Many prayers have been answered now that DJI released an independent receiver for the DJI transmission. The initial product was launched nearly a year ago, but up until now, it was only possible to receive the broadcasted video on their own monitor with a buit-in receiver.
Unfortunately, this made it a dealbreaker for larger productions where multiple receivers are needed.
With this newly released combo and posibility to buy seperate receivers, DJI has started to creep into the market that was dominated by Teradek and Vaxis. Coming in at a price of €2999 for the combo and €1299 for a receiver, they’re in direct competition with the Bolt LT 750 SDI by Teradek and the Vaxis Storm 1000s package.
Claiming a whopping 20.000ft of range at 40Mbps, this package will surely be sufficient for any highend production.
The fast channel switching so you can receive video from another camera is also a great feature. Where up untill a few years ago you needed either another set of TX-RX, now you’re able to use the same receiver to acces multiple video transmissions in seconds.
DJI also highlights the frequentie hopping of their video signals, which should result in a more stable connection.
I feel we’ll be seeing these DJI transmitters arriving on set fairly soon as they seem a solid choice for any type of production.
