HDMI to Wireless HD transmitter?

By 15 Apr ’10No Comments

SO i saw this article this morning on Gizmag and it begged the querstion:

Could this be a solution for shooting with DSLR setups?

Its The TruLink 1-Port 60GHz WirelessHD Kit which is designed to be a domestic product to help tidy up the clutter of cables in your home. However i think it could be use in a production setup. It has a 60Ghz transmission capability which suggests it could cleanly transmit a good signal across a room.

the 7D and 550D can both output a 1080i signal through their HDMI ports albeit with guides. This can be overcome but at the moment its tricky. I can’t help but think that we are only a few firmware updates away from getting full 1080p with an option for guides out of those lil HDMI ports! If that happens then Rock and Roll we all shall be!

One of the biggest snags on DSLR setups is the 12min shoot limit. I don’t think there is a reliable solution for overcoming this at the moment which is sad. Limits come with the Cards and file-structures and tax issues. However the above gadget could be a solution to receive the signal and record on to a separate device in what ever format you choose.

Imagine being able to record wirelessly direct to ProRes straight in to a Mac? – Nice!

Thanks to GIZMAG and theC47 for info and images.
