Is it possible to connect an HD video production camera to the HDX 8000.  The camera has both HDMI and SDI outputs.  Could I use a HDMI to DVI adapter and run it into the DVI-I input.  I realize I wouldn't have control of the camera, but we would have a camera operator running it.  Thanks.

You would only be able to run it into camera port 4 of the HDX 8000. None of the other camera ports support DVI signal. If it help I get this from the HDX admin guide  http://supportdocs.polycom.com/PolycomService/support/global/documents/support/setup_maintenance/pro... on page 3-21.

There IS a HDCI breakout cable to Component.   I use that all the time connecting to the "Video" board of a large event and they pass back the appropriate video resolution/signal.   In this case, you can use Port 2 for this signal.  Remember, you with HAVE to have a EE camera connected to Port 1 to pass IR if you are using the remote control.

This is very annoying with HDX. and even with GRP series i guess one has to use EE Camera for IR Remote to work. this is so inconvenient when we use HDX 8000 with external camera we have to place that **bleep** EE camera just to point the IR remote to it . why no one in Polycom Design team add one IR sensor to the codec also . Please lean somthing for Lifesize and other competitors..! we are in 2014 time to change Mr. Polycom.!

Hello PolycomIndia,

The Group Series 500 for example has the Infrared sensor in the unit itself and not in the camera and I believe this is the same for the 300 or 700.

 

For HDX's a serial port can be used to connect an external receiver.
