A solution for Sony FS7 owners who need HD-SDI down converted to SD (£350 plus vat)

DAC70

Once again this came about because the Sony FS7 only outputs UHD and HD from the HD-SDI sockets. I was filming a job during the week which ended with the need to produce a live link. I was assured there was an HD feed but sadly that was not the case. Out came the Sony X70 422 10bit camera with an SD feed straight from the HD-SDI socket. Having looked into it and some sage advice from Stuart from Holdan I  ordered the data video DAC-70. This will be a very useful tool as you can input SDI-HDMI sources and output to either SDI or HDMI in both HD or in my case SD.

Holdan “The one mini converter that should be in every kit bag. Whatever kit freelancers or clients ask you to use for a shoot, this device will get you out of jail: up, down and cross convert; ingest VGA signals into an SDI workflow; embed stereo audio into a video feed.”
