Cam-ops rejoice! The high-def flatscreen 7 inch monitors are cable free! They just slide into a powered mount and are good to go. Plus: the monitor’s modern and intuitive UI provide operators with focus peaking, waveform and vectorscope. And who could forget tally lights? The monitor’s numbered LED tally lights face both the talent and operator so both the talent and operator know when they’re on. The tally lights can also be flashed by the engineer to get your attention. And as always they can use the call function over comm.

Engineers, meet your new best friend. Our tailor-made package is self contained. All the CCUs are stacked in a single road case and all the paintboxes in another. Just open the lid, plug in and you’re ready to go. The top row of the case even has a monitor rack so you can navigate menus and see what all the operators are aimed at.

Decimator Design’s MC-Quad: The Director’s Best Friend

Multicam shoots can be difficult. Directing four cameras can be downright strenuous. Having a monitor for each camera is cumbersome, expensive and simply a pain in the neck.

That’s where Decimator Design’s MD-Quad comes in.

The MD-Quad is a very helpful tool for directors and ACs alike. You can feed the MD-Quad up to four 3G/HD/SDI signals and output to a single HDMI or SDI monitor in full 4:4:4, creating an easy to use multi-view screen. No more monitor trees or heavy splitters, just a little red box slightly larger than a deck of cards.

Now available for rent at Picture This.
