Wooden Camera - C-Box (Converter, D-Tap)





C-Box (Converter, D-Tap) accepts HDMI and 3G HD-SDI input, selectable via switch on operator's side, and outputs simultaneously three channels of HD-SDI and two of HDMI. The device draws power from the D-Tap of a battery or battery plate using the included cable. Each video output is independently reclocked and carries the same signal strength as the original. LED indicators are located on the operator's side to show status of power and signal.

This version attaches between any V-Mount or QRC-style Gold Mount and wherever the plate was attached previously. For example, the C-Box (Converter, D-Tap) can fit between the WC V-Mount (Epic/Scarlet) and the Quick Back V2 Another example would be attaching it between the WC Gold Mount (BMC) and the Battery Slide or Recorder Slide
