Genlock Settings EX3

Post by Synergyfilmsnz » September 6th, 2013, 1:28 pm

Does anyone know of any tutorials or other instructions on best practice when it comes to tweaking the genlock settings in the EX3. The user manual is a tad obtuse!

I'm wanting to genlock 2-3 EX3's together as well as a Blackmagic Atem me1 mixer. Reading around it seems that I could use one camera as a master, then feed the monitor output to the next camera genlock in, and so on, ending up feeding the ref in to the mixer.

The question is, do I need to do anything special with the genlock settings in the ex3?

BTW, send an HDSDI signal to the mixer.

Thanks in advance.
Cheers,

You won't need to change any settings in the EX3's in most cases, but if you want to sync more than 1 other device you need either a sync generator or distribution amplifier to provide the sync feed for each device. I would not recommend syncing one camera to the first using the first cameras component Y output and then taking the Y from the next and so on as there will be delay between the sync from the first camera and later sync signals and this may lead to instability.
