You get a standard BNC connection for location monitoring and you can select to include overlays so your crew can monitor camera settings. Also included are ¼” audio inputs for mic/line level recording, a 3.5mm headphone jack, LANC control port and a Thunderbolt port for technical monitoring using a local computer and the included UltraScope software for Mac and Windows. You can also use Thunderbolt for live camera feeds into DaVinci Resolve for live grading.
