Introduction to the StarlightRF

Transvideo has launched StarliteRF-a following on from the success of the StarliteHD-5 ARRI monitor which interfaces to and controls the ARRI Alexa-Mini and Amira cameras.

The StarliteRF-a is a variation of Transvideo's 5'' OLED wireless monitor-recorder. The kit consists of a StarliteRF-a monitor and a TitanHD2 Tx-a that connects to the EXT socket of the cameras via a custom cable provided in the kit.

Small and lightweight, it operates on the 5.8Ghz ISM band, has a top mounted antenna, and a Sony prosumer battery connection at the back. The wireless video connectivity incorporated is without latency, with low loss and without any transmission delay. Range is up 200m line-of-site. Free of cables and lightweight it is the perfect choice for directors, assistant directors, focus pullers and DOPs. The Starlight can also record dailies in h.264 onto an SD card,

Transvideo will demonstrate this new product on its Transvideo-Aaton Digital stand during the AFC Micro Salon in Paris, 27th and 28th January, and then soon after that on the 3rd and 4th February on its joint Transvideo-Aaton Digital stand #300 at the BSC Expo 2017 at Battersea Evolution, Battersea Park, London.
