I am working on a streaming set-up for a baseball field. We are using a Sony HVR-V1U camera in Left-Center field, and a Sony PDW-F700 on the roof of the press-box.
The Camera in Left-Center field will be a static locked off (un-manned) shot of the pitcher/batter.
Both cameras need to be ran back to the press box behind the plate. We are using a BMD ATEM switcher. Obviously the F700 on the roof of the press-box has HDSDI out which we will run back to the switcher with no problems.
But I need a solution to run (component or HDMI) 1080i from our Sony HVR-V1U camera in Left-Center back to the press box (aprox. 425 feet).
The obvious choice would be fiber, but that seems quite expensive. Has anyone had any experience with HD over Cat5?
