Vaxis Cine8 Wireless Monitor
Vaxis has announced the Cine8 Wireless Monitor. The Cine8 is a 2560 x 1600 resolution, 1500nit touchscreen monitor with an integrated Vaxis wireless RX unit.
The concept is very similar to the SmallHD 7″ Cine 7 On-Camera Monitor Kit with Bolt 4K Receiver and SmallHD Cine 7 500 SK RX Monitor. What Vaxis set out to do was to make a monitor that that features an in-built wireless video RX unit.
Please note that the unit I was testing out was a pre-production version. Some of the functionality was not activated on this model and since that time Vaxis has also made some small changes to the design. This article is more of an overview and not a review.
The whole philosophy behind the Cine8 is simplicity. By integrating everything you need into one compact solution you take away some of the pains of traditional wireless monitoring. You only need to power one device, don’t need to mount one product to another and you don’t need to run any cables. By keeping things simple, it allows filmmakers to spend more time actually creating, instead of worrying about equipment.
This is something SmallHD and Teradek have been doing for quite a long time and we are now also starting to see ‘budget’ options appearing from a range of other manufacturers,
