High Definition Closes In

August 19, 2008

A new wireless transmitter from IDX will let high-definition TV cameras go where they never could before. The transmitter can send a high-­definition signal 150 feet, saving cameramen from stringing cable in harsh or cramped environments or setting up costly, bulky microwave transmitters. What’s more, the video signal is uncompressed, so producers don’t have to worry about time delays when they’re cutting between cameras at, say, sporting events or political rallies.
