As I understand it from the preceeding posts, these products are variations on the concept of scan converters.
This would not have any effect on the rolling bar when shooting a computer screen live.
I recently did a TV commercial wherein I needed to do exactly what you describe - over the shoulder to a
computer screen. Professional cameras have an adjustment built-in that allows you to tweak the camera's scanning
rate to match that of the monitor. If you're shooting with prosumer equipment, though, I found two ways to deal
with the problem:
The first, best way is dependent on your having access to a lot of computers. I was shooting in a roomful of
computer screens, so I zoomed out wide to take them all in. On my monitor, I could see there was one among them
