After working with an Aatonsystem for a while, I'm back to the evertz 4025.
Now I'm having the same problem that the keycode isn't updating fast enough.
Our telecine-prep doesn't put leader in between cam. rolls, so the tailpunch
is sometimes only a few frames apart from the next headpunch.
aaton, that wasn't a problem. Since keylink V5.2 it updates the keycode
within a frame - not the evertz thou. Sometimes clients complain when the
punches are off by a frame. To avoid that, there seem's to be only one way -
read the new keycode and put evertz in "jam never". Well, that sure slows you
down, espacially when the client is burning shortends (I hate that!) and you
end up having 10 cam. rolls an a labroll.
Now, I'm wondering if the slow
update is a problem with the reader (Digisync, evertz) or the evertz 4025?
Does the location of the readerhead to the gate make a difference?
Foto-Kem, the readerheads on the mark III's are all mounted after the first
tensionarm and the next roller. Is there maybe a better location? Further
away from the gate?
One more - since that nice "JAM" button on the
evertzpanel still doesn't work (when you press it twice it say's "STILL
DOESN'T WORK" - I hate that too ;^) ), is there a way to just wire a
switch between the evertz and the reader to interrupt keycode reading so once
it has the new keycode, prerolling into the previous roll doesn't affect the
new keycode read?
Hmm, I'm just wondering if I'm the only one with this
problem (terrible thought..)
