The DSMC2® V-Lock I/O Expander offers a variety of Input/Output connections, as well as an industry standard V-Lock mount to power your DSMC2 camera using RED BRICK® or other V-lock batteries. Constructed from lightweight and durable magnesium, this expander module mounts directly to the rear of the camera BRAIN® and offers connections for the following:
- DC Power input (DC-IN)
- HDMI 1.2 output (Type A socket)
- 3G-SDI output (HD-SDI, 75 Ω BNC)
- CTRL & SYNC ports (2x 00B 4-Pin, Timecode and Genlock support)
- AUX Power output (P-Tap 2-Pin female)
- USB Power output (Type A, 5 V at 1.5 A for powering HDMI transmitters or small mobile devices)
- Stereo Headphone output (3.5 mm jack)
- Stereo Analog input (3.5 mm jack)
The DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander also features a selector switch that enables the BRAIN to automatically boot when power is provided via the DC-IN connector on the expander. This feature allows you to use a connected DC input supply to turn the BRAIN on and off when the camera is mounted in remote or difficult to maneuver locations.
This expander is an ideal solution for a wide variety of production environments—from low-profile run-and-gun situations to studio shoots that require mobility.
NOTE: The DSMC2 Top Handle is NOT fully compatible with the DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander, as the top handle will interfere with most tall batteries when one is attached to the expander module.
NOTE: Only one (1) expander module can be used at a time.
