Switronix Release Recon Wireless Transmission System

(Westbury, NY)—Switronix is pleased to announce their new Recon Wireless Transmission system. This low-cost, high-efficient product is able to transmit uncompressed, HD Video over 150 feet. The Recon Wireless is available in two forms, RECON-HDMI (HDMI input) and RECON-ULTRA (HDMI/HDSDi input).

With fully uncompressed, high definition images with embedded sound, the Recon Wireless exceeds all others on the market.

Designed from the ground up for wireless transmitting HD from any camera to field monitors, is ideal for live real-time viewing in professional quality, with a latency of less than 1 millisecond. The director, producer and even film crew can see exactly what the camera is shooting in real-time. The transmission is uncompressed for the highest quality and encrypted for safety.

The Recon Wireless can be supplied power in two different ways: by battery (V-type or 3-Stud battery**) or by DC input via XLR-4p connector. It was also designed with a back up power failure function. If the external power is disconnected, it will automatically switch to a connected battery. In case of interference with another RF system, it’s 5.1GHz~5.9GHz will automatically adjust frequencies on the fly.

Unlike other wireless transmission systems, the Recon Wireless has a built in HDMI to HD-SDI converter, as well as an external antenna for a more stable connection. It has fully uncompressed 1080 true cinema video with embedded sound and will automatically detect PAL or NTSC.

Also being released is the #RECV-RISE and #RECV-RISE-RED. The RECV-RISE is a V-mount to V-mount Riser used to elevate and tranmsit power to either of the V-Type Recon Wireless units (#RECV-HDMI or RECV-ULTRA). By elevating the Recon, it reduces the possibility of interference. The RECV-RISE-RED unit will be wired to support RED battery data transmission to the RED ONE/EPIC/SCARLET.

The Recon Wireless retails around $3,000 and can be available to purchase from any Switronix Authorized Dealer.
