A First Look: Paralinx Arrow & Arrow Plus
Paralinx is staking its claim in the wireless HD transmitter market with the introduction of the Arrow and Arrow-Plus. The Paralinx Arrow is a HD wireless bridge, capable of transferring fully uncompressed 4:2:2, 1920×1080, 10-bit video signal with less than 2 milliseconds of latency. It has a built-in Omni-directional antenna capable of transmitting signals up to 328feet/100meters line-of-sight range using a professional-grade baseband transmission chipset that works in the unlicensed 5.1 to 5.8 Ghz range, which incorporates a AES 128-bit encrypted signature. The Paralinx Arrow transmitter is about the size of a stick of gum, and weighs less than 40 grams making portability a non-issue. This is simply a plug and play HD transmitting interface without the need for additional set-up and devices.Paralinx has two options you can choose from specific to your needs. The first option available is the Arrow which allows for only 1:1 transmitter to receiver connection; but you can’t run multiple monitors on one transmitter with this option. The Arrow-Plus allows the same features and functionality as the Arrow, but adds the ability to utilize a 1:4 transmitter to receiver connection. This could be a beneficial option for those productions that are utilizing multiple locations, and require multiple video monitoring sources. Having the ability to monitor uncompressed HD video in 4 separate locations on one transmitter, and no need for extensive hard-wiring is tremendously convenient. Paralinx delivers an exceptionally valuable product that can ultimately save you the time, money and offer extreme flexibility during your next production.
