Reprinted from a Laird press release:
Directing a DV camera shoot has been a near impossible task with cameras running wild. Laird Telemedia has developed a solution with an exciting new on-camera wireless video transmitter system entitled WaveShot. Canon or Sony camera batteries clip on to the WaveShot bracket to power the miniature wireless transmitter. WaveShot transmits a crisp and clear image wirelessly to any UHF ready pocket or tabletop TV–up to 300 feet. Now a director can see exactly what his camera crew is shooting and “call the shots”.
WaveShot features exclusive FastPan technology that allows smooth transmission of the video image during rapid camera panning, eliminating image lag found on other inferior systems.
A complete system is supplied in a hard molded carry case featuring the WaveShot transmitter with integral camera battery clip (Canon or Sony style), lightweight and fully adjustable aluminum camera bracket, all necessary cables and full instructions. There is a choice of six UHF channels based on the unused TV channels in your area. The USA list price for this complete system is $495.00.
The WaveShot system is primarily designed for directing a multi-camera DV production but is also right at home in other areas of film & video production such as Steadicam and video assist.
