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?
I am mainly using the tlrermote app from http://techlife.sg/TCPSyphon/, but it could be risky relying on wifi signal in a show.
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.
- is this something that could be interesting https://community.troikatronix.com/topic/3335/newtek-ndi-video-over-ip/2

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.
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.
