Capture: AJA VTR Exchange
Playback: FCP or AJA TV. It really depends on what your needs are.

That looks like an excellent, first class system for doing video assist. It certainly meets my clients request for a system that does variable frame rate playback in high definition. However, they also said it needs it to do, in their words, "Final cut editing on the set, and green screen verification" as well as having some limited form of scopes capability. So, anything but a computer based system is out of the question, for their needs, and budget range..

So, for this project, I am interested in the capabilities of Imagine Products HD-Log and possibly Scope Box, as a separate purchase. HD-Log will supposedly start and stop the recording, based on the incoming time code, with a USB-port LTC adapter (or presumably an IO HD's LTC in port). So, technically, the Macbook Pro could be left unattended if that capture method works flawlessly. Which would totally rock! But, has anyone tried it yet?

Hi Brian,

I use HDlog for almost all my studio jobs. The video assist function works well, and combined with the logger, make this a great solution. I shoot in HDCAM, and when I need to review clips for continuity, reviewing the HDlog clips beats reviewing material in the camera.

The guys at Imagine are great to work with, you won't be sorry if you go this route.

Bill
