NAB 2011: IDX Supplies Lithium Ion Batteries, Wireless Transmission
IDX lithium ion batteries have powered sports production for three decades. Operators worldwide continue to use IDX’s high-load E-HL9 series V-Mount (10 A in-rush at 120 W) lithium batteries with PowerLink technology for outstanding runtimes. With superior cell technology and longer overall life cycle, they deliver power down to -4° F at a reasonable $550 MSRP.
The company’s CW-5HD Cam-Wave HD wireless transmission system connects HD video cameras to monitors or recording devices. The cable-free system captures the game in uncompressed HD or SD-SDI with virtually no latency. It is priced at under $6,000 for the transmitter and receiver modules. For near-distance confidence monitoring, the CW-5HD can be used one-to-one or in multicast mode with a single transmitter and unlimited receivers. The CW-5HD has expanded from use in video/film production to sports applications, such as U.S. swim trials, professional hockey, college football, and more.
