The prices and shipping options are an estimate based on the purchase of a single item with nothing else in your basket. The prices and options below do not include shipping regulations and duties which will be checked in the checkout process.
At CVP we always strive to get your order to you as quickly as possible, but in the interest of clarity please note that next day is defined as the next working day (ie: excluding weekends, UK bank holidays and public holidays).
Orders placed and security cleared* before 14:00GMT where all items are in stock will normally** be dispatched on the same business day for ultimate delivery according to the shipping method selected.
Where an item is not physically in stock, the actual delivery time will be extended by the lead time for the product in question. Shipping to the Channel Islands, Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and some remote UK postcodes are not next day but 2 working days.
All transactions are subject to CVP security checks which are for our mutual protection against identity theft and fraud. In the event that additional checks are required you will be informed and dispatch time will be extended by the time taken to resolve any queries raised. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
*Due to unforseen circumstances, on some occasions same day dispatch may not be possible. In this event we will always do our utmost to keep you fully informed of any delay imposed.
The new and improved CW-7, uncompressed wireless HD-SDI/SDSDI transmission system delivers superior image quality up to 300ft, while maintaining a zero frame delay. Perfect for outdoor or indoor productions and events, the CW-7 wirelessly transmits HD video and audio from a professional camera to a monitor. Event, television, and film productions can save time on prep by eliminating long cable runs from the camera to video village or display. Dynamic Frequency Selection allows CW-7 to operate on less crowded channels within the license exempt 5GHz spectrum.
Optional mounting installation for A/B 3-stud version is available for any or all sides of the transmitter and receiver modules. Factory-installed one-centimeter spacers for monitors or other source attachment to the CW-5HD TX or RX is also an option. Contact IDX Sales to confirm specific model compatibility before ordering.
Q: What is the maximum transmission distance?
A: Longer than the CW-5HD; we see greater than 80 metres line-of-sight outside the office in Langley, however, distance will vary depending on the surrounding environment.
Q: What is the latency?
A: Less than 1ms.
Q: What frequencies are used?
A: 5190, 5230, 5270, 5310, 5510, 5550, 5590, 5630, and 5670 MHz
Q: Can I manually select a channel/frequency?
A: Yes! A channel-select dial on the TX and RX allows you to select from 4 channels A,B,DFS Indoor and DFS outdoor
Q: What are the power outputs for each channel?
A: Max power is available across all 4 channels 20mW per antenna. Low power setting 5mW per antenna
Q: Does the power output affect the transmission distance?
A: Compared to the CW-5HD the higher power is used to give better picture quality and greater distance
Q: Can I transmit from one TX to multiple RX?
A: Yes! The multi-cast function allow you to transmit from one TX to an unlimited number of RXs. Note: Multi-cast does not work on DFS channels.
Q: Is CW-7 compatible with CW-5HD?
A: No. CW-7 and CW-5HD operate on different frequencies with different bandwidths
Q: Can I have multiple multi-cast systems in one area?
A: Yes! You can operate up to 2 TXs with multiple RXs in one area. Use the channel select dial on the RX to tune-in to a TX. Note: Multi-cast does not work on DFS channels.
Q: Can I send multiple signals to one RX?
A: Not simultaneously. The channel select dial on the RX allows you to tune in to a TX but it will take approximately 10 seconds to link on channels 1and 2. DFS channels may take approximately a minute to link
Q: What are the compatible formats and frame rates?
A: HD-SDI and SD-SDI 1080: 60i, 59.94i, 50i, 29.97p, 25p, 24p, 23.98p, 30PsF, 29.97PsF, 25PsF, 24PsF, 23.98PsF; 720: 59.94p, 50p; 625: 50i; 525: 59.94i
Q: Does the CW-7 transmit audio?
A: Yes! SDI imbedded audio (channels 1 & 2) will transmit in sync with the video
Q: Does the CW-7 transmit time code or meta data?
A: CW-7 currently does not support time code or meta data.
Q: What are the power requirements?
A: 11-17V DC via V-Mount battery, or 4pin XLR DC input
Q: Can you send camera control signals through CW-7?
A: CW-7 currently does not support camera control signals
Q. Can the CW-7 transmit through walls?
A. Yes! However, the signal has difficulty transmitting through metal and mortar walls.
