But will it work with the Studio, Broadcast and TCXD-850 ???

FYI

The Tally output from the Studio, Broadcast and TCXD-850 are different then the TCXD-300 on the 3.5 stereo cable.

Direct info on the tally light.

Here's an easier one.

Much bigger light and there is even a light in the rear for the camera operator to know they are hot from the TD. Plus they come with 100ft mini jack cable already. So if you have any of the tricasters with a tally mini connector. This unit will work with them. XD850 are a completely different setup.

Then there is METZ.

I have a customer with a Datavideo TB-5, and need to get tally out of his XD850. The 9-pin connectors on both the XD850 and the TB-1 are female.

I'm contacting Datavideo for the pinout of their end. Anybody know the pinout of the 850 tally connector?

Thanks.

Anybody know the pinout of the 850 tally connector?I can't tell you off the top of my head, but I know for certain that the manual has these details. There are also some folks here with purpose designed interface devices for TriCaster tally connections; I'm sure they'll pipe up, but you'd find them quickly with a search for "tally".

Visit www.tally-lights.com

We have a tally adapter for the TCXD-850 & 450 that changes the output from a DB-15 pin to the 3.5mm stereo female or XLR connection or BNC.

If you have tally outputs we can make it work on our tally system. Need to connect to a CCU, we can make it work.
