New Radian Pro Mini TX Backbone for Wireless HD Video Transmitter

If you're looking for a lightweight setup to send your HD feed wirelessly, Camera Motion Research has released a new Mini Back Bone for their Radian Pro Wireless HD Video Transmitter. The backbone itself is more compact in design, is now made from Delrin instead of metal, and also includes a lighter more compact battery. Aside from being used with the Radian transmitter, these backbones can be used with Paralinx, IDX-Cw-1, and Nyrius Aries Pro transmitters.

Product Description:
The mini TX Backbone requested by customers wanting the smallest and lightest transmitter package with self-contained power is now available. The mini TX Backbone is made from machined delrin , and our chrome plated spring steel battery clip. It has two ¼-20 mounting holes. The MINI TX Backbone uses a smaller lithium battery that powers the transmitter for over 3 hours. The battery has an on/off switch , and a very accurate digital display of remaining % power, that indicates both during powering, and during charging. The MINI TX BackBone kit ships with one battery, USB power cable, anodized aluminum thumb stud and hot shoe mount for an introductory price of $99. Additional batteries are $25 (visit website here).

    Hello Em,

    Will the regular sized Backbone work with the Nyrius Aries Pro transmitter? Asking because based on thr photos I've seen, the regular sized Backbone has some parts of it protruding out to protect the hdmi connection. Not sure if it will fit.

    Would appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

    @Kel - Yes this will work fine with the GH4, but you have to set the HDMI out to 1080p not 4K.

    Thanks Emm. I thought the Nyrius powered up from the camera's battery through the HDMI connector.

    @Miguel - You need a battery to power the Nyrius. You also need a way to mount the Nyrius to the camera. I guess you can use tie straps, velcro, or gaffers tape to mount the transmitter and battery, but the Delrin backbone is a cleaner and more efficient way of adding the transmitter.

    What's the purpose of this? Can't you just plug the Nyrius to the camera using a female HDMI to male micro-HDMI cable?

    @Jansen - Only the Delrin block is 99 dollars. The Radian wireless kit is totally seperate.

  7. Jansen

    Is $99.00 for both the transmitter and the receiver? Or do you have to buy each one separately?

  8. @liang – The Radian has very low latency, less than 2 milliseconds just like the Teradek Bolt. Its low latency makes the Radian perfect for live performance big screen projection, and for wireless follow focus applications, as shown in this review by Bob Gundu:

    @Jansen - Yes.
    You connect an HDMI cable from your camera to the transmitter and it will send the video to the receiver.
    The receiver will have an HDMI cable connected to a separate monitor for viewing.

    I'm a bit of a newbie to this, but do I just hook this up to my monitor and other part to my camera and I get wireless monitoring?

    I was looking at this product because the pricing is wonderful, and there's not a lot of other products, if any at all, at this price bracket for a system like this. It also looks great and compact. My only gripe is the latency of this system. I was also looking at the Teradek Bolt system, but it costs 3x more than the Radian. If CA Motion makes a latency free device at the same price bracket, I would have jumped on this, no questions asked. CA Motion! If you're reading this, DO IT! Be the company that gives the middle finger to all other companies! PLEASE! There is such a huge SLR/compact camera market out there screaming, "TAKE MY MONEY!"
