The Hollyland Mars X wireless HDMI video transmitter, with its compact design and collapsible antennas, allows an HDMI signal to be transmitted to up to three iOS/Android mobile devices. This capability allows multiple people to monitor the image simultaneously from different locations in the studio or on set. The Mars X supports HDMI input resolution up to 1080p60, which is capable of wirelessly transmitting up to 90 metres line-of-sight. With only 70ms latency, transmission delay is very low. A sync function ensures that audio and video arrive at the same time to linked mobile devices.
The Mars X is powered by an integrated battery, which contributes to its self-contained and portable design. The battery runs continuously for up to one hour and is rechargeable via a USB Type-C port in approximately 2.5 hours. Other features include an OLED display that shows battery status, frequency channel used, transmitted video format and Wi-Fi network password. In addition, the transmitter's design has rounded, aluminium corners that allow it to better withstand accidental bumps.
The Mars X offers eight frequency channels, to try to avoid interference problems in areas congested by transmissions. The transmitted image can be viewed on a mobile device using the HollyView app designed for both iOS and Android. The app also offers monitoring functions such as zebra, waveform, false colour, etc. To help pinpoint interference, the app also has a channel scan function to detect interference and select the best of the eight possible transmission channels.
The video transmitter has two 1/4"-20 mounting threads (one on the bottom and one on the back), and comes with a 1/4"-20 hot shoe adapter so it can be attached to a camera, camera cage or support accessory.
