Live Feed/Closed Circuit Help

I'm not sure where to put this, so I'll start here.

I've been asked to record an event which will probably have an overflow crowd. I'll be using an HMC150. The overflow crowd, in theory, will be watching flatscreens from adjacent rooms. I've been asked to set it up so that whatever I'm recording can also be transmitted to a flatscreen or two. Or maybe from a separate camera entirely. I've never received such a request before. Is it easily feasible? What hookup or gadgetry would be required?

Put it another way, how would you even approach this situation from scratch?

Thanks!

Probably HD flatscreens; the room annex where they would be set up would probably not be very large (20' x 20'?), compared to the main event area. I assume the sound would be limited to the flatscreen TV(s) involved.

Then too, what if I also utilize a DVX100 if needed as a "camera station?"

Re: Live Feed/Closed Circuit Help

Anyone? I'm pretty ignorant on this issue, such as how practical it would be to set up remote feeds while I'm recording an event.

Thanks for any tips.

Re: Live Feed/Closed Circuit Help

Depending on how far the adjacent rooms will be, you would need Video Distribution amp, it's very cheap to rent ( $ 25-$35/day). I am not familiar with your camera but the DA would have a BNC input & output, the HD Monitors would take RCA. I would hand over the audio to the guys manning the PA system, ask the client to tell them that they need to run cables to an HD Monitor for the overflow crowd.

My 2 cents

Re: Live Feed/Closed Circuit Help

Sorry, I missed the reply here.

Noel has it. You will need an amplifier to send the composite signal from the camera to the monitor. The cable type and length will determine how much amplification is required.

Analog SD is the easiest and cheapest solution.
