Does anyone know for how much the SIM breakout + downconverter will run?
ET's B-box is $580. It is nice and compact.
I'd be very surprised if the Sim downconverter/BOB could be anywhere south of $2500. The AJA downconverter is almost that much by it's self, I've priced the boards and they're $1200-1500 alone. We'll have to see but from what I gather Sim is trying to place their products in a higher price tier than ET. We'll have to wait till NAB to see if the design and quality warrant the extra $.
$580 for a "breakout box" that just changes four ports pisses me off too much to buy it. I know ET is a small company, and I should have more sympathy. I guess I'm more upset that Red didn't make one for $200 tops.
I believe there are a lot of other solutions coming.. Everyone knows this is needed.
But Shawn, I'm bummed to say, this add-on will be pricy no matter how you cut it. Dissappointing but true.
Personally I am very excited to see what NAB holds.
love my ET box. well designed and very unobtrusive.
Where can i purchase this and other ET products? It's not available on ET and RED's website to order...
you have to contact them through their website,
but the 19 mm baseplate is avaible through red
