ARRI 435ES PAL/NTSC Compatibility

Recommended Posts

Hey all, I'm looking into buying an ARRI 435 and I have a quick question on any potential pitfalls of a PAL IVS system in an NTSC setting. I'm based in the US, but most of the systems I am finding that are at a good price and come with what I want all have a PAL IVS. My question is would there be any complications running a signal out of a PAL IVS system to an analog to SDI converter, then onto something like a SmallHD monitor? Also, are there any other potential issues that I'm overseeing on a setup like this? Any advice or enlightenment on this would be much appreciated. Thank you!

There are some cheap boxes that will convert 625 to 525 as SDI (digital) but it might take two boxes or so to get the O/P you want. It would mean hanging them off the tripod or in a box with a power supply or strapping them to the back of a monitor. I think Black Magic might do such boxes.

 

I haven’t looked at the 435 closely enough to see how you strip out the existing IVS camera for a different format.

 

One of these days I intend to get around to taking a modern HD machine vision camera, fixing an HDMI card to it and mounting it on a 35 mm.

Perfect, thanks for the info Jeremy.
