Hollyland Mars X Overview

The Hollyland Mars X 1080p HDMI Wireless Video Transmitter, in a compact design with foldable antennas, allows you to transmit an HDMI signal to up to three iOS/Android mobile devices. With this capability, multiple people on set can monitor an image at different locations. The Mars X supports up to 1080p60 resolution and is capable of wirelessly transmitting the signal up to 328' line-of-sight. With only 70ms of latency, the transmission delay is near zero. A synchronization feature ensures that your audio and video are delivered at the same time to your mobile devices.

The Mars X is powered by a built-in battery, adding to its self-contained, portable design. The battery runs for up to one hour and is rechargeable via a USB Type-C port in approximately 2.5 hours. Other features include an OLED display screen that confirms the battery status, frequency channel, video format, and Wi-Fi password. Also, the transmitter's design has rounded aluminum corners that allow it to better withstand accidental hits and bumps.

The Mars X offers eight frequency channels so you can try to avoid interference in areas where this may be an issue. The transmitted image can be view on a mobile device using the dedicated companion iOS/Android HollyView app, and the app additionally provides monitoring features such as zebra, waveform, false color, and more. To help locate interference, the app also features a channel scan function for detecting interference and then selecting the best of the eight transmission channels possible.

The transmitter provides two 1/4"-20 mounting threads (one on the bottom and one on the rear), and it comes with a shoe mount to 1/4"-20 adapter so that you can attach it to your camera, camera cage, or a supporting accessory.

Note:
Interlaced format input signals, such as 1080i, are not supported. Also, Hollyland has confirmed that the following cameras are not compatible with the Mars X: Canon 6D, 60D, 5D Mark II, 80D, and 90D.

Hollyland Mars X Reviews

Works great!

I was using this to push video to my team in the immediate area for viewing. The device is easy to use and easy to set up. Very happy with the low latency and the ease of use. The internal battery that lasts about 30 minutes is great. Most of the time I don't even have to plug it in and it can stand alone.

The video has poor quality and muddy

I think Hollyland has good products and the quality of the hardware is good. However I am having issues getting the Mars X to display HD quality (1080p) on the IPad's Hollyland App. The quality is like a 480p and the picture is muddy, making it hard to even see the focus peaking feature it has. I emailed their support folks but they have not answered. I'm still waiting and will give it a few more days. If they don't have a solution, then this product is worthless and will have to look for an alternate option.

Transmit 1080p video to iPad

I bought this so I could send a wireless signal to my iPad Pro to have as a director's monitor. This device runs solidly for me. Sometimes picking up the Wifi signal of the Mars X on the iPad can take a couple of minutes to show up in your iOS Wifi list. Once the signal is made this thing is solid. I have had it on for 8-10 hr shoots and it kept the signal the whole time. The latency is very low. The range is fantastic too. I would say somewhere around 10 frames or so. I would not use it for focus pulling with the iPad as the image is a little soft since it is only 1080p resolution. There is no video out cable connection only wifi so this is really only good for tablets or phones. It does have a battery built into the unit that gives you about an hour of usage. I connect this to my V-mount battery which has a USB connection for charging, so power is not an issue for me.

Battery life too short, soft image with little detail..

By Matias

The worst thing is the image quality, it's not even close to be 1080p, it looks more like 480p. I've checked with different devices and cameras. Although the app is the same as the one in the other hollyland products, the image feed from the MARS 400S for example is waaay more detailed and sharp, this one is soft and muddy. The battery life has no sense, because you need to have it plugged to power the whole time. For the price, the DJI Raven Eye is now a way better option. And if you want something even cheaper, the Inkee Benbox has a beautiful crisp and detailed image, with better battery life, no antennas y nicer mounting options. The app of the Benbox it's too basic, but the image in WAY better. There are better options out there.

Unreliable - Too Many Failures To Bring To A Shoot

I wanted to love this product. It would have been so cool to have many people just connect and see what I see. Sadly though, this product is a total fail. Transmission is scratchy, weak, fails often. Battery life is weak and connecting is actually a PAIN! It should be simple - wifi, connect, done. Nope, it constantly falls off no matter what the situation. Every time I've brought this on a shoot, it fails, and I fall back to my tried and true regular monitors. Worse yet is the app, which has 1 star for a reason in the app store. It's confusing for no reason, fails and drops off for no reason. Hollyland is a failed company. I'll never buy a product from this brand again.

Unreliable video source detection . And the app is buggy.

By Richard

Pros: 1. A solid built and materials 2. Low latency Cons: 1. Unreliable detection of the video source. Flushing camera icon on the display all the time. I have to unplug the hdmi or reboot so many time to get it to detect the video source. Can’t count on it for a real job. 2. The OLED display only shows 1080p60, not the exact the frame rate I am shooting on the camera 3. Even when it works, it doesn’t seem to output a 1080p resolution. More like 480p to me. Can’t relay its video output on my iPhone X max screen to determine my focus 4. Only run about 45 min 5. Overheating 6. No custom load LUTs capability 7. Tech support?

Cool device - image quality leaves me wanting

By Christopher
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2021-07-08

Really nice piece of hardware, very cool functionality - the resolution and compression on the monitor video is a bit disappointing. You have to really pay attention to the entire image if you're wanting to use this as a monitor to help you focus your image, the compression can kind of make it hard to tell how sharp your subject is. Hopefully with software updates this can get better over time.
