Hey Folks

For those in the know, what was DV used for in professional broadcast? Was is only just used for outside ENG (using DVCAM/DVCPRO), or was it ever used for playout of a full programme?

Either my Sony HVZ-Z1 camcorder, or my Sony DSR-11 deck.

I didn't know there were different versions of firewire, but a firewire to Thunderbolt adapter does exist from Apple.

I'm not sure I understand when you say "newer devices want progressive". The Camlink accepts 1080i natively; most NLEs etc can also work with progressive footage, not to mention that most broadcast...
