Hey Everyone! If you have the time and knowledge, could you help confirm a purchase choice, for me?
Well, I've finally got the PO's straightened out for ordering the Addenda deck control converters for use with the IoHD.
I am ordering the Rs-4/L for making the IoHD talk to a Sony MU25 HDV Deck, and while I was at it, I figured I should also order a converter to allow us to control this old standard def Panasonic AJ-D230HP DVPRO deck that used to be used with a Timegate system.
The Panasonic has a 9-PIN serial connector labeled RS-232.
The IoHD has a 9-PIN serial connector labeled RS-422.
Am I correct in my thinking that the Addenda product I need is their RS-2/9 converter?
Will this allow me to do "offline pickups" and footage swapping in FCP? I see that one of my Deck Control Presets in FCP Log and Capture is "AJA IoHD Panasonic VTR". Will this choice and that converter set me right?
As always, your gracious wisdoms are hugely appreciated.
