  1. #1 Wireless Video Recommendation 
    Hello everybody,

    what are you using as wireless HD Videotransmitter? Is Teradek still the way to go?
    best wishes and kind regards,
    Martin

    Here's a take - they all suck. Now that I've chummed the waters, anyone care to make a case for a particular option?

    Hollyland (terrible name) will also be showing off new gear at NAB this year.

    I had the Ghost-Eye for a while. Worked fine - no problems. I'm now Vaxis 1000, which will communicate with Cinegears and Hollyland. Same chipset I think.

    The flexible antennae that came with the Vaxis are one less thing to worry about and connection has always been solid, even better than Tomahawks on a recent set.

    Read the headline and all I can think is Hydrogen.

    I really hope red makes it into a good video receiver and screen together with a transmitter module.

    Would be cool to attach phone to camera so it sends via its 4g signal or have a reciver module attached and a transmitter on the camera.

    I bought 5 of those things and if they turn out to be some gimmicky hologram screen / camera only I will be disappointed, I want it to be a Bolt, but a working one, and a remote all in one. Yes one that atleast does not loose connection when staying within sight, like my bolt can't seam to do. Hate that thing. Sure its one of the first models. But it really can only have a couple of meters between transmitter and reciver. Also have a couple of terradek cubes, even was dumb enough to go back and buy another one after buying the first one... the first one absolutely did not work. It had like a meter of range for short moments, and the later one was slightly better but both are basically useless in any kind of production environment.
