IDX camwave CW-5HD

just thinking if there was a tv truck,flypac or video village more than
100 to 500 feet away from set
would it be possible to run the receiver up hi or wherever it may work,
thats out of the way from other interference which could cause problems.
Would it be possible to run an sdi cable from the receiver to the truck,flypac
or even video village and still get the same results
with a clean picture and no latency
not sure if this has been tried out or not,
reason i ask is i haven't heard anything about this type of set up.
But do you think it is possible

For certain shots such as traveling between floors in an elevator, there's a good chance that transmission will be lost but this has always been the case for this sort of shot unless one has done elaborate pre-wiring of diversity antennas for standard RF transmission. The Camwave doesn't have diversity functionality though.

The last time I had the Camwave out on set it didn't recognize the Sony flavor of 24p (24sfp...? is that right?) and it was back to the drawing board--haven't heard anything since about the unit, although I have sent emails to the rep. If it takes them a while to get this dialed in, it might get interesting as the Boxx folks are due to have their unit out by the end of the year.
when i spoke with the idx guys they had
mentioned that they were working on an upgrade
but they didn't mention what the upgrade was
we can only hope that was one of them
that was around the time i last posted about this unit

Thats what Kyle from Boxx emailed me today.
So for around what a transvideo with all the bells or a tiffen hd monitor cost. You can get the transmitter with build in down converter. Transmit any format from SD pal/ntsc to hd up to 1080p with no delay. While at the same time passing through or downconverted image to the monitor.

I was also looking at the Boxx site, and would love to run a side by side comparison when the two units are available for a real test.

The same here for the JVC HD251 on 720P.
Yes, it works perfectly with the 720p output from the RED One..
Very good quality. Very happy with the unit so far.
