Nice dvd for a change

I could not be happier with the quality of the "HDMI in" recorded video by the x9.
This was half decently lit live theatrical recording of a Youth play "Snow White". I used 2 cameras, Sony AX100 and a5100 live switched with a Livewedge and the 1080p out from the Livewedge to the Hdmi In on the x9, recorded on a class 6 sd card in a usb3 reader and using FHD TS as the settings. The 1 hour 30 min production used only 5gb of space. (H.265)
Usually people buy a DVD version so when this ts video was transcoded and authored to DVD I was astounded at the high quality. Seriously.. viewing it on a 39" 4K screen it was at least as good as HD even though the dvd is only 720x480. Amazingly high quality.

Bruce,

I feel like I just walked into the middle of a conversation...am I supposed to know what an "x9" is? I did a web search and came up with some Zidoo Android player thingy...please elaborate.

Thank you

Re: Nice dvd for a change

Bruce,

The Cerevo is not yet available in the US (at least not at B&H) but I am very interested in this unit. Can you provide some insight on how this worked for you? Is this something that would hold up in a professional or at least semi-professional environment? What's the build quality?

Any other info would be much appreciated.

Thank you,
