Wireless Video System

Monitoring camera output within local transmission regulation

The ARRI Wireless Video System (WVS) consists of integrated HD video transmitter in ALEXA LF and ALEXA SXT W cameras, a stand-alone video transmitter for use with ARRI cameras or third-party cameras, and a stand-alone video receiver that picks up signals from either transmitter. 

An extensive accessory range includes various mounting brackets, antenna extensions and the handheld Director’s Monitor Support (DMS-1), as well as a specially adapted Transvideo monitor with a built-in receiver for the ARRI transmitters. Whether using this monitor or others, the modular system allows for a compact and efficient setup. An extra power-out on the video receiver, for example, permits a single on-board battery to power both the receiver and an attached handheld monitor. A higher input voltage range allows more flexibility on battery choice. 


The ARRI Wireless Video System was rock solid. As the camera skated around, hundreds of feet away, even with all the obstructions from people, cars and trams in the centre of the city, we had no troubles.  Perfect to pull focus on, even if you’re nowhere near the action.

The wireless video signal is the best I’ve come across. It’s almost as good as the recording quality, it’s absolutely beautiful. There’s no noise, you see everything just like as if the cable were hard-wired directly from the camera to the monitor.

The ARRI Wireless Receivers are simple and easy to use with phenomenal signal range and have the added bonus of a V Mount plate and two SDI outputs. They are robust, versatile and better than any other option when paired with an ARRI camera.

Sample Setups

Between the camera, stand-alone transmitter, receiver, Starlite ARRI‑WVS monitor and extensive range of accessories, any set can be made more efficient with the ARRI Wireless Video System. Up to four receivers (either WVR‑1, WVR‑1s or Starlite ARRI‑WVS) can be used per transmitter and four to six transmitter/receiver groups can be used on the same set.

Here is a sample setup with four cameras:
