Is this monitor recommended for an 1st AC to work with perfectly
Asked by: Felix
Yes the PORTKEYS BM7 II DS 7" could fill many functions on set for monitoring. However the Display would need to be close to the camera for control as well as connected to the video output of the camera it is being used with.. We would recommend considering Teradek and and smallHD solutions for wireless monitoring and control of professional cameras like RED and others for your set.
