Hollyland is a relatively new company making wireless video transmitter systems. The first question you might ask is, why would I need something like that? When you start working on productions with a budget and several crew members, directors often find it useful to have a wireless monitor. This allows them a bit more freedom to move up and work more intimately with the actors without giving up their view of the camera’s framing. The problem with these wireless systems is that they’re traditionally quite expensive, well over $1000 USD just for an entry level kit.
In this episode, we look at the Hollyland Mars 300 HDMI wireless video transmitter kit which transmits up to 300’ and runs less than $500 USD.
If you’d like to learn how to make great dialogue audio for your film and video projects, please have a look at my courses including processing dialogue audio in Adobe Audition and DaVinci Resolve/Fairlight, recording sound, how to use the Zoom F8 and F8n, and how to get the most from the Sound Devices MixPre series of recorders.
