To answer my own question... There doesn't seem to be any other way. AJA has been very accommodating, and shipped me a replacement board. Now, anyone have any ideas why Control Room sees the board, bu

Be *very* careful using this set of drivers. I bricked my corvid 3G using the firmware update feature. It may also affect other boards as well.

I've been involved with those kinds of facilities before, but not in a video capacity. Best thing to do, is ask them exactly what they want you to do. Describe to them what your needs are and together

Hi, I was just wondering if the Rode VideoMic is good as a shotgun mic or would something like Audio-Technica AT897 be better Same question for voice overs also Thanks
