C300MKii and Titan Extract

Can you use the Canon C300MKii with the Titan Extract setting? If so what are the camera setting to make this work. I set the camera to 4K or UHD and both the monitor out and record out to 4k but I only get green screens on the Odyssey. Camera is also set to 23.98 or 29.97. No luck. Any help would be appreciated.

The C300 Mark II will only output 4K/UHD out of the Rec Out port and only in raw. If Titan Extract doesn't work in conjunction with debayering the raw 4K/UHD signal from that port, then it will not work with the C300 Mark II.

Re: C300MKii and Titan Extract

According to the C300Mkii manual p.166 - the camera has two SDI interface terminals, the MON. Terminal and REC OUT terminal. You can connect an external recorder(p.165) to either terminal to record 4K RAW data. You can also apply a LUT to video output from both terminals(p.169).

But to your point I don't thing the Odyssey can convert the RAW signal for use with the Titan HD Extract function.

Re: C300MKii and Titan Extract

Dear Friends,

We support two general types of signals for the Titan HD Extract mode.

1. Video (and not Raw) from any camera that can output 4K or Ultra-HD via HD-SDI (which has to be in the 2SI Format), if using HD-SDI outputs. Camera examples are Sony F5 (with the 4K Upgrade) and Sony F55, and some other 4K/Ultra-HD cameras.

Some cameras output 4K/Ultra HD via HDMI and these are also accepted (see conditions in the next paragraph)

If one has the Odyssey7Q+ (and not the Odyssey7Q), then the 4K/Ultra-HD signal can also come in via HDMI. Specifically, 4K (4096 x 2160) up to 24 frames per second, or Ultra-HD (3840 x 2160) up to 30 fps.

If one has an Odyssey7Q or even an Odyssey7Q+, and the camera output 4K or Ultra-HD via HDMI, one can also use a HDMI to HD-SDI converter for signals up to 60 frames per second.

The converter must be able to output HD-SDI in 2SI mode (which typically is HD-SDI 3G Dual Link (Up to 30 fps) or HD-SDI 3G Quad Link (up to 60 fps). One converter that does this is the AJA HA5 4K, but be certain to set the output to 2SI mode.

Thus cameras that can output 4K/Ultra-HD via HDMI such as the Sony FS7 and Sony FS7 Mark II even if one does not have the FS7 XDCA Expansion Pack are also supported.

2. Raw from the Sony FS Series of Cameras, including the FS700 in Raw Mode, FS5 with the Raw Upgrade, FS7 with XDCA Expansion Pack (the XDCA), ant the FS7 Mark II with the XDCA.

Sony FS Raw is the only Raw mode that we support for the Titan HD Extract Mode.



So here is a specific example:

The C500 can output 4K Raw, but not 4K or Ultra-HD Video, so this camera is not supported for our Titan HD Extract mode.

1. No 4K or Ultra0HD Video output and
2. We do not support Canon Cinema Raw in this mode, sorry.

At this moment, I do not remember if the C300 Mark II outputs 4K or Ultra-HD Video via HDMI.
If it does, then the Odyssey7Q+ can support the HDMI output in Titan HD Extract Mode.

I hope this helps.

Respectfully,
