New: NEBTEK microLite HD wireless monitoring

February 5th, 2013 • by Nina • in Blog, Camera, New Equipment

When it comes to HD wireless video monitoring, maintaining a strong signal strength over a long distance has been a tricky technical feat to overcome. The North American company NEBTEK has developed a versatile transmitter/receiver system that handles the HD signal without a hitch.

Here’s what makes it great:

The antennas which this system uses are optimized for high-gain and durability, offering a 1/2 mile range- that’s 2,640 feet! Perfect for mobile or long-range shots that require the camera in one vehicle with the director or focus puller in another.

Another major perk of the microLite HD is the seemingly limitless ergonomic mounting options. The transmitter can easily be secured to a camera via hot shoe or Noga arm. The receiver, which stays with the viewing monitor, has myriad ways in which it can be secured. An included Manfrotto Magic Arm and Super Clamp means you can safely secure the unit to the monitor stand, keeping everything tightly packed together for easy portability.

In our testing, we were able to take the transmitter secured to an Alexa up two stories from our basement camera department to our rental offices without a disturbance in the signal. In testing the portability, we mounted a TV Logic 5.6″ monitor to the back of the receiver, creating a small, lightweight mobile viewing monitor perfect for guerrilla style filmmaking.

The transmitter and noga arm only add 1lbs to the total camera weight, while the receiver (with Magic Arm attached) adds a mere 6lbs to the viewing monitor.

Everything you could ask for in the world of wireless HD monitoring is answered with the NEBTEK microLite HD. Now available to rent at Hand Held Films.
