The Vaxis Storm is available in an integrated 5.5″ 1000nit Full 1920×1080 monitor (called the Storm 055) and it comes with a 500ft transmitter for $2500 USD. Currently Vaxis has a deal where they will upgrade the 500ft transmitter to the Storm 1000ft for the same price. You can also just buy the monitor with receiver for $1999 USD.

Comparatively, the newly announced SmallHD Focus Bolt RX that works with Teradek Bolt receivers is $1,299 but is only a 5″, 1280×720 800 Nit display. It is expected to ship on May 31.
