Hi everyone,

 

I just wanted to introduce myself. My Name is Alan Rencher, and I am a Steadicam owner-operator & camera operator, and I own Media Blackout (http://mediablackout.net). I make custom cables, bracket, and other widgets for camera department. I specialize in one-offs, short runs, and custom designing. I do 3D CAD design for sheet metal, CNC Milling and lathing, and injection molding.

 

I run a web store for many of the common cables requests I get, as well as some custom designed gear. Here are a few of my designs:

New: TVLogic USB Booster Cable

 

TVLogic-Booster-600.png?resize=300%2C200

 

In the same vein as our BMPCC USB Booster Cable, this cable will allow you to power your 5.6″ TVLogic Viewfinder Monitor from a USB source. This means you can run the monitor from small, inexpensive USB batteries. The cable boosts 5V USB type A outlets to 7.2V from any USB type A source that can output at least 2.1A. This is great for those who want to keep their rig in its lightest configuration, whether it’s being used on a gimbal rig (DJI Ronin, Freefly Movi), or a body-mounted set up. The possibilities are endless!

 

Media Blackout cable assemblies are made from high-quality components, and are assembled in Culver City, CA.

Is that your Hyperdeck Shuttle, Alan?

I'm wondering how the SDI and DC connectors were upgraded.

Hi Tim,

 

Yes, I do this upgrade for clients of mine. I replace the DIN connectors with Mini BNC connectors, and I replace the DC jack with a Lemo Jack. The Mini BNC connectors are the same design as normal BNCs, but only take up 60% of the space; this allows me to install them on the same footprint on the board with little modification to the case. Full-size BNC jacks can be added, but the have to be installed at the bottom of the case, opposite of the SSD opening.
