  1. I guess with enough time and money anything would be possible athought that being said I just can't imagine anyone trying to get the Aaton camera brain to operate or work side by side with an other manufactures camera ( Arri or Pannivision ) and then modify the gates to allow the exposure of the TC infomation to the film edge. The work invovled would be huge for little to no return if there are no post houses even using the Aaton reader software anymore. Does Aaton even support that anymore? Seems crazy that they would when syncing software has come so far in the past 20 year since they released it. What does your post house say they want to sync it?
  2. Agree on your TC rate with post / camera department, set your gear to it, use a TC slate. The stuff will be synced only after it is transfered to digital anyway so not any different than a normal double system workflow for normal HD projects. Aaton code is a product specific process and will not work on Arri. ArriCode was not really used very often here locally back when film cameras ruled the earth, very few labs ever made it work.
  3. Yep, and systems like QTake already broadcast audio to these units along with the video assit image directly to the Ipads / Iphones. For what ever reason, ( thankfully ) listening to the feed has not caught on over the past few years of these systems running on set. I imaging once folks understand that they can use thier personal BT headsets to listen from these items it might take hold a bit more. That said, most client villages, they are too busy "working" on their phones that the idea of using them for actually watch what is going on might be a stretch, easier to just ignore what is happing on the big monitor. I have started to use small BT TX's on a few of my IFB outputs for directors that request the ablity to use their own headsets.
  4. Not sure I would say " better represented" considering the percentage of the females walking around this earth verses what I see daily on sets in NYC. I think we have a long way to go before we can take any sort of moral equality victory lap on this one in the sound department.
  5. Nope, not common at all here. In fact, other than the " helping out a friend on a no budget short thing" I have never seen it done. My guess is that there are other real reasons that they are bringing this person as the idea of traveling, putting up, posting a carne, working papers if needed, per diem, local transportation..... is never cheaper than hiring locals. Having been on both sides of this equation, often production will use the excuse of " can't find someone local who..... ( fill in the blank here with a ready made excuse ) in order to side step the local production norm and bring in the person that they wanted all along.
  6. 100% in the same boat on this as the other gentlemen, this would be a very popular function addition to an already stellar recorder series.
  7. Seems to still be branded as Audio Limited in the photos at least.
  8. Not really, It is often used as a reorganization tool in order to either raise a companies sell price or as a term of purchase by buyer. Heavy debt is not always an indication of a company “struggling”. Generally, the losses are absorbed by the creditors which is the crappy part of the equation.
  9. I am not of the opinion they have forgotten Pro users at all, quite the opisite, I have found their products and software updates very responsive.
  10. Hi James, I worked on a Documentary on the Lee Sedol / AlphaGo match ( on Netfix/iTunes/Amazon called 'AlphaGo") and it was my introduction to this incredibly fascinating world of AI and true learning machines. Although it is fun to think about the entertainment side of these applications it is the medical field where these machines are going to change things at an amazing rate.
  11. These iOS type TC displays are pretty handy for VR type jobs, it has been my experience that some of the high count, multi camera rigs have issues when stitching together the TC display on the Denecke slates where these types of set ups have proven to be much easier for them to get an image that is usable on a screen.
  12. Hi Steve, I switched over about 6 months ago and I really like them so far. I have 3 batteries, 2 of the Hi-Q and one directly from Inspire, I am getting about 1.5 days of run time with a 633 and Lectrosonics SR-C. I like knowing that for the most part, the battery that I start the day with is the one I will likely end the day with. I have the AudioRoot 2 bank charger, I like that it tells me how many times a battery has been charged which makes it easy to keep them all in the same condition. Hope to see you in Baltimore soon, good luck on your job. Chris
  13. If you can convince someone to pay you for gear rental on a scout, you are doing something right, more power to you. I do not have that level of negotiating skills myself.
