New! Connex HD Video Downlink

HD Video Transmission up to 3300ft

Splash

Zero Latency Wireless HD Video

Amimon is bringing a new HD Video Transmission System to drone pilots and video professionals this month. The Connex HD Video Downlink is available for pre-order right now at GetFPV and will cost $1599. That price may seem high for hobby use, but for the growing number of commercial businesses starting up, its a great deal. The Connex is perfect for pro level aerial video and photo systems that will provide a much higher quality video feed than standard SD transmissions. With a range of 3300 ft, it is suitable for a great number of uses.

The video feed transmits on the 5Ghz band at up to 1080P and 60fps and with zero discernible latency. The feed is encrypted and also includes an OSD. The video transmitter weighs just 130g and the size allows it to be used on smaller quads if desired. Learn more about the Connex HD Video Downlink at GetFPV.

I can tell you from first hand experience, flying with this system is awesome. I felt like I was watching back HD footage from the GoPro post flight, but it was all live... I'm thinking HD FPV will soon be standard.

That's a lot of money. especially for any one who has three small children...

Nice range, good specs, woah price...

I just splurged and bought an F550 with tax return and I thought that was expensive...

Actually you might be surprised to know that there are many, many companies that make wireless HD video transmitters. In the film industry they are used all the time to relay from camera to film farm.
Usually the quality of picture and frame rate is insane, it's the range that suffers. I bet with "our" antennas one could expect double, if not triple the LOS range on any of these systems.

3300' is crazy good but Ide really like to see it

Many float around the same price range. There are tons available, this may just be the first truly focused on the FPV community though.

One I've seen in person that's nutts is the pro2k Good for 1500' or so.

All offer zero or <1ms Latency. The go pro has a HUGE latency. That's what you are seeing in the videos above.

Ya I read an article about how they are used in film and it's pretty impressive to say the least. I had no idea prior to reading about it.

I was more so meaning ones marketed towards general fpv/rc othe then AP. I know there's a couple up in coming ones that look interesting. Once they can get the size down of the transmitter at least I think it will take off. Heck I'd sacrifice some range for form factor. Reguardless it will be interesting to see where it goes. Thanks for the linke, looking forward to the read

i use a bolt at work, it's amazing.

this connex looks extremely similiar and cheaper by a factor of 10. We're getting there,this is a good step in the right direction to making this stuff cheaper.

If it was half the price I could justify it. BTW imagine "losing" your MR with this onboard...you're talking at least $2000 in equipment.
