i am using three uvw-1800 decks to capture separate feeds. I am trying to send the same audio feed to all three decks from one signal. Sould i use a signal splitter of some kind, or do the audio in's and out's make a loop during record mode so i can chain them together . . . any help would be great . . . thanks
this is all excellent advice. If you purchase simple Audio DA's (Kramer makes balanced XLR audio DA's that are inexpensive, and work very well), you simply take your audio source (mixer, etc.) and go into the DA, and take each output, and feed one of your Beta VTR's. This same process applies to the video signal - you use a Video DA to feed your three machines.
Kramer is also sold under the name Ocean Matrix, or Comprehensive Video. Markertek is an excellent source for these products.
