Cable question

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I'm setting up a watchout system for a theatre tour.

 

Components:

 

Windows 7 64bit

16 gb ram

I7 3770k

Asus sabertooth z77

2x intel 520 ssd 120gb

Hd7970 dc2t3gd5

Datapath rgb e1

Decklink SDI

 

2x. Panasonic dz770

 

Poduction:

 

1x hdsdi capture 720p50

1x macbook pro capture

 

1 main background graphic will be used and max 2 duplicate hdsdi captures

 

 

2 questions left

 

 

1- will my specs be capable of running a smooth wathout show

 

2- I'm looking for the best solution to connect 2 panasonic dz770 projectors on to my watchout display computer.

 

It will be used for a theatre tour. So no much interference with main power cables etc.

 

My three ideas:

 

- DVI ->. Rgbhv running 50m cable and connected on the rgbhv from the projector

 

- DVI fiber 50m http://www.kramerelectronics.com/products/model.asp?pid=783&utm_expid=56716085-7&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.kramerelectronics.com%2Fproducts%2Fsearch.asp%3Fs%3DDVI%26src%3D9

 

- Displayport -> VGA running 50m cable

 

Thanks,

Mitch

Hi Geogen,

 

thanks for the reply.

 

1 question left:

 

what do you prefer running 1920/1080 or 1280/720 to the projectors.

 

and will the pre split be necessary for custom made video files.

 

thanks,

Mitch

:D  that's two questions  :D

 

It is always best to feed the projectors at their native resolution.

So if the projectors are 1920x1080 native, use it.

 

For two 1080p outputs, the need for pre-split would be dependent on the movie encoding.

You should be able to get a 3840x1080 @ 25p to run smoothly with attention to encoding settings,

and possibly even 3840x1080 @ 50p or 60p.

This is something you should test and tune

on your system as part of its build / certification process.  ;)

Up to 40m you can use HDMI active cables - http://www.purelinkpro.de/Professional-Produkte/AV-Connections/HDMI-Copper-Cables/High-Speed-HDMI-Kabel-Active-Series-v13-v14::558.html

 

Up to 100 m you can use HDBaseT based extenders - those are getting more and more popular

Those ones have nice price: http://www.cypeurope.com/store/store/app/browse/category/5430/HDMI-Distribution/HDMI-Over-CAT/Single-CAT----up-to-100m/

 

Over 100m you either have to go with proprietary long range extenders over cat5/6/7 or fiber optics.

Up to 300m this one is very nice: http://www.purelinkpro.de/Professional-Produkte/AV-Connection-Systems/HDMI-Fiber-Optic/FiberX-Series-HDMI-IR-Single-Optical-Fiber-Extender::527.html

It uses only one fiber, but have two way communication.

 

Regards,

Tom
