Depending on what you're looking to do, a cheap and easy thing is ebay search up whdi. you can get a transmitter the size of a usb stick that'll transmit hdmi for a short distance

Take a look at the hot rod camera booth at cine gear. Word is, there will be a small company bringing whdi to the pro market.

I really doubt you're going to find something to do HDMI over 1 or 2 KM for $1000-2000. That's less than what some decent SD transmitters go for, and especially to do broadcast quality.

I think Guilherme means he's looking for something costing $1,000-$2,000 USD (he says: "1 or 2 K us").

Guilherme, I've heard good reports about the Switronic Recons so far, although I think they're priced up to get their early dollars before we'll see a modest price cut. Otherwise, keep an eye out, someone must have something on the horizon.

For the range of 1km - 2 km live broadcast, $1000 to $2000 just might covers for a day of rental only.

There is no such HDMI or even SD system with that coverage range sold for $2000 or less.

Cheers,

Ken Nguyen.

Thank you all
Now, I know, I wont find what i dreamed about. in reality, I will have to give up on price or quality,
What is ok as long as I can get the best cost for the bucks.
Thanks for the links anyway will do my research on them

Have a look at the Paralinx Arrow. Its fairly new, im sharing a booth with them at Cinegear.

Its very small and light, its like a USB stick with an HDMI plug on it, it almost weighs nothing. Its uncompressed 1920x1080 HD with very low latency maybe 2 frames or so. Its cheap at 999 dollars including cables.

I'll check out the Paralinx today, but with the specs I see online and the price I can finally say: SOMEONE GOT IT!!!!

I need to see the powering options, but it looks good.

There's a discussion about it on Reduser.net, too. Looks like it's loosely based on the consumer WHDI solutions with a few refinements. Reception could be limited by the lack of multiple antennas?

Tx powered by a d-tap to 5V converting cable (included), Rx by 5V USB Lithium batteries (which I don't think are included). Looking forward to your impressions!

Isn't it HDMI only? That's not so good.
