List of BMD Products that accept 3G Level A as of 8/30/18

PostThu Aug 30, 2018 7:34 pm

I have an on going problem on remote facilities in the US. Most mobile facilities are currently built to work with 3G-SDI Level A signals. More and more smaller vendors trying to integrate with mobile units are bringing us BMD products. A lot of which has issues with Level A. Kinda the reason most truck carry AJA products and not BMD.

Anyone have a list of BMD with Level A support? Or a list of BMD products lacking Level A support?

Thanks
Kevin

I think we should build one ourselfs.. There is no known list of A /B compatibility..

Wanted to make such a list for my own BMD gear as well.. Because i do have a lot of BMD gear and run a lot on 3G..

Dave i'm pretty suprised by those Analog units not being able to do 3G.. But do HD and 6/12G... :?
Feels Weird.. But true..

Yeah, I'm sure the SDI driver hardware used is capable of 3G SDI, but I think because of the upscaling modes supported on these units, there are no 3G output options. With SD input they allow upscaling to HD in which case 1.5G HD-SDI is used. With HD component input, they allow upscaling to UHD in which case 6G or 12G SDI output is used.
