Boxx might do it, if not gigawave can get some crazy range on their wireless links.

I've done a 1/4 mile easy at Zuma Beach with the Boxx and the external antenna array.  Depends on your budget mostly.

Microlite has really long range(Nebtek has them for rent) and Noodles ( (818) 406-7102

) has one that will easily cover that range, but $$$. Both have delay. Don't think the Boxx or HP will be 1/2 mile reliant.

Hi Richard 

Have a look at this test done in LA . On the receiver end they have a 20 x 20 5 way antenna which helps in the extended range .I don't know how hires the Boxx in LA .

 

Good luck

Thank you all for the replies and assistance.  We have rented the Microlite HD from Nebtek in LA.  It promises the 1/2 mile range...  Hopefully it will live up to its claim.  I will report back on how the shoot goes on Monday.  This BTW is not an inexpensive rental at $750 a day.  Delay not a big deal as producers/ writers  are going  to be a long way off and  Just need to see everything.   For the record.. I own a BOXX (it is away on rental however )  and I just purchased a Teradek Bolt.  I didn't feel either was the right tool for this job and had production get what I think is the right tool.

 

 Louis thanks for the video, I didn't think my BOXX would go that far, awesome...  unfortunately that would still be to short for Monday's  shoot.  Doc and Alan thanks for the reminder as I had completely forgotten about Nebtek and Microlite in xmitter debates over the last year.  

 

I will report my findings on Monday.

 

Thanks again,

I use the Transvideo Titan HD, and it performs really well. Havent tested how far, but the image is rock solid in any environment I have used it in.

Gaylen( and all interested),

 

 Microlite was solid for distances, terrain was a bit of a challenge as there were turns in our hills we were not expecting (production slightly changed  location.)  I was impressed with the ease of use on the Microlite, and the weight was very low.  There is a small delay which when dealing over long distance was not an issue, but would potentially be a challenge in close set use.  All in all, a good solution to my needs for the shoot ( long distance to village, traveling on grip trix )

 

Thanks everyone at Nebtek and Gaylen for all the assistance.  Thanks Doc for bringing it to my attention!!   great product!

 

Best regards,
