I'm currently researching for an upcoming project in which I'll be using a wireless setup for the first time (transmitting from bag to camera). I've read a couple of similar posts on wireless setups and most people are recommending Zaxcom or Lectrosonics so I've already had a look at their products and will try to go with one of them. SD card backup recording on the Zaxcoms is a good safeguard against any pottential drop-outs.
The documentary is about a comedy festival in Morocco and we'll be following a French comedian (the main subject of the doc) during his time at the festival. We'll be doing quite a lot of filming out and about, hence the need of freedom between camera and soundman. I'll be mixing on an SD442 with a boom mic and wireless lavs, then wirelessly transmitting the mix to the camera.
My main questions are:
Do any of you guys have experience in this type of setup? Can you breakdown how you'd go about setting up?
Are there any obvious problems I could run into?
Is there any way to use one device that can both receive the signal from the lav and transmit the output from the mixer or will I need separate receivers and transmitters?
Thanks in advance.
