Attention: RC-CAM.com will be closing down August 2021.

The RC-Cam.com forum was the very first online community dedicated to the advancement of wireless video cameras on radio controlled (R/C) models. This is now called "FPV" (First Person View). We are proud of the contributions that our members have made to the FPV hobby.

We've seen significant changes over the last twenty years. Initially there were a lot of eager R/C hobbyist that built their own video systems. Allowing these creative individuals to share their work was the purpose of this site. Now the FPV market is flooded with low cost systems; Sadly DiY FPV video projects are now rarely discussed.

RC-CAM.com (main site and forum) will be closing down August 2021. This was announced several months ago (March 2021) to allow our members ample time to download any information that is important to them. After the site is shutdown the information will no longer be available here.

We appreciate every member's involvement with advancing the FPV hobby. It is indeed sad to say goodbye to all our online friends. Be safe and stay healthy.



Wireless video at a sports match


Recommended Posts

Hi!

I need help with a configuration I'm working on:

I am filming a sports match on a video tower. I have a Sony camcorder with digital and analog outputs. I use the digital output to capture into my MacBook. I also need to transmit the video signal to the dug-out, some 70 metres away, where the signal also needs to be captured for immediate viewing by the coach.

To set this up, my preference goes out to an analog A/V transmitter which I can connect to my camera, and a receiver which connects to the laptop in the dug-out.

Finding a suitable A/V transmitter is not so much the problem, finding the right receiver is. I am not so sure as to how to connect the receiver to the laptop, i.e. how to bring in the signal.

Could you please help me to select the right equipment for this configuration?

Any help is much appreciated!

Thanks,

Frank

Hi,

The receiver will have an AV output, so to connect it to the laptop you'd need a video capture/TV card that has a composite input. You should find some in USB, PCMCIA and ExpressCard formats in pretty much any computer store.
