Wireless Video System



  • What is your favourite solution for wireless HD Video streaming from stage to system.

    Especially if you have to cover a big indoor space and a big sized stage (up to 28m stage and ca. 100m around wireless base).
    The Camera needs to be small like a GoPro and most times mounted to the artists chest (need to survive artistic movements and dance).

    Does anyone have experience with mobile phone streaming and does now some software/ App that could work for this?

    Thanks

    I am mainly using the tlrermote app from http://techlife.sg/TCPSyphon/, but it could be risky relying on wifi signal in a show.

  • Thanks @Michel,

    we usually use wireless SDI/HDMI Broadcast devices. But even those weren't always reliable. But since I saw a couple of shows where people on stage ran around with even two or more mobile phone streams without issues I was curious about the possibilities.

    Besides the tech, I am interested how you are going to mount the device. There are a couple of designs I have developed and tried for iPods including an aluminium exoskeleton ribcage that delivered the front facing camera data (UDP Isadora plugin software on github) and a wrist mounting system delivering gyro and accelerometer or front/back camera. How do you imagine integrating the device into costumes etc? In these shows the performers moved (danced) around a lot including some floor work but there was no rolling. To tell you the truth I got a nasty kickback from peers telling me they are sick of seeing these devices in stage/art projects, and that was back in 2013! After feedback like that I am really trying to transcend the technology.


    cheers

  • I have use various models of terradek bolts and they are pretty flawless. For mounting on a costume it would be tricky but a few back pockets and a cable in th clothes could solve this easily.



  • I've been using the terradek bolts as well. They're good.

  • Very happy of my Teradek Bolts too.

    I've been touring two years ( more than 100 performnces ), with three of them on stage ( 3 different video feeds), no problem.
