I’ll try this again… for some reason my last post didn’t get through.
OK… I am planning on broadcasting/streaming live high school sporting events next year. I am essentially a one man show with student volunteers as helpers. Because I don’t work directly with students (although I work for a large school corporation) it is hard for me to get volunteers as needed. I have done live sports before, and one of the biggest pains is set up and take down. Running wires half the length of a football field every Friday night doesn’t grab me as fun.
Can anybody suggest some wireless video options? I know it’s expensive, but I have a pretty decent budget. Must have zero latency, and audio is a plus but not mandatory. I will be plugging the cameras into a Tricaster, and have that ready to go… a pretty nice set up, actually.
Thanks for any help!

Search B&H for “wireless video transmission.” You’ll find quite a bit of gear there.
I suggest you call B&H and talk to some of their very knowledgeable people for advice regarding which unit to purchase for your application.

Thanks Jack. That’s exactly why I came here… because there was SO much on B&H. I’ll give them a call.

Let us know what you decide on… I’m also looking for a RELIABLE Wireless Video Transmission system without having to fork out 40-50K$…
2-5k$ would make me very happy.

All – I am in a VERY similar situation. I was looking at getting the
“IDX CW-5HD Wevi Cam Wave HD-SDI Uncompressed Video & Audio Wireless System”
It is available on B&H but we use the
“Sony HVR-HD1000U Digital High Definition HDV Camcorder”
Not sure the transmitter will work with the camera and I would have to modify the camera to mount it or have some way to wear it on a backpack or something
Have you found anything else out?
