A Brief History of the Development Process
* HDX900 Camera Mod 1.0 - we developed a modification that would send a time code
signal to the Pix 240 and NanoFlash recorders without the need to have a tape in the camera's deck.
We provided a switch in place of the user main switch, which was in an easily accessible location
on the camera, to start time code running. When the external recorder received the time code signal
from the camera's SDI out, it began recording.
* HDX900 Camera Mod 2.0 - we further developed the modification to provide feedback
into the camera's viewfinder (green LED), which indicated that a time code signal was in fact being
sent to the external recorder, which would trigger the unit to start recording.
* HDX900 Camera Mod 3.0 - with our newest development to the modification, we have
eliminated the switch from the user main location, and added a connector on the rear of the camera.
With the supplied cable, a connection is made from the Lanc connector of the Pix 240, or the Remote
connector of the NanoFlash, to the camera. You can now use the lens and VTR start/stop buttons as
you always have, to trigger the unit to record. The green LED in the viewfinder is now a true
confidence signal that the unit is actually recording!
