Vaxis new Wireless Video Units first look

Vaxis was showing a ton of new products at NAB. Since launching in 2015, Vaxis wireless units have become very popular and we have reviewed quite a few of the products on the site.

Storm 3000 I/O Wireless TX

The Storm 3000 I/O Wireless TX is a customized version of the Storm 3000 TX unit which mounts directly onto any RED DSMC2 brain. It is powered by a V-Lock battery which passes through power to the camera.

The nice thing about the Storm 3000 I/O Wireless TX is that it can still be used as a standalone wireless unit when not attached to a RED camera with the SDI in/out ports. It also has the removable Vaxis sword antennas.

Teradek has a similar product with the Bolt DSMC2 module. It is available in Bolt 500/1000/3000 variants and cannot be used standalone.

The Storm 3000 I/O Wireless TX will retail for $3400 USD.

New Antenna-Free Storm 1000s

A new Storm 1000s has also been announced with a new antenna-free design. The TX also features a built-in mounting bracket that uses a 3/8″ thread. The mockup does seem misaligned though.

Having no external antennas will mean less chance of them getting broken or in the way. The TX features an SDI in/out as well as a HDMI input. The RX has two SDI and one HDMI output. It has a maximum range of 350m.

The new Storm 1000 will retail for $2600 USD.
