Timecode Out Of a Mini?

Tue Sep 05, 2017 2:24 am

Hi,

I was wondering does the Alexi Mini output timecode? I have been trying to get a it to talk to this small stablizer box (SteadXP.com) and I can’t seem to make it work. Is there any settings that I should have the camera on for it to output timecode.

Thanks Michael

Hello Michael,

Mini outputs a TC on its connector by default. There are no settings needed.

Looking at the SteadXP device, there's no TC connector. They use the mic-jack:
SteadXP+ uses the stereo audio input of your camera to synchronize itself with video recording.


You need to build yourself a connector cable that feeds to the line-In of your Mini. You will need to test if the output level of the SteadXP is fine for that setup.

Audio cable K2.0006171
ARRI offers a cable with a matching connector to create audio adapters. The following table shows the wire assignments of this cable.
