Re: X-Y protocol??

The FS2 will frame-rate convert, although there may be limits...I haven't looked. We have one converting two devices (an Apple TV box and a grid cam) from 1080i60 to 1080i59.94. The FS1 certainly can't do that. I've got to mind the fans, or I'll lose a power supply. Just restocked supplies of both....

Re: X-Y protocol??

Just to make it a bit more confusing, you could route it into an Aja FS-1 set to output 1080i/59.94 -- but if the input video was 60.00, that's what you got on the output. (I'm still having trouble believing that part happened, but checked it enough times...) Yup. Believe it. The AJA FS series (FS1...

Re: X-Y protocol??

One rather neat trick I've been using lately: their micro converters are handy for extending computer video over longer distances. When we rebuilt our studio a few months ago, we moved a whole rack full of WSI weather gear out of the studio and into the rack room. Each of the computers has a Displa...

Re: X-Y protocol??

Not a big fan of Imagine hardware, it's always something with them. Agreed. We have had a lot of Leitch gear over the years, and it was remarkably robust. I was unimpressed when they were acquired by Harris, and even less impressed when Harris imploded into Imagine and Gates Air. Ross and Cobalt ha...

Re: X-Y protocol??

I had a set of Panaceas connected over XY protocol. I recall it being quite kludgey to setup, but once it was setup, it never failed.

So basically its a Leitch/Harris/Imagine proprietary protocol????
Leitch/Harris yes. I don't know if Imagine supports it anymore.

Re: X-Y protocol??

It's rather simple. In the Leitch software, the X-Y crosspoint setup basically fixes source to destination. (Think of a grid, X = Sources, Y = Destinations). You'd set the button on a Panacea switcher to execute the X-Y point. It's been years, and I mean years, since I've used the Router Mapper soft...

Having the units email, and print the email.

That's what I did for one station I setup.

That link you posted doesn't go anywhere.

I recommend you post the actual link, and not a tinyurl redirect.

Re: Transmitter Nitrogen Issue

I know my previous post was 100% ignored on this topic , but hopefully you'll pay attention to this one. OSHA requires those tanks be secured to the wall or structure. If the Tank is not secured to the wall, it MUST have the safety cap on and tight on top. If you tip a tank over, and the valve pops,...

Re: Transmitter Nitrogen Issue

Are you all waveguide to the antenna or do you transition to coax? You say you have pressure when you disconnect the nitrogen tank, where do you have the pressure? On the line going into your regulator? What size tanks are you buying for your system as well? I had to replace a bad regulator about a ...

Replacement for HD-Star

So we have (or had) a Videotek (Harris) HD star, that appears to have made a sudden stop on a concrete floor. We believe it was dropped from the cracked case. In any event, the HD-SDI Input has failed now because of the sudden stop from some unknown distance. The unit is old, and unsupported by Imag...
