    Sony Anycast Lag

    hey guys,


    as well as my love for editing i have a love for vision switching. i was working at a place that uses a sony anycast and i on an ag-mx70 cutting the cameras.

    now i am working for another company looking to use only a sony anycast but i was a bit anxious about the lag of the input previews down the bottom of the screen. i was wondering if anyone knows if there is a way around the lag, maybe a setting on the anycast or using an external monitor?

    any help would be much appreciated

    thank you :)

    I went to a demo of the anycast close to two years ago. It is a neat little machine. The portability is way cool and the fact that it can do HD is pretty impressive.

    BUT, lag is known issue with it. And not just on a preview either. There is a lag in the program out on the system as well. It was something the demonstrator showed us in the first 20 minutes of a 4 hour demo. I actually appreciated the guy being up front about it.

    Nothing small conventions and churches couldn't live with but not something I would rush to use on high profile/high dollar event.


    :EDIT: You can bypass the preview lag by using external monitors and doing a loop thru then going into your Anycast. Or if your monitors don't have a loop thru (rare but out there) you could feed the source to a DA then use the DA to feed the monitor and the Anycast.

    Re: Sony Anycast Lag

    I'm not an expert here but I would like to know what you mean by LAG. Lag from what to what? And why is it a problem?

    I use the Anycast to broadcast/record government meetings live.
