8 camera switching flicker problem, how do I solve it

Recommended Posts

Dear Forum,


I am currently trying to put together an 8 camera system to record a miniature architectural diorama in realtime. The diorama is 1:50 scale and rotates one an hour using geared motors. I want the eight cameras to cut between different scenarios on the model, either sequentially or manually. I guess what I want to do is build a miniature tv studio with min cameras.


I have eight cameras, they are 8 480tvl 1/4-inch Panasonic D5 CCD mini cctv cameras. I also have a baxall dvs switcher. My problem is that i'm getting flicker between camera changes. So far everything has been bought on a shoestring budget but I need to resolve this issue with the flicker. What hardwear solution, either as a stand alone box or computer card could I use to solve this issue.


Any thoughts would be greatly received.

this problem occurs because of two reason


1. your cameras are not matching , which ever camera is flickering replace that camera with other one


2. your monitor's sync is not proper replace monitor and check,

Not familiar with the camera you quoted.


Does this camera have a synchronization adjustment? Internal or Line-lock?
