Blackburst generator for HD. Advice?
on Jan 11, 2013 at 10:29:11 am


Recently while trying to output a HD project onto HDCAM I needed to use print to tape to be frame accurate. As it turned out kept dropping audio every few seconds. I am using the HDW D1800 Deck -

Went through the manual of the deck and couldn't really find anything

Google'd it... Found that I need to give a ref through a blackburst generator

Found these options for generators-

a Horita blackburst generator

and a Blackmagic one

Just as I'm begining to feel good I find this post

Now I'm confused, Is the camera solution just a workaround?

Also the product specs of the generators show they generate a SD blackburst, Is that good enough for a ref for a HD project?

My system specs are -

Mac OS X
Version 10.6.3
Processor 2 x 2.8GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory: 6 GB 667MHZ DDR2 FB-DIMM

FCP 7.0.3

Blackmagic DeckLink HD Extreme
Version 9.5.3

Thanks guys!

AJA Gen-10. Normal and Tri-sync and fairly cheap to boot.
