'd hoped that, since the production trailer on Ebay had a Grass 100 also, that there was now an economical way to turn an LCD into a multi image display.
My trailer is already overloaded, so if I could save on the weight of CRT monitors, that would be a plus.

Looks like he's just using quad splits. To get the setup in the picture on ebay, you'll need three quads, just run the output from two quads into two of the inputs on the third quad.

Yep, that turns out to be exactly how he was doing it....three boxes, and a pile of interconnect cable....oh, boy.
Now....does anyone know of a cheap quad that outputs VGA instead of composite?
