3.5mm Patch Cables
A required accessory to the LZX Visionary modules are 3.5mm patch cables to connect patch points on the modules together. A good rule of thumb is to count the number of patch points (jacks) in your system, divide this total by two, and purchase at least this many patch cables. A variety of lengths and colors in your cable selection can aid in efficient patching. Additionally, you may also consider stacking cables by TipTop Audio, either exclusively or to supplement your selection of normal 3.5mm cables.
RCA video cables are necessary for connecting the LZX Visionary system with external video gear, and sometimes BNC cables and BNC-to-RCA adapters are necessary to interface with broadcast video gear. There are many sources for these cables, the below list represents some of the more cost-effective sources.
Here are some links for very affordable security cameras and LCD preview monitors. While we recommend using nice CRT monitors for viewing your LZX Visionary’s output, these cheaper devices can be very handy for taking to a gig.
With the digital nature of most modern camera equipment, finding cameras with genlock inputs can be difficult. Used gear can often be found on eBay by searching using the genlock keyword.
A high quality video capture and conversion device is essential for professional results when recording the output of your LZX Visionary system for production environments. We use the Grass Valley ADVC-300 and love it.
