I think the order completed notice I got was a mistake, I submitted a ticket and the reply confirmed it. Hopefully soon.

I do direct video feedback as a rule and use all kinds of displays with no troubles.
Where I have issues with lcd monitors is from moving them around a lot, dropping them, carrying them under my arms and scratching them up, etc...

that uzeus will barely cover the 12- demands of those modules. I've used uzeus for video with acceptable results in the past but the 500ma on the neg rail makes them limiting. You would want to have the brick that maxes out the uzeus positive rail at 2A if you go that route. if you can swing it, you...

my local Frys has those epson's mentioned by mk for $289
http://www.frys.com/product/8597999?sit ... IN_RSLT_PG

It has +/-30 degrees horizontal keystoning which the acer does not have.

I'm going to pick one up to see how they compare.

You would want to build a cadet sync gen and rgb encoder first. Along with those, I'd say vco(or 3), at least one crossfader, processor, ramps, and keyer, and scaler. You could build out the sync gen and encoder then breadboard the rest to see what you like. The cadet circuits are the basics that th...

Do you have the genlock of the camera hooked up to the sync gen or encoder?
It looks like stuff I have hooked up with it not in sync

Video Synthesis Selling Category

Just curious what category people use on ebay, reverb, craigslist, etc... when selling video synthesis gear. I generally use eurorack modular but wondered if there are better categories.

I'm wondering ; if I wanted to rotate a rectangle of video input signal (from a camera or other video source), how would you map that onto the keyed image? I am sure you can get some cool effects keying a external source into the shape but to spin the external video source I think is beyond the sco...

a great option for anyone into DIY (or with a kind friend who is) are the Thomas Henry 555VCO oscillators. These can be easily modded to cover the entire useful frequency range for video synthesis, from low, to horizontal lines up to vertical lines. Great tip, thanks! How "smooth" is the sine on th...

yes you need a sync gen but you will need something to feed the cve unless you just are looking for solid fields of colour. you may want the cadet video input if you want to use a camera/video feed or get a cadet vco for some h/v bars.
