$1599 Zero-Latency System Operates at 5 GHz with a Range of Up to One Km

Wireless video specialist Amimon has released Connex, a new HD video transmission system designed specifically for drone flights. Amimon claims the system, which starts at $1599, offers zero-latency full-HD (up to 1080/60p) video transmission, with the option to multicast to up to four receivers, at a line-of-sight range of up to one kilometer (3300 feet).

Connex uses a 5 GHz transmission frequency to avoid interference from UAV control systems and other transmissions at 2.4 GHz. A built-in OSD view displays MAVLink-based telemetry and sends gimbal control commands via Futaba S.Bus.

The aur unit itself weighs 130 grams and has Mini-HDMI input. Video is protected during transmission with AES-128 encryption and RSA-1024 key exchange.

Amimon's NAB exhibit is in the Central Hall booth #C9149. The Connex will be demonstrated at the Aerial Robotics and Drone Pavilion at booth SU12702 in the South Hall at NAB. Flying-cage presentations will take place on Tuesday, April 14, at 1:45 p.m. (with IntelligentUAS) and on Thursday, April 16, from 11:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. (with Aerialtronics).
