    Canon XA-10 and TriCaster 40

    I know that the Canon XA-10 HD camcorder has component video output . . . but I need to confirm that its output via the component connector is 1080i and not 1080p. I am looking for an affordable HD camera to work with the TriCaster 40 which only works with 1080i and not 1080p.

    Can someone confirm that the XA-10 works with the TriCaster 40?

    Thanks!

    If it helps, from the manual p183, it lists the component out as 1080i

    Another way to tell is that has a Component Output there is no such thing as 1080p Component. If you are doing 1080 via Component it is always interlaced.

    Matt,

    All above comments are correct. I will say that I used my XA-10 when I rented the TC-40 from you and it worked like a charm! I tried both component out and HDMI--->TVOne and I had no issues either way. I opted to use the HDMI and converter only because of cable management in my conditions.

    The XA-10 is a very nice camera for the money!
