  1. I don't have any personal experience, but don't see why it wouldn't work, with the USB over IP drivers it just shows up to the computer as any USB device. Gotham featured this box in a video https://www.gothamsound.com/library/gotham-labs-building-poe-production-audio-recording-rig They used a program called Wave Tool which sends remote commands to the wireless receivers, and since that works, I don't see why the native app wouldn't also work just fine. If you talk to Peter at Gotham, I'm sure he has more experience to share
  2. Gotham sells one https://www.gothamsound.com/product/gigabit-usb-device-server
  3. Sounds cool, but to circle it back to our conversation – do you have NDI support in your multiviewer?
  4. If you have a computer on your cart that can connect to an Ad-Hoc wifi network you could get the Kiloview N2 Wireless NDI device, with the Decimator quad you come in at around $800 for a 4 channel wireless link. Limited, of course, by your wifi range. https://www.adorama.com/kvkvn2.html The Kiloview uses NDI-HX which is a very inefficient h.264 encoding, upside – the stream is only 30Mbps, downside – it isn't compatible with most other NDI devices and therefor you need a computer to decode the signal. There is a new HX2 spec that is out that is similarly low bandwidth
  5. If you put an internet modem onto the same network the NDI signals are running then the internet is there – but you can't connect to more than 1 wifi network at the same time, and mixing a "Production" Network with NDI and Dante signals with an "Internet" network isn't a good idea
  6. an HD NDI stream is 125mbps, so yes. You could run it over a Wifi N or better connection – but it would need to be rock solid. You'd just be limited by your wifi range. The benefit of using the Ethernet adapter is you can run your NDI streams on the protected network and still use the Wifi to connect to an internet hotspot for internet between takes.
  7. NP-1 Battery dimensions: 7.3" x 2.8" x 1" Smart Battery dimensions: 5.9" x 3.0" x .89" The Smart batteries are wider than the NPs. I know of no warranty protecting hole stretchers – so you'll need to modify the case
  8. I found Tascam's offerings to be annoying to operate and in general didn't trust them. I would recommend a Sound Devices mixpre-3 or a Zoom F6. Those are the entry level devices for our work.
  9. If you're ok changing your cart monitor, and using a quad multiviewer - you can get there even cheaper. Get the birddog multiview Flex – which can take POE and spit out an extra 15w at 12v. https://www.bird-dog.tv/flex-overview/ Get the Decimator DMON-QUAD Multiviewer, with a short power jumper and short hdmi cable you can get 4 SDI inputs into a video stream – you'll need to pick a layout that works for the number of cameras but there are many options with the Decimator https://decimator.com/Products/MultiViewers/DMON-QUAD MultiViewer/DMON-QUAD.html
  10. It isn't an SMA, but a DIN 1.0/2.3 connector. In the connector you linked on ebay, it isn't a crimp for the center pin, but solder as you can see the solder cup in the product images, also why there is a big opening around it. You need to prep your center conductor to exactly reach with just enough jacket removed to fit into the cup
  11. Peter Schneider at Gotham Sound in NY would probably know the exact solution – he's made a handful of videos recently on remote comms.
  12. It's all software – Zaxcom should just release a Block 25 firmware update to set it to the operating range and 20mW output
  13. Sure, sure, not the arrows but the archer – but if you do anything more than an XLR cable once a year, you'll want at least a midrange iron that has variable temperature control, enough power to heat up quickly, and hold that temp so it doesn't get its heat sucked out by the work piece.
  14. 212mm for the 4017b vs. 179mm for the 8060 – that's a big difference. The Pianissimo was designed for the 4017b which is suitably larger than the XL Cosi for the larger mic
  15. 653-657 MHz: 4 MHz (exclusive to licensed operators) 657-663 MHz: 6 MHz (unlicensed and White Space Devices (WSD)) Power output is limited to 20 mW
