FCP/Avid Output to multiple machines

I visited Chris Hellier at Conan on the Warner Brothers lot this week. They needed a software update to work with the Sony PVW2000 machine. Chris uses an RM-6 to make multiple copies from FCP. The FCP makes an auto edit on the RM-6 as a single machine.  The RM-6 controls 5 machines and the same edit is made on each machine, saving a lot of time!

There are a number of settings to make on the RM-6 in order to optimise the performance, There is a data sheet on the RM-6 product page that itemises the changes and provide information on setting up the system.

Future orders that specify the RM-6M will ship with software where these are the default settings.
