Unlike the Sony HD7 which uses DVI out, the new camera uses USB 3.0 out. Therefore, the DVI to USB adapter is no longer mandatory to connect the camera to a VidyoRoom.
For customers who are using the VidyoPanorama™ 600, Vidyo has certified and recommends the Sony SRG 120-DH camera, which has an HDMI port for video out. It will connect to the VP600 via an HDMI to DVI cable to the "DMS59 to DVI" Y-dongle to the Dual Port PCle Capture Card.
