Demoed this on the movie I just finished. Liked it enough to purchase one. Contact David Hable @ Cramped Attic (604)254-8619. Specify which ant. you want. I went with a BNC. Channels 14-69.
10-36VDC. PRO cable compatible. What else can I say, same size as the Modulus and a nice replacement or backup without the headache. David is a nice guy and will listen to complaints or compliments(i.e. suggestions on how to make it better).

Nice David. If you have the opportunity to do a "shoot-out" with it against a Modulus somehow (both units on the same moving source, feeding two monitors) and report back the results, that would be great.

$2000.00 and it is the same cable as the PRO, video and power all in one.

We did a side by side with the Modulus and it was equal.

I just purchased one of these transmitters. I am currently doing an arricam job that had a canatrans on it. When we swapped it out, the cramped attic transmitter was as good or better than the canatrans. I will be using it every day in New York City until the movie wraps in December, I will post more info after I have used it for a few weeks. The stock antenna (non bnc connector) is very small and nice, the unit itself is quite small, much smaller than the canatrans. Great product so far.

Got one this week. Will try it out next week and post my review.

One good thing for modulus owners : you can use your modulus cables with it, it has the same pin configuration on the hirose connector. Also sends audio. So to complete Dave's post: the sender has the Hirose connector found on Modulus and David Hable can offer the PRO cable that sends video and power thru the same cable.

Model is VAT-25.
