View Full Version : Preview Out

Since you have 4 composite outputs on the SX8 BOB, can you get a hardware preview out from the SX8?
I know you can use TV Vision, but in the studio set up we have it would be nice to use real NTSC monitors for both prev and prog

Hardware preview out is not available in VT[3].

This has always confused me. No offense, but who makes a 24 input professional breakout box with out preview outputs? I'm not trying to be critical, but it seems stupid.

Mabye you guys should make a second breakout box that has preview out, multiple sdi ins/outs and more xlr connections. Call it the SX-10 ore something and sell it for a little more than the SX8.

One solution that is kinda obvious, is to have Dual Monitors and make VT-Vison full size on it.

Yeah, but im usually using both monitors. Does VT[3] work with the tri head matrox card? I can't think of it's name. I can either do 3 monitor outs or two monitor and one svideo out. If someone could write a plugin to get it to send preview out over svideo that would be awesome.

Agree though that the SX-8 should have included:

Input loop-throughs (bonus if they had Y/C as well as Composite)
More XLR inputs and outputs (say 4 in & 4 out

Agreed, I went from Panasonic AGMX-70 to VT[3] and I miss the Preview monitor terribly!

more XLRs would be nice... i had to jery rig a press box for my inputs it works but it would be nice to have it included
