BELOW WIRELESS KITS REQUIRE A POSSIBLE FIRMWARE UPGRADE FOR THE HD HERO (not HD Hero2).
DO THAT UPGRADE BEFORE USING THESE KITS.

Everything below works with the new HD Hero2

Eye Of Mine is very excited to announce an HD wireless kit for the HD Hero2!!
No, not $2,500. We have a complete HD transmitter kit for $399!
This is full uncompressed 1080p.

HD Wireless kit 1080p uncompressed: Yes you read correctly. We now have an unbelieveable uncompressed 1080p wireless video system! This kit has a line-of-sight distance of 60 feet (30 feet through walls). In our testing, we are able to get 80 feet with absolutely crystal clear, glitch free uncompressed video/audio. Uses 5.1-5.9Ghz frequencies. It IS possible to daisy chain the kits for even longer range. This is because the receiver and transmitter are paired and thus locked to each other when transmitting/receiving. Could be run from a car accessory plug if you have a AC inverter (takes about 15 watts of power). This kit recognizes ALL HD Hero2 resolutions and frame rates. And is truly plug and play. You can be broadcasting within seconds after everything is plugged in. Of course this can be used with any other camera that has an HDMI plug. Maximum transmission power:12dBm (20mW). Note the remote control is not included in this kit. Does NOT work with the HD Hero, only Hero2

CONTAINS:

HD Transmitter. 7 oz Power connector is 3.4mm OD, 1.3mm ID
HD Receiver, 7 oz Power connector is 3.4mm OD, 1.3mm ID
Two AC power adapters
One standard HDMI cable 6 feet
RCA coupler
1 swivel HDMI to mini HDMI adapter

Transmitter and receiver are both: 6" x 4" x1"

=============================


We now have a 12v to 5V converter that allows you to run the transmitter/receiver from our 12V batteries. Requires two converters if you want DC power for both transmitter and receiver. Battery not included.

Tips & Tricks

Skeleton HD Hero housings are here

Possible uses for live video:

  • To show on the big screen LIVE at an event.
  • To analyze motorsports vehicle suspension travel and clearance issues LIVE.
  • To have the ability to view and record a live video feed for quick editing at a lower resolution.
  • For R/C vehicles, you can now drive by video. Vehicle no longer has to be in-sight.
  • To help setup an important shot, without having to shoot and review.
  • To know exactly when the camera is taking a still picture (good for timelapse mode).
  • For a professional production environment where live HD or standard video output is required.

    Once you are all setup, why not broadcast it LIVE to the internet. Ustream
    or LiveCast

Watch the video to see the live video in action:


If you are going to use this camera on a tripod or want to have access to the plugs, you may want to consider the Eye Of Mine tripod mount ($14) that connects the camera to a tripod or any other mount that has a 1/4-20 bolt without the underwater housing. The video out and USB plug are both accessible when in this tripod mount.
See main order page for this tripod mount.

None of the packages are designed for underwater use or should be used in a damp environment. Enclosing the electronics including the antennas in a plastic bag will not affect performance.


Here's a chart showing wireless frequencies in USA

WIRELESS LIVE VIDEO PACKAGES
All wireless packages are special order. Allow approx 2-3 weeks.





UPDATE:
We've testing on a race track and below is a test video. Wireless video systems simply do not like a lot of movement and definately don't like wire fences. It will work will for R/C planes, etc. or stationary transmission with no problem.

Now we know why Nascar uses a blimp/helicopter overhead and beams the video signal from an antenna OUTSIDE the vehicle. That keeps the signal at the same distance from the receiver and there very little 'perceived' movement from the receiver's perspective.

1: When the wireless antenna is inside the vehicle, the sheet metal body acts as a barrier to the signal and because there are windows, as the vehicle changes orientation, the signal will get stronger/weaker at the receiver end.

2: Changes in orientation, distance to the receiver affect the signal.

3: Vehicle electronics/ignition can affect the video signal.

4: Using the supplied omni directional antennas dilutes the range and increase the chance of interference. Ideally, a directional antenna should be pointed at the moving transmitter at all times to get the strongest signal.

We will investigate other systems or methods to reduce the issues above.

Nothing like seeing an actual wireless test. At Irwindale Speedway no less. We had wireless experts watch the video and their comments are in the video in red:

*The transmitter gets very warm to the touch. In fact the entire case is an aluminum heat sink. When mounting it, leave about a 1 inch gap around it so the heat can dissipate. Don't let it touch Styrofoam, balsa wood and anything else with a low melting point.

OPTIONAL ACCESSORIES for wired and wireless packages. The HD Hero prefers a non-widescreen SD monitor because it adds black bars at top and bottom when necessary. A wide-screen SD monitor will simply stretch them image keeping the black bars at top and bottom.

($69)
Add 16 foot flagpole: For use with our wireless video kits. With video, the higher the receiver
EFLG-16 the better the signal, and the height lessens interference from other electronics. Also gets
the receiver above fences, etc. This is a great, 7 lb lightweight anodized aluminum flagpole
in 4 sections that expands up to 16 feet. Has 1 quick latch at the top and another and the
bottom of the top section. You can easily attach the wireless receiver to the top clip (see picture).
Note the transmitter is NOT weatherproof. You could also keep the wireless receiver on the
ground and extend just the antenna to the top of the pole.

Note this comes with a separate metal tube that can be dug into the ground, but the pole
does not come with any kind of flat stand. You could try attaching to side of a housing (see pic)
or car or trailer.



Below are some Tips and tricks for wireless. We live in a world of wireless devices: Cell phones, cordless phones, wireless routers, beepers, wireless TV such as sling box, bluetooth, wireless internet cards...the list goes on...and any one of these has the potential to interfere with your wireless signal. So, before doing any kind of important event, TEST, TEST TEST.

Line of sight means literally just that. If anything is in the line of sight - a tree, house, wall, your range will be decreased.

The most important single thing for a good wireless signal is antenna placement, for both transmitter and receiver. The HIGHER THE BETTER with antennas. Try to get as close to line-of-sight as possible. Obviously that may not possible indoors, so keep the antenna high. For vehicles try to put the antenna high and outside, otherwise the metal of the vehicle is like a cocoon and will reduce the range depending on the angle of the transmitter to the receiver. Moving cameras will always be problematic in city environments.

Second most important is try to stay away from anything that is transmitting a signal. And secondarily, try to stay away from any power boxes, outlets, transformers, generators. On vehicles, stay away from ignition electronics, spark plugs, distributors, magnetos AND driver radios.

And the third item of importance is battery, battery, battery. When your battery starts to loose it's power, your wireless signal will suffer. And you won't even know why the signal is bad! Some symptoms of low power can be bad reception, wavy video, loss of color. So, don't be cheap, use a fresh battery (or freshly charged) before any important event. Happy transmitting!

Underwater: It is not possible to transmit radio waves underwater (that's why they use sonar). The only way to have wireless underwater would be to run the transmitter antenna (and video cable) to the surface of the water, which would defeat the purpose of a 'wireless camera'.
