I am interested in having my own wireless video transmitter and receiver. What is the best system to put on a steadicam so you can transmit the video feed wirelessly to a village so the director or director of photography can see your shot.  Terakek? Paralinx? What is commonly used.

 

Thanks!

Hey Eric, I have recently been using the paralinx arrow and normally it works like a charm! Sometimes it can have issues if village is hidden behind a wall. The transmission can get a little glitchy by big objects, but for the most part it has been a very reliable system. I hope this helps!

I was on a shoot yesterday and the production was using Vaxis Storm and they worked perfectly .The 1st AC loved them .

Good luck .

Thanks Isaac and Louis for the input. Just looking for reliability without problems all the time. I see the Teredek Bolt used a lot, seems pretty good. Just want input from others so I can do my research and find what best works for me.

Bolt is the old standby. Boxx Atom is also very good.
