Hey all,

I'm prepping for a 5 to 7 week TV series shoot, workin' with a few 7D's, and I'm in the middle of sorting out the monitoring issues.

Ideally, I want to send an HDMI signal to a BlackMagic or AJA HDMI to SDI Converter, then be able to run BNC's both to our on-board monitors and the directors monitor simultaneously.

In the past, I've rented, and the rental houses provide a Panasonic battery plate that's been converted to power the AJA or BlackMagic. But the production is buying most the equipment, so I wanted to know if anybody knew of any sources for either purchasing these, or buying the pieces separately and building them myself. I know basic electricity/electronics, and am pretty sure I could figure it out myself. But I'd rather find a one stop shop, as my turnaround is pretty tight at this point.

And I don't want to ask any rental houses, because I know they'd prefer we rent from them instead of fishing for information on how they do it.

Thanks!

Jon
