I've been using this system for almost a year now.

It's absolutely fantastic. Reliable and rock solid digital transmission. They will add whatever connectors and pin out you require to the TX or RX which is handy.

Customer service is excellent and very quick.

Lots of people in the UK are familiar with this system, and video assist ops love it. There is always a smile on their face when I hand over the flight case.

Great price too. I have the 1.15Ghz-1.4gGhz range link. Zero break up, never had a problem with it. Fantastic for film jobs where you don't need to be transmitting HD and don't need the bulk of a transmitter to go with it. Usually I run the system with 1 antenna attached, as depending on the range of use you can overload the receiver and breakup will occur. With 2 antennas attached you are good for a few hundred meters, and they also do some high gain antennas which screw on to replace the regular ones, presumably if video village is on the moon...

The transmitter is a little on the heavy side, but overall not particularly a problem.

All well built and durable.

Can't recommend it enough.

Rick.

They sell the 100mW for video assist, which is more than adequate. The 1W version is designed for camera links requiring more power, onboard camera in an F1 car for example.
