    Wireless video transmission kit question.

    Does anyone here use a wireless video transmission kit. I have one but the range is questionable for what I need it for now. I need something that easily gets 500-600 feet line of sight. I have checked and found that the Cinegears Ghost-Eye Wireless HD &SDI Video Transmission Kit 150M V2 is a nice piece with good range. Anyone care to comment? Thanks.

    From what I seen on the internet you are looking at 3500 - 5000 for a setup.

    There are some video reviews on YouTube which are pretty good. The ones on B&H are mostly good with 2 bad. I need something in this price range for sure. Our budget can't afford 5k.

    We use a Teradek Bolt 300 for a basketball and football sideline cam. It has been flawless.

    I've heard great things about the Ghost Eye units. I like that you can input hdmi or sdi and the price is definitely appealing.

    We have the Teradek Bolt 1000 and 3000 and have been VERY pleased! Range is incredible even non-line-of-sight. The only issue that they don't disclose is that it will get blocked by some window tints. Doors, walls, etc usually fine. But going through a glass skyscraper wall without window openings?... nope.

    I'm curious if "rigging" a NewTek Spark to the camera then using the EnGenius WiFi outdoor antenna kit would work? The Spark is $799 for SDI model and has built-in WiFi transmitter with dual diversity antennas. Then the long range EnGenious kit runs for around $160.
    The Spark needs 12V which could go to a pro battery tap but I don't know how much current it draws to estimate how long it would last.
    You will need latest version of AE and you only need to buy your long range WiFi once and add Sparks as needed.

    Just thinking outload

    Take care,

    The Spark looks like a viable option but for something else I want to do. I want to possibly add another camera to our stream and this would help with a stationary cam we have on our clock. I could use the Spark on that cam. This would free up another HDMI slot so we could hook up another cam for a different angle. I just have to do some more research on how the Spark actually hooks up to the Mini. I'm not sure how it would work for what I want to do??? My cam has an HDMI output which would go into the Spark but how does the Mini actually receive the signal from the Spark? I've seen literature on it but what I've seen has been pretty generic and doesn't explain enough. Maybe, I'm just too ignorant but I don't quite get it. Do I need a router or a switch.
    My internet is not on a wireless router where I am going to be using it. I wish I had a video to actually see how a hook up would be done.

    Make sure you have Advance Edition version 5 latest, which includes the NDI HX drivers. Then connect the Spark to the same computer network. The need to be on same subnet mask so easiest way is get a WiFi router switch with GigE Ethernet. Connect all TriCaster NDI equipment to same WiFi router switch

    I have the latest version of AE. So a router is necessary and not just a switch?
