GL1 as analog to digital converter / svideo -> firewire
on Mar 20, 2009 at 2:12:54 am

Hello,

I'm trying to do the following:

1) send an Svideo signal into the GL1
2) send that signal to my computer via firewire

(I'm in a theater, and trying to project a live feed from a camera out from my computer, where the signal is being modified).

I'm able to get the svideo signal to show up fine in the GL1 (with the camera in VCR mode). The problem comes when I connect the firewire cable to the computer. Then the signal disappears, because the camera apparently starts thinking that there is a DV input signal (screen goes to blue).

Is there a way to get the svideo in, and send it out via firewire to the computer (essentially using the camera as an analog to digital converter)?

Thanks!, Michael

i don't think it is possible. i was trying to do that too but all the camera will do is record the svideo to tape and then you can capture that.

i was disappointed too:(
