Video mixer questions

Hi!

I don’t have any experience with video mixers and I was hoping if I get one I would be able to mix my television’s output with a live video camera output with that camera focused on the television screen. Would I encounter any sync issues with this or could I go as far as to get a cheap / basic mixer to accomplish this without any issues?

Is there anything else I should consider seeing as this mixer will be used with my LZX and BPMC gear?

Thanks!!!

Some mixers have a built in TBC (like the edirol v4/v8), and if so it will be fine. otherwise you need to have a camera with genlock or some way of synchronizing the inputs.

the old panasonc video mixers are nice but bulky and possibly noisy. i like the edirol mixers since they are small and packed with features
