Cables are always a hindrance when you’re filming or recording whether you’re on a set, at your headquarters, in a church, or outside. You can leave the cables behind by investing in wireless networking. We offer VidOlink Reacher II, a high-performance wireless system that supports video resolutions up to 1080p60 and zero latency in line-of-sight transmission. With this wireless technology, you can get the benefits of leaving cables behind without worrying about a loss of quality. Here are five ways that wireless transmission can make your filming or recording better.
1. Better Mobility
We’re not just talking about your equipment. Wireless networks allow executives, directors and more to go further while still remaining in the network. You can watch filming from further and move where you’ve set yourselves up. Move around, enjoy the mobility, and keep watching with ultra-low latency. Regardless of your industry, this level of mobility is very useful and can help you ensure that you’re comfortable while filming or recording. You don’t need to worry about signal loss, latency, interference, noise and security issues when using this system, no matter where you want to use it.
2. Faster Set-Up
Keeping to your timeline can be challenging for any production, whether you’re simply making time to record the choir or you’re creating a feature film. Cutting down on set-up time is an important way to keep your schedule. Our wireless networking can help by eliminating the need to run cables. That is skipping a great deal of set-up time and making your set or location overall more flexible and functional, as other systems don’t need to take into account a mess of cables.
Plus, our systems avoid some of the pitfalls of setting up other wireless technologies. The transmitters and receivers that we use automatically detect each other and connect, saving you even more setup time and making using the system very simple.
3. Extend Your Network
We offer long-distance wireless transmission with our system, which means you can extend your network where you need to. This allows you film or record in areas which are not accessible for wiring and cables. No matter your industry, it is very useful to get into cramped, small, inaccessible or odd spaces for filming and recording. Overcome your limits when recording by freeing your equipment from the restrictions from cables.
4. Flexibility for Change
Things are changing all of the time. When you need to make changes and you’re working with a traditional cabled system, there is a whole mess of cable you need to work with, whether you’re trying to integrate more equipment or take some away. Wireless technologies are, in general, much more flexible when things change and wireless networking is no exception.
If you’re not sure how your networking needs to change, you can reach out to the team at VidOvation. We offer custom solutions, even those that can integrate with the existing solutions that you rely on already. Now that’s extreme flexibility that can save you from uprooting your old systems or spending time replacing everything that you already have just to gain some functionality.
5. Better Scalability
Hopefully, your organization will grow. Your needs will keep changing. You’ll want to record or film more, or you’ll need to add new buildings and new lines to your wireless network. Luckily, when you have a wireless network, it is very simple to scale up your operation as you grow as a business. Wireless networks don’t require that you add new cables when you grow, and you don’t have to worry about how the old and new elements of the system will interact with each other.
