Having spent £200 on an HDMI to SDI Atoms converter I now discover the HDMI socket on my FS7 is producing a non standard SD signal.
576/50i is the standard PAL SD signal not 575/50i, this is why my converter can’t “see” the SD signal being produced from my FS7.
Why do I need an SD signal…I can be called to film a live feed into a satellite truck and most of them only accept SD signals. I need the ability to feed an SD signal via a SDI socket which the FS7 can’t do natively.
If any other FS7 owner can test the HDMI SD output I would be very grateful.
I hope Sony are on to this and repair the SD signal from the HDMI socket in the up and coming v.2 firmware.
