In the past, wireless reference monitoring from the camera meant a fuzzy standard definition image that was prone to interference. Now with the IDX Wevi CW-5HD Cam-Wave (that’s a mouthful so I’ll just call it the Cam-Wave), uncompressed HD transmission is available in a lightweight, small, camera-mounted solution. Both transmitter and receiver have male & female battery plates so they will fit between a camera (transmitter) and battery or monitor (receiver) and battery. Cam-Wave can also use outboard 12v or AC power. Units lock to one another automatically, and multiple receivers can connect to a single transmitter. The signal is rock-solid and perfect with a 150+ foot range. Oh, and it can handle standard definition SD-SDI as well. Abel rents the Cam-Wave in Anton Bauer mount with optional V-lock adapters or it can be purchased in V-lock (and Anton Bauer adapters are available).
