As well as wireless camera reception the system is also suited to many other applications including point to point links and helicopter downlinks with various high gain antenna and mounting options available all tailored to each specific hire. The system can be combined with triax or fibre extension systems with options for single mode and SMPTE available, further extending it’s power.

Due to this receivers use of external block downconverters, multiple sources can be received using the same antenna infrastructure allowing for simple and efficient rigging. This also provides support for various frequency bands including 2.5 GHz, 3.5 GHz and 7.2 GHz buy simply changing the downconverter type.
