Using a third-party wireless monitoring system that is powered from a source external from the camera itself might damage your camera.
Some of the transmitters for wireless monitoring systems require ~7-17V unregulated input voltage. When this power comes from an external source - such as a third-party battery or battery plate - the HDMI and 3G-SDI output connectors on the camera BRAIN or DSMC2 expanders/modules can be damaged.
RED recommends that you avoid using wireless monitoring systems powered by external sources with your camera and expanders/modules.
The following devices offer a USB Power output connector and are intended for use with accessories requiring additional power, such as wireless transmitters:
- DSMC2 REDVOLT Expander
- DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander
- DSMC2 Jetpack Expander
- DSMC2 Production Module
For more information, download the corresponding operation guide for your camera.
If you experience issues monitoring out of your RED camera, save a log file and submit a Support ticket.
