Anton Bauer was showcasing their wireless system which allows the camera operator to transmit an HD signal remotely from up to ½ mile away from the central receiving location (booth, satellite truck, et al). It allows for multiple cameras to transmit to one central location allowing a director to make real time adjustments. Here is Anton Bauer’s description:
“The Gold Spectrum Wireless Series, a compact 5.8 GHz COFDM RF system which transmits a robust HD signal over great distances, all the while being powered by Anton/Bauer Logic Series® batteries.
The system utilizes the 5.8 GHz frequency band allowing operation without the need for an FCC license. The AB-HDTX transmitter sends its signal directly to the AB-HDRX dual-diversity receiver or the AB DirectVu handheld confidence monitor/receiver. The unit's size makes it ideal for reality-based, ENG/EFP and live event coverage.
The Gold Spectrum Series products have an RF output of 100 mW and is capable of accepting a wide range of HD/SD video formats along with embedded audio from the HD SDI output on the camera. The use of MPEG-4 compression allows the signal to travel more than a half-mile in line-of-site applications. The system offers users the flexibility to be able to choose from 12 different channels in which to transmit to ensure the least amount of interference. The Gold Spectrum Wireless Series products are certified with CE and FCC Part 15. “
