    HDMI over CAT6 will extend the run longer than just HDMI, but still not as much as you need it to be. I think your cheapest version is to do the two runs of SDI with the equalizer between. Fiber is a...

    Josh, my rule of thumb with wireless systems is whatever they are rated at for distance, divide that by 5, especially when reliability is a factor (as it would be for streaming). My systems are rated...

    Definitely there was no "free ride" in the film days, in fact it was more challenging because you didn't really get to see it either in camera or via the video tap, you just had to instinctually know...

    As Mitch already knows, I'm one of those people. We talked about it recently because of the passing of director Richard Rush. It's a big weird jangly surreal film and it may be feeling its age in...

    I can see that it was in shade but the shot was already a good stop or more over the camera angle preceding it, was already overexposed on the shade side. And it went on that way the whole shot...

    If the primary goal is to be able to control all of one's lights from an app, then there is bound to be compromise in other ways--no one manufacturer makes the best panel lights and COB's, but as...
