Updating AVID Editing Suites
Hello CC network!
For starters we have 3 HP Z420 with Nitris DX Avid systems. Currently ingest and output to tape (BetaSP, DigiBeta, DV Cam) however will be going FBD later this year (I hope). The system got upgraded from adrenaline and mojo boxes a few years ago but a good majority of the original setup and workflow still remains. SD workflow with bits of HD every once in a while.
Over the last year I have run into a number of weird ways things were daisy chained or hooked up. I am wanting to pull everything out and start from scratch (making sure everything is hooked up correctly). For now I am just going to focus on 1 system or this post will get long.
I will upload a somewhat completed diagram of our main system. A few things to note about it, the Tektronix is now a WVR-5000 and the CVBS is no longer going to the Tek but straight to the CM240.
Also, video from the computer is being ran 25ft via VGA to 2 monitors, should we upgrade this to DVI?
Side note on equipment:
