It’s impressive how news crews can descend upon a scene and broadcast live video within minutes of their arrival. This is made possible in part by the use of wireless broadcasting equipment that can put you on the air in no time. Digital video and audio can be transmitted from roaming camera crews for live-to-air transmission for viewing on a remote monitor or for immediate reference on a laptop computer. RF Extreme’s RFX-NLL-II and Pro-Link HD can make it all happen.

Monitoring in the field is a lot different than sitting back in your favorite easy chair in a dimly lit room, watching a good movie. For one, you must power everything by battery in the field and two, sunlight often drowns out your screen. Field monitors have to be built more ruggedly than the gear you leave at home. Marshall’s V-LCD651STX-3GSDI lightweight on-camera field monitor has you covered on all accounts.
