Philips Wireless HDMI for Live Uncompressed Capture

The Philips wireless HDMI will be available soon for under $300 supporting up to 1080p uncompressed with a range of 25 feet. In a photo of it's packaging, it appears very small. I'll be waiting for that and for when an expresscard HDMI capture card finally comes out for laptops.

Beyond interesting, this is "the" true revolution. At least, the second part.

yeah, but the wireless is only good for 25 feet. might as well be wired at that distance.

100 feet? when that happens, you're beginning to make it look feasible.

Wireless capture to a PC would be great for any in-studio shots requiring camera mobility, like action shots... but like I said, the real benefit would be when an expresscard HDMI capture card comes out, like from a company like Blackmagic. That way you could use a portable laptop with professional video codecs and final cut pro. That would provide a more portable and versatile capture system than large professional on-location systems costing well beyond $5,000, and those are not even wireless. With an expresscard HDMI capture card and wireless HDMI it would cost under $600 for anyone that already has a laptop with an expresscard slot, and it would utilize the full resolution of the HV20 CMOS sensor rather than down-converting it to the degraded HDV spec, without the HDV motion issues, and with 4:2:2 colorspace rather than 4:2:0, and hopefully it would allow true 1080p capture of the native progressive CMOS sensor without the HV20 converting it to 1080i for HDV, but I'm not sure on that. We already know it would at least provide true 1080p @ 24 fps without requiring pull-down. As an added plus, the laptop screen could be used as a portable external monitor for filming assistance like focus, etc. You could also have the perfect little run & gun camera wirelessly capturing to a laptop in a backpack... that is if a program like Final Cut Pro could be upgraded to include a remote start/stop switch with a USB or serial port, they've listened to input from users before. I suppose a nice setup without the wireless HDMI would be a tiny laptop with an HDMI capture expresscard and with a flip screen for use as a mounted monitor. So many ideas, but at least the future of affordable high quality HD video is more exciting than ever before.
