Two new wireless transmission systems that can transmit up to 500m with minimal latency have been launched by Pro-X.
The XW-HDU04 system, which offers 300m transmission distance in open space, and the XW-HDU06 (500m), both operate in the 5.1-5.9GHz band. They transmit uncompressed HD-SDI video and audio from any standard ENG broadcast camera to field monitors with a latency of less than 1ms, so that the director, producer and other crew members can see exactly what the camera is shooting in realtime.
Both the TX and RX modules of the HDU04 have Tally indicator, and offer a simplex intercom, both features absent from the HDU06.
The systems can be powered by battery or by DC input via XLR-4p connector. They also have a back-up power failure function. If the external power is disconnected, they automatically switch to a connected battery.
