Wi-Fi built for reliability

The new CW-F25 Wireless HD Video System from IDX boasts improved image quality with enhanced reliability.

To maintain the resilience of the link, it uses Dynamic Frequency Selection, to automatically choose the best available Wi-Fi channel, plus Beamforming Technology between the transmitter and receiver, to limit interference from other 5GHz users.

It also uses Adaptive Variable Bit Rate to prevent sudden disconnection. Together, these are claimed to deliver greater reliability than other Wi-Fi-based wireless systems.

To allow it to be mixed seamlessly with wired camera systems, CW-F25 uses 4×4 MIMO channels with ODFM/64QAM modulation, giving a maximum data rate of 300Mbps.

This supports H.264 25Mbps 4:2:2 10-bit high profile video with four channels of high quality embedded PCM audio, with a typical latency of six frames/250mS, and a typical transmission distance of 1500m (line of sight).

Return video, intercom, tally and RS-422 remote control are supported, while Ethernet I/O at both transmitter and receiver creates a wireless bridge to support an IP camera feed, remote controller or other data link.

Both units have one HD-SDI input and two HD-SDI outputs. Either unit requires 7~17v power via a 4-pin XLR input, and consumes about 15 Watts.
