Recently we were sent to Edinburgh to meet up with MP Norman Lamb as part of a live insert for Channel 4 news talking about the late Charles Kennedy.
Fortunately the Scottish weather was kind to us and a BNC SDI cable was fed out of Scottish Televisions truck to my Sony FS7.
The Sony FS7 does not have any facility to feed an SD signal direct… so I had to use my Datavideo down converter the DAC-70 powered by a 12v “V” lock power supply.
On the back of the FS7 I also used the new small HD 502 1920 x 1080 field monitor. I used the HDMI socket from the FS7 as I wanted to keep my second SDI socket free in case of any problems.
This is not only a cracking unit but acts as a studio monitor on the back of my Sony FS7.
As you can see the FS7 has its loupe down to check focus, whilst I can confidently monitor pictures from the small HD.
The satellite engineer from Scottish Television, Alex was a great help and between us Channel 4 News were not disappointed.
