SDI Black Recommendation

Hi,

I have a Echolab Nova 3416 which needs a Genlock.  I have a Horita BSG-50 but the Echolab doesn't seem to lock to it.  I keep reading that the Echolab needs "SDI Black" and not the analogue BlackBurst you get from the BSG-50.  Can anyone suggest the cheapest SDI Black unit for the Echolab?

Thanks,

Colin

You may be able to get by

You may be able to get by with any 480i SDI video source. I was able to get an old Echolab to fire up using the 2nd SDI output of my camera's CCU, with the first output going to a switcher source.

DAC-70

Thanks for that!  I've just tried my DataVideo DAC-70 set at 576i50 and it works!

To be honest I haven't even

To be honest I haven't even put video through it!! I have it purely to figure out how to get the panel to work on the current range of ATEM switchers.

Sorry!

You might have the capacity

You might have the capacity to get by with any 480i SDI video source. I could get an old Echolab to start up utilizing the second SDI yield of my camera's CCU, with the primary yield setting off to a switcher source.
