I tested the HD unit out for a few days several months ago The range was absolutely fantastic when I tested it outside. Crystal clear and sharp all of the 2 blocks I walked away from it. The receiver was on a C stand about 8ft high and there were plenty of trees between me walking down the street with an Epic and the Xmitter.
The only thing that didn't do it for me was the delay. It was about .3 seconds. which is too much for multi camera broadcast work.
The receiver I had was supposed to be made much smaller, but I haven't looked into it again to see what they're selling. It's based on the Microlite, I guess all the Vitec companies share stuff. RF Central, Bexel, Anton Bauer, Vinten, etc..

Is the Anton Bauer wireless $24,000?
I'm using the HPVideo without hiccups works fantastic.
And the cost of a new one is around 9K
Well below the 20K for a BOXX for the same range outdoors, indoors no problem.
Sold my Camwave useless outside althought they are fine indoors, price has dropped because a newer version with better range is coming.
my 2 Aussie cents

The delay on the Boxx is almost imperceptible in my experience with it.
The only experience I've had with the Camwave product was with the 5 version a couple of years ago and it was Horrible. An assist was running around with the receiver on a stand keeping 20 or so feet away from me, and they still were having drop outs, But I do blame it on the amount of props and steel and scaffolding in my immediate vecinity.

Pete I tried the HP video system shortly after it came out. I had terrible results with two separate systems and eventually returned both units. Not sure what happened especially since so many people have had such success with them.
As of now im betting on the Boxx to be an industry standard for the next few years.
