Designed for electronic newsgathering, the RFX-CMT transforms a standard newsgathering camcorder into a digital wireless camera.
Producers of the Ironman Triathlon qualifier in Madison, WI, last month relied on the RF Central 5.8GHz RF Extreme Camera Mounted Transmitter (RFX-CMT) to give their cameraman the opportunity to get close to the action and to move around freely without the restriction of wires.
Designed for electronic newsgathering, the RFX-CMT transforms a standard news gathering camcorder into a digital wireless camera. The transmitter simply clips on to the battery adaptor plate. The device uses COFDM modulation and supports MPEG-2 4:2:0 and MPEG-2 4:2:2 encoding.
For the qualifying event, the RFX-CMT lets the cameraman move around the race transition areas without cables — so there are no safety concerns about interfering with contestants — and still deliver broadcast-quality images.
