BlackMagic Intensity + CCTV camera

benoitlahoz's picture

Hi !

I was wondering if someone had already tested a CCTV camera on the BlackMagic.

I have to do a tracking on unusual distances and my poor PS3Eye will not do the trick.

I have some trouble connecting a CCTV cam on the BlackMagic Intensity Extreme through an SDI-> HDMI converter. I guess this is a problem of framerate of the camera, but I would be extremely grateful for ANY advice of someone who would have used this kind of stuff or who would have ANY idea on why it's not working ! :-))

Thank you !!!

What CCTV camera are you using?

I'm using an HD-SDI IR cam from a French manufacturer : http://www.kamatec.fr/camera-video-surveillance-2/videosurveillance-came...

I've had a call with someone from there, but they are unable to tell me the framerate !!! "At least 25 fps", hmmmm... I'll try to change the voltage transformer and we'll see.

Are you used to this kind of cam ?

No sorry I have not used that camera. Looks good from the specs. Best of luck.
