If you're looking to add a Director's monitor feed to your workflow, Camera Motion Research is offering a nice sale on their complete RTR Wireless Director's Monitor Bundle. This CMR Bundle includes a 7" MustHD LCD Monitor, Monitor yoke, RM12 Wireless Video Set with 2 receivers, and the Backbones for the Radian Wireless HD Video Transmitters and Receivers. With this kit, you'll be able to stream the video feed from your camera's HDMI output to a remote LCD Monitor up to 300ft (LOS) away.

Having a director's monitor available on set is one of the best tools to have when working with anyone that needs to view the videos being shot from your camera so that they can offer creative input, or at times this tool is used for someone pulling focus remotely (especially when your camera is mounted to a gimbal). You can also use this when mounting your camera at the end of a long JIB / Crane, or when you have a remote camera that needs to stream video back to a Live Switch. Tons of useful reasons to have a Wireless Video Streaming kit on hand.

The Connex Accessory Pack by Camera Motion Research is a custom kit designed to make using your Amimon Connex simple to use for video use. Normally over $300 for this kit, they are currently offering a 25% discount on this accessory pack (found here).

The kit includes a Battery Cage and Antenna Support for the Air Unit (TX), a Battery Cage for the Ground Unit (RX), Power Cables, Shoe Mount adapter with thumbscrews, thin 19 inch Flexible HDMI (A) to mini HDMI (C), two 12V rechargeable Lithium batteries, two AC battery chargers, and spare mounting screws. This kit is an add-on that modifies the Connex so that the TX and RX can be powered with their own portable battery along with simple mounting options to use with camera and remote monitor.

The Connex is an extremely reliable full 1080 HD Video transmitter that can achieve 1080p up to 60fps over 1000 Meters away. The omni-directional broadcast means that it is not as sensitive to direct line of sight as other kits, and we've even used the system through obstacles (several walls) without a hiccup. If you're not familiar with this system, I have a product overview of the Connex (here).

In the video below you'll see an example of @SatoStudios using the Connex with CMR Accessory Pack during a music video shoot streaming to an OSEE Monitor. The shot required the gimbal operator (Scotty) to walk backwards up a curved flight of stairs, continue down a long hallway, into a bedroom. With the Connex attached to a DJI Ronin-M gimbal, the operator was free to focus on walking (making sure he doesn't trip up or fall) while Mike Sato remotely controlled Pan and Tilt camera movements using an optional DJI Ronin-M Wireless Thumb Controller from a distance.
