What makes it so difficult? It would seem to me to be a lot eaier than some of the other HD cameras, because you dont gotta worry about all the set-up controls... You just set the frame rate, shutter, ect and press the reocrd button. and even then It should be no more complicated than having one feed from the camera going to both downconverted monitors and HD montitors, and the main fiberoptic wire to a Sony SRW or something... Really I see no where that 30 computers could even come into the show. MAYBE one to one for a low-rez feed to while you shoot, so that you can bring back up scenes you just shoot to look at them again.
Even on other productions that are not so computer dependant, you still hear them talk about how much stuff was needed to make it work, I just dont see it... Am I missing something somewhere in the process of getting it from the camera head to a recorder?
