Im using an XL1 on this live band shoot and I want to be able to talk to my camera op if possible, how would you guys set this up, this will be at a concert so the lines will be run through people, so it has to be a pretty industrial solution...but not too expensive...

If you are running a tether to the camera, then run clearcom from the truck with it,
and use a belt-pack for the cam op.

If the camera is free roving, use inexpensive FRS two way radios with headsets.

You can purchase these little FRS radios at places like Best Buy, and some are available with a vox activated mic,
but that might not be great in a concert setting.

Can you not just run Clearcom line along with the composite line from your truck and use a belt pack?

I'm also curious how you are going to feed Genlock to the XL1, Or I guess your not.
