Why Wireless Video Transmitters Go Unstable & How to Solve It

What Causes Bad Wireless Video Transmitter Signals?

You’re doing a live stream on your studio, filming under the cold weather, or monitoring in your car for your crew to get ready for shooting. You’re watching on your monitor, but your wireless video transmitter suddenly drops off or your monitor image disappears.

Poor signal again? You’re not alone. Most wireless video transmitter users occasionally drop images and suffer from slow transmitter speeds. The question is, why are you always getting weak signals and low bars?

Heavy Cellular Traffic

Take a look at all the other crew members sitting or walking around, or all those other people flocking together in a crowded space. Chances are, most if not all people are doing the same thing: texting or surfing online.

All those signals are fighting for space on the nearest signal tower. Once your wireless transmitter has linked to a tower, you are unlikely to lose your signal, but the more phones, laptops, or shooting equipment that fight for a spot, the weaker your signal can become.

If your wireless video transmitter is transferred to a tower that’s already full, your shooting image could disappear on your monitor.

Building Material

The building material of your shooting studio, a film set, or place of work is the culprit for weaker signals in most cases. 

If you routinely notice service fading in and out as you walk through your shooting studio, or your signal improves when you stand near a window or door, it’s likely your signal is being blocked by construction material.

Weather, Hills, and Valleys Affect

Geographic features are a common reason for wireless video transmission signal obstruction. If you shooting on the side of a mountain, lake, or forest area, and the only signal tower in your area is far away,  you’re not likely to get good reception, which will cause transmission images to drop off or disappear.

Shooting outdoors presents several technical challenges for photographers. You will have less control when shooting in bad weather, such as wind, rain, snow, etc which has a certain impact on the signal transmission of wireless video transmitters. Shooting outdoors exposes you to a wide range of subjects and possibilities. To take advantage of these possibilities, you need to be well prepared. 

How Can I Avoid Transmission Image Drop-Off

Accsoon Dual-Band technology, which allows it to stream video via 2.4GHz and 5.8GHz Wi-Fi at the same time from the transmitter. The receiver can intelligently identify interference and combine the two streams to form the complete audio and video stream, whether in crowded places, under terrible weather, or in tough geographic. The Dual-Band feature can greatly improve its stability and anti-interference capabilities.

It works by identifying what data is lost from the 2.4GHz (for redundancy video stream) and 5GHz (for main video stream) network transmissions separately, combining them, and then restoring the original shooting intention on your monitor. 

Here is the versatile wireless video transmission system feature with Dual-Band for keeping your transform video and audio stable and safe.

CineView-SE

CineView SE

  • High-reliability dual-band transmission
  • Transmission range up to 1200feet/350m
  • Very low latency (<0.6s)
  • Support SDI in and HDMI in
  • High-quality video and audio transmission
  • Connect up to 4 receivers and mobile devices (mix and match)
  • Support camera control
  • Professional monitoring APP for iOS and Android
  • Support DC and NPF battery power supply
  • Firmware upgradeable

The CineView SE also features automatic channel selection. There are 20 channels to choose and the transmitter will automatically scan the area and find the least congested channel to transmit. Both transmitter and receiver also have four large antennas for a more robust connection.

“The dual-band system should cover you range-wise for most applications without issue, and as long as you’re not storing your clients or crew half a kilometer away from the receivers or in the sub-basement, you should be fine.” – Gerald Undone.

If you always shooting in a weak signal area, or have a complex studio space where you want to keep the signal stable, but don’t need an SDI port, consider the CineView HE.

CineView-HE

CineView HE

  • High-reliability dual-band transmission
  • Transmission range up to 1200feet/350m
  • Very low latency (<0.6s)
  • Support HDMI in and HDMI loop out
  • High-quality video and audio transmission
  • Connect up to 4 receivers and mobile devices (mix and match)
  • Support camera control
  • Professional monitoring APP for iOS and Android
  • Support DC and NPF battery power supply
  • Firmware upgradeable

There are already several tests of CineView SE and CineView HE online with influencers walking across fields, through train tunnels, down hallways, and one video where they tested it walking down the street in Tokyo-one, one of the most Wi-Fi congested places on the planet. CineView HE and CineView SE got stable transmission images under the dual-band system. 

Accsoon is one of the most popular wireless video transmission system companies. With Dual-Band technology, CineView HE and CineView SE can keep transmission stability for any weak signal under the dual-band system.

We seriously hate weak signals, external interference, and transmission image drop-off, so our goal is to stomp out the spotty signals and ensure you stay stable whenever you shoot.
