Hi. We have 3 Sony BRC-300 remote control cameras set up in an auditorium with runs as long as 200 ft. We are using S-Video and sending it via Kramer transmitter/receivers over CAT-5. The video in the booth is softer than we would like. We’re wondering if it is worth investing in one of the output cards offered for the camera (component, SDI, fiber, or Firewire) and changing video format. I don’t want to spend a lot of money for a marginal quality increase. If you’d recommend upgrading to a better format, which one? Thanks. – Paul

The eases way is to send it optically, it is easy and very inexpensive now to change the SDI format to fiber, we use Thor SDI to Fiber transmitter / receiver kit for $359 in our studio
http://thorbroadcast.com/sklep-240/produkt-222 it works for 20Km of fiber , excellent video quality , They have 1,2,4 and 8 SDI over fiber for $5K
