I'm just starting out and I'm curious to know what would be a good starter wireless video transmitter? I've seen different kinds and I'm looking at used since I'm beginning. I also have a flyer LE rig that I use. I have seen one called the transvideo titan how is that brand?

it depends on your market. on my market titan sd is the standard sd transmitter so i invested on these-also they are bullet proof-. by using a transmitter generally used in your area you can just give the receiver to the video assist and then he/she could set it up while you're seting-up the rig.

 

if you invest in titan SDs, know that there are 2 versions availeble:

US version, metal housing and 4 channels.

EU version , metal housing covered in plastic in order to prevent interference and 10/4 channels.

 

also high performance 9Db titan antenna does wonders about the already impressive range.

Will's Modulus is crap. I could not get that damn thing to work. In all fairness, it was probably user error.

I keep forgetting to take pictures but I have a great transmitter and director's monitor package for sale. Dynawave, plug and play functionality of the Modulus and cable compatibility but more modern design, comes in a package with the Camos handheld director's monitor with handles, plus batteries. Check the Cramped Attic site for pictures of both units. If anyone is interested, let me know.
