The reviews were mixed but I took a chance with this wireless system and Im glad I did! The system worked perfectly! I didnt notice any lag or issues with it.

Needs a cage

Transmission was very good with very limited latency but the HDMI cable needs to be secured somehow (cage) to keep the cable stress from damaging the connector. Love the internal antenna!

Yikes.

I was so pumped to get this item in my hands. Unfortunately when I received them I used it for our church service and the receiver kept powering off and on, I returned the defective item. B&H was kind to send me a new one within two weeks I received the new device. Everything was fine until the transmitter was wasn't working. It wasn't powering on I had an NPF battery on it so I thought it was my battery. I switched out the battery for a fresh one and nothing it wasn't turning on. So I tried using the usbc to see if it would turn on and it wouldn't turn on. I don't know if I'm doing something wrong on my end but I believe I'm not. I love how it looks and how there's no antennas, that's why I was so drawn to this product. But sadly it did not work for us.

Misses the mark.

Pros: compact and light weight with optional onboard power via battery. App monitoring feature (when it works) Cons: no 1/4-20 mounting like the HDMI version. Instead you have to buy a piece of plastic with threads and a sticky back to get 1/4-20 mounting Latency is horrible. Range is terrible. Definitely not 500' LOS App reliability is not great on location

great product

I was so worried they would fail me coming from the Taredek world, but they deliver. The latency is very slightly slow, but its solid for the price point.

Easy to use and effective.

Wireless video quality is good to about 300 feet with a line of sight. It is easy to use and lightweight.
