Composite Signal into LHe
on Dec 1, 2006 at 7:28:53 pm

Hello,

I need to get a DVCAM-PAL signal from our Sony DSR-45 into my G5/Kona LHe.

The DSR-45 can only output the DVCAM-PAL through the RCA Composite out ("Monitor Out").

I'm not sure how to get that into the SDI or Component in's of the LHe.

I do have an S-Video to Y/C Breakout Cable, is possible to get a Composite RCA to S-Video cable and, then the Y/C into the Kona (via component int).

[DVCAM-PAL>RCA Composite>Svideo>Y/C>Kona LHe Component>Final Cut]

Hopefully i'm communicating this properly.
Thank you,

I am not certain as I don't have an Lh2 (i do have a Kona 2), but I am pretty sure you take the Y input of the Kona card and hook that up to the composite out of the deck. Open up your Kona control panel and change the format from component in to Composite (or Y) in or choose a composite easy setup in FCP.

Why won't it output via component?

It's [David Smith] "[FargoRoss] "The DSR-45 can only output the DVCAM-PAL through the RCA Composite out ("Monitor Out")."

It is an NTSC deck. It's ability to output PAL is limited to the onscreen LCD, and the RCA Composite out.

If it's an NTSC deck I don't think you can get any PAL output. I don't find any mention of that in the deck's literature, but I did find this on one vendor's website:

"with the exception of the DSR-11 and DSR-25 dual standard NTSC/PAL desktop VTRs, you cannot get PAL playback output on NTSC DVCAM VTRs (PAL viewing is possible on the DSR-50 LCD monitor, but no PAL output is available), and similarly, cannot get NTSC playback on PAL DVCAM VTRs."

Anyway, regardless of what kind of composite signal your deck is capable of, it's easy to bring in composite through your LHe. The card is not limited to SDI and component. You set the type of analog signal in the AJA Control Panel's Input tab. A quick search in your manual will explain how to do it and where to route the signal.

Regards,
David
