Switronix Wireless hd

Here is a test of it from a while back.
Models vary in price from $2700 to $3500 somewhere around there. It seems like a decent product but that 150 foot range seems a little weak to me. Could get annoying at times.
Can any high end hd wireless users chime in and throw their first take of this product out there?

I'll assume that the "1.8lbs" isn't per unit but rather the weight of both units together. I would wager the TX weighs less (no external antennas, which is interesting).
Anton Bauer "three stud" style coming in February.

The first disappointment that comes to mind with this unit isn't the transmission distance, but rather the lack of input options. HD-SDI marries this unit to the HD cameras world. A CVBS input for digital transmission of analog signal would have made the unit useful to we operators who still deal with that flimsy, plastic stuff you never have to reboot. Oh well, they sell $60 composite to HDMI converters.
Doesn't the recon ultra list both an HDMI and HD-SDI input?

Wait, I misread your post Will, I'm retarded.
Quoting to preserve this for all time!!

This may be a silly question, but are there any film cameras that output an HD signal for monitor?
Arri and Panavision both offer hd video taps

I of course bought a camwave 2 weeks before it hit the stores.

This is the next kit I'll be buying to test out for upgrades:
Sub 1-frame delay (20ms), 1080p, multicast (multiple receivers, so option is there for a clamshell AND receiver for village), 12v input, HDMI for HD as well as component, but also does composite video input, so it technically should work with film cameras or any CVBS signal. Also 140 feet (according to the white doc). All for $400.
All I currently foresee needing to make is a D-tap to DC plug power cable with 12v regulator (to make sure voltage is exactly 12v).
Decimator 2 or any HD-SDI to HDMI converter + this transmitter, and HDMI -> HDSDI converter + this receiver means sub-$2000 solution.

Thanks for posting this.

The 12v and the multicast capability are the most exciting, in my opinion.
