    Format for TV

    its best that you check the delivery specs from the station you're delivering to. Offhand for local stations, delivery specs should be 1080/50i XDCAM MPEG2 HD422 .MXF format. But for 30sec TV spot, they might just take PRORES 422 or XDCAM HD422 in .MOV format.

    USB C as headphone out for microphone audio monitoring

    the most accurate reference is still visually using your metering.

    USB C as headphone out for microphone audio monitoring

    in terms of quality, it is usually decent & accurate enough, but due to the USB-C output, depending on the type of Digital to Analog conversion (DAC) involved, there is usually some latency. ie. there'll be some form of delay in audio between what you see on screen, vs listening from the USB-C...

    AC from V-mount battery

    if your device is 24v, i suggest you series up your Vmount (14.8 + 14.8) to 29.6v nominal, then you use a LM2596 DC to DC step-down regulator to drop & regulate to 24v. It's more efficient than a boost to 24v from 14.8v. :) Thats what i did for running my video gears with Bosch 18v tool...

    AC from V-mount battery

    it's called a DC-AC inverter. They are pretty common and have been used ages ago for running TV & appliances in Cars, Buses, RV & Boats. Most are non-branded, but as a general guideline, you should be looking at buying 'Pure Sinewave' Inverters. There are cheap ones that uses 'Modified Sinewave'...

    AC from V-mount battery

    i was using these DIY systems quite a while ago... i even have a dual system Vmount power pack.. However, most of the gears are DC powered these days, so it becomes very inefficient to invert to AC from DC, just to drive DC powered equipment again.... eg. if your laptop runs 18vdc, its a lot...

    Livestream demo with Pany CX10

    Yeah, some of JVC's cam even have features for basic live graphics superimposition. eg. Scoreboard straps for live sports. And some CDNs are already offering online, web-based graphics superimposition features. I think in 2020, direct to stream and live to social media features will be the...

    Livestream demo with Pany CX10

    Its interesting that video cams these days are starting to market streaming features straight out of the camera... back since 2013-14 era, some of JVC's pro video cameras can already do that, but I guess they were too ahead of their time, and their marketing for pro video cams doesnt seem to be...

    Affordable 4 HDMI mixer from Blackmagic

    the early days of my HDMI to USB3 encoder costed me close to US$170... and this basically renders the BMD Web Presenter obsolete i guess... unless you really need the single HDSDI input... :)

    Affordable 4 HDMI mixer from Blackmagic

    i was indeed surprised that there's no preview & multiview output when I first hear of the release... i guess it's more to target the consumer market and functions more like a seamless presentation switcher. However, with the built in scaler at the pricing point, it might just work very well as...

    Canon vs Sony ecosystem

    i used to think I can work with Nikkors...but after trying for a few jobs, and having been so used to broadcast & cine zoom lenses, you'll find Nikkor zooms with opposite zoom turning direction a pain, and more problematic is the lack of par-focal capability. I guess I am just too old-school...

    Canon vs Sony ecosystem

    Not that many cameras in the film/video industry uses the native EF mount if you think of it.... Panasonic so far only EVA1 has it, and the others have mostly been BMD and perhaps Z-Cam. Those who use EF glasses for video applications are mainly using thru Metabones, speedboosters or other...

    Canon vs Sony ecosystem

    Good write up & summary.... Also to add, Canon have been very inconsistent with their internal video recording codecs. From their 5Dmk2/3/4, C100, C300, back to their C200, and even with their XC10/15 that is promoted as B-cams to the C-line, none of them have a video codec that is common...
