What is it?

Vaxis ATOM 500 SDI is an affordable, mini-sized SDI and HDMI wireless video set consisting of a receiver and transmitter with a built-in antenna.
Attach the sender (TX) to the SDI or HDMI output of your camera and attach the receiver (RX) to the SDI or HDMI input of your monitor.The transmitter can send up to 1080p 60fps HD video over a distance of 152m with 80 ms latency.
The video sent by the transmitter can be viewed in the traditional way by attaching the ATOM 500 SDI receiver to an HDMI or SDI monitor. In addition, the transmitter can send the video to an iPhone, iPad or an Android smartphone and tablet. With the ATOM app, users can view and record wireless video. In total, one transmitter can send video to four devices at the same time; one HDMI/SDI receiver and three smartphones or tablets.

The kit is ideal for mobile users who want to view wireless video with their smartphone or tablet in their hands. The free downloadable Vaxis ATOM 500 app allows wireless monitoring and image record and offers tools such as assisted focus, frame guides, grayscale, and more. 
The app is currently available for iOS only. An Android app will be released later in October.
