Aaton XTRprod B&W Video Assist Conversion to Color Flickerfree

Aaton XTRprodThe old XC-77 B&W video assist electronics is replaced by a new set which provides the color flickerfree video image in PAL or NTSC video formats. The conversion to a flickerfree color video assist is designed to produce a flickerfree monitor image for camera speeds above 10 fps. We offer two versions of the conversion: version 1 - timecode can be displayed on the monitor screen and version 2- without timecode.
