The Sony FS7 camera is capable of sending 4k video signal from its HDMI output. Follow the steps below to set up the FS7.

  1. Go to the User menu
  2. Select the Codec menu item and set to XAVCi
  3. Select the Rec menu item and set to video format to 4096 29.97p or 23.98p
  4. Select the Output Format menu item and set HDMI out to 4096x2160P
  5. Connect the FS7 HDMI output to the PIX-E HDMI input

All of these criteria must be met to properly send 6G-SDI signal from the Blackmagic URSA camera to a PIX-E7 or PIX-E5 recording monitor:

  • Use a high quality SDI cable.
  • Connect SDI cable to the rear SDI output of the camera. The side output will only send HD signal.
  • Set the camera to record 3840 x 2160.
  • Set the the SDI mode of the camera to 4K.

The quality of the SDI cable is paramount. Many available cables do not meet the demanding requirements of the high bandwidth of 6 Gb/s signal.
