hi was working in new York recently and the sound guy i was working with told me that a lot of shooters over there use portable dvd players as monitors. Also that he saw one guy with a recordable dvd device that took a signal from the digibeta cam and was portable and could record the picture and also playback dvds. anyone know what this might be or any info on what portable dvd players would take a signal from a digibeta with a bnc. Hav'nt been able to find one over here in europe.
thanks for any help

You could just use a BNC to RCA adapter...those portable DVD players are more likely to take a composite in rather than BNC, if they take video in at all.

Most only take a pretty finnicky proprietary connector... maybe good for framing but the colors are not true and surely not good for focus. The finalizing and formatting time would make most burners pretty impractical.
