As shown in the feature, one can have dual video AV/HD through lightbridge. But, my requirement is somewhat different and i want to know if this is possible.

a. TX/RX control using Teranis X9D - I want to keep using Teranis TX-RX direct connection and not via the 2.4G system of the lightbridge.
b. I have dual video setup through iOSD Mark II (800line CCD + GH4 AV analogue transmission) to 8" FPVFever dual diversity screen, I want to leave it as it is.
c. I want to get GH4 HD video out via lightbridge to my iPAD mini .

Basically, I want to use the lightbridge for HD video transmission from GH4 exclusively and no other reason. I do not even want OSD on the ipad mini.  For my FPV camera, i trust the good old 5.8GHZ analogue 250mw Fatshark VTX transmitter . I want to keep it plug n play type where during test flights , i can use just my screen and have the dual video switching through iosd mark 2 and during serious shooting, i can switch to 2 independant video transmission (AV on FPVFever sceeen + HD on ipad mini) .

You should not run a 2.4ghz radio with the LB. It has been tested and does not work well at all. You would either need to get a 433mhz module or just use the LB control link. Using the iOSD and 5.8vtx is fine. You can turn the OSD information off on the ipad, just tap the screen.

ok.. you mean i must use the 2.4ghz frequency through light bride . why? All i need to use the LB is to transfer HD video to the iPad.

Because you will either lock up the video on the lb or even worse your radios control link.

so, to summarise, there is no way i can exclude the LB to connect to DJI A2 or Zenmuse GCU unit.

Question about the dual video source: if there is a lag on the HD signal on slave monitor, will it be same for the FPV camera on the master monitor?

The delay depending on your equipment is about 220ms.

Thanks. I will give it a go with the inspire 1 first. IF it doesn't meet my satisfaction, i am looking to invest in Teradek 2000ft no delay HD system, or may be wait for another 5-6months for that thing which might change how we fly drone.
