Typically, IDX sticks to making battery systems and portable chargers, but recently, it decided to broaden its portfolio with the CAM-WAVE HD. Essentially, this device is meant to piggyback on cameras (think news crews, sporting events, etc.) and can transmit uncompressed HD signals up to 150-feet (line-of-sight) / 100-feet (through walls). What separates this man from the boys is its ability to beam out full-bandwidth uncompressed HD-SDI and SD-SDI images over short distances with practically no latency, as there's no internal compression slowing things down. Also of note, it's designed to operate in the 5.1 - 5.8GHz frequencies (meaning no unique FCC license is required) and it'll even send those high-def transmissions with encryption to keep snoopers at bay. 'Course, such a swank setup demands a stiff premium, and you'll be looking at a $6,000 bill should you pick up the system in Q3.
