Vaxis Introduces the Storm 500+ and 1000+ Zero-Delay Wireless Video Systems

These wireless transmitters from Vaxis give you 500-ft and 1000-ft of range without all the bulk.

Vaxis showed off several of its zero-delay wireless video systems at NAB. The Storm 500+ is a wireless video transmitter that boasts a 500' range, no compression, time code, built-in HDMI-SDI converter, and a brand new OLED screen. Its big brother, the Storm 1000+ Mini, gives you all of the features of the 500+ but with double the range. It's also designed to be smaller and more lightweight.

The company also displayed its integrated monitor and receiver, which will be released later this month for $2599. (If you pre-order, you'll get a free transmitter in the deal.) As of right now, Vaxis doesn't have North American distribution yet, but soon they will be offering its products through B&H, so stay tuned.

This things don't meet FCC compliance. and technically are illegal to use in the US. The odds of you getting in trouble to use one - slim to non. The odds of it interfering with other things on the 5 GHz spectrum very high. Yet another advantage to Paralinx and Teradek products.

100% true re: FCC. I spoke directly with Amimom, the manufacturer of the boards for all the wireless gear in the industry, at NAB about it. Only Teradek, Arri, and Swit feature not only FCC-compliance, but their latest boards. Everything else is 3+ year old tech being "boosted" after-market. It's a $10,000 fine, and while owner operators very likely won't get hit, a rental house might. Stick with Teradek.

All this NAB coverage is too too much. Please move it to its own section.

Another cheap Chinese knock-off. If we keep buying the cheap knock-off and the company they knock off goes out of business, who will innovate?
