I am trying to research and get my hands on a beam splitter with a 50% transparent mirror (and dual ports if possible to simplify rigging the two cameras to it). Does anyone have experience with this type of tool? Is there a facility that would rent it out so I can do tests?

Pace Cameras has rigs like you describe...they wouldn't be cheap to rent. You might browse around an Edmund Optics on-line catalog, they'll have the mirrors you're looking for.

Thanks for the Pace recommendation Hal. Will check in with them. I've been looking at Edmunds catologue for a bit and their splitters aren't too bad. Technically I can build the kind of rig I'm looking for, I would just like to ask some questions to an individual who has experience with this kind of stuff before I start spending production's money.
