Im looking for a Transmitter to start.
Is a paralinx ace sdi a good one to start?
Or is a cheap one enough for live view for the Director ?

I've not had much experience with more expensive systems, but have used the paralinx HDMI version and various models of Teradek. I've just bought an Action Products Eclipse 500 and been very impressed with it's signal reliability and ability to go around corners as it's got external antennas on the Tx. It also does both SDI and HDMI and outputs both on the receiver regardless of what input you use which is nice. It's a touch more expensive than the Paralinx ACE but I think the more reliable signal due to the antennas and ability to send both HDMI and SDI is worth it It also does not make any annoying fan noise on the Rx like some Teradek models I've used do!
I think you should be wary of thinking that 'it's just the director's monitor, doesn't matter if it's cheap'. If you have a transmitter and are using it on set, if it craps out then its very annoying and everyone is looking at you while you are sorting out the problem, so if you can afford something reliable and built for purpose, definitely go for it.
