View Full Version : VT4 color beat?

10-11-2007, 09:41 PM
I just set up a new VT4 system, complete with SX84, in a new quad core xeon server. Everything seems to be working fine, except that I see a small but very noticeable flicker coming from all inputs. It looks like a small color beat. Both cameras I was testing with were running on batteries (a canon XL1 and a sony DSR300). The flicker was present on both my output monitor and the PGM monitor within the program, and a small but rapid up and down jitter appeared on the waveform within VT-Scope. Any ideas? Thanks a lot.

Lets start with the basics since it is a new install. Did you run the Auto Configure and the Core Update prograns?

I did start with a new install and I did run auto configure, however, what is the Core Update?

I was actually able to obtain a more stable picture by moving my video input into the U connectors of the SX84 rather than the Y, however there is still a small bit of flickering on the main composite output.
