The Pro Tally allows Steadicam operators to see when they're live by sensing the light emitted from any broadcast camera tally light. The Pro Tally is compatible with most sleds, and redundant power/tally connectors means that the possibilities are endless.
The Pro Tally features a composite enclosure with confirmation LED, 36" light sensor cable, two Neutrik NanoCON connectors for one or two cable operation, and four bright, forward-facing red LEDS; when active, the on-camera talent can't miss them. The box can be attached to a matte box with Velcro or tape.
Power and tally through one or two connectors
Power and tally are fed through two 3-pin Neutrik NanoCON connectors (pin-1 GND, pin-2 12V/24V, pin-3 Tally) on the top stage of the sled. The tally line connects to the monitor output on the bottom stage where it activates the monitor's internal tally circuit with a highly compatible open-drain output (normally open, pull to ground when active).
The Pro Tally features a 36" cable that terminates to light sensor encased in Velcro that, when installed over the camera's tally light, will sense when the light is active.
A sensitivity adjustment potentiometer allows the Pro Tally to activate at various luminosity levels for bright or dim on-camera tally lights.
Additional Tally Box (optional)
The Tally Box features four bright red LEDs installed in a composite enclosure and two of the same redundant Neutrik connectors as present in the Pro Tally. This allows use of the same cables as the main unit, making it the perfect companion for your operator monitor on the bottom stage.
Power and tally cables
Choose which cable best suits your needs. All cables are 36" in length by default, but can be ordered in custom lengths on request. Cables are either power-only, tally-only, or power/tally combo cables.
