Wireless Video Receiver WVR‑1s

A rugged, small receiver with robust interfaces 


A smaller, lighter-weight counterpart to ARRI’s WVR‑1, the WVR‑1s can be quickly paired with the ARRI WVS transmitter and has an operational range of up to 150 meters/500 feet. It is easy to incorporate into a battery-powered hand-held viewing set-up.


  • Small and lightweight
  • Reliable transmission
  • Simple and fast pairing
  • Spray and dust-proof aluminum housing with protective collars for connectors
  • Robust mechanical and electrical interfaces
  • Large temperature range
  • Bespoke battery adapters for V Mount, Gold Mount, Bebob VMICRO or AMICRO
  • Power output to power receiver and monitor from one battery
  • Legal with local certifications


Building a compact focus unit for handheld or stationary use is especially easy with the WVR‑1s. With its integrated 12V power output and an optional V-Mount plate, it collaborates perfectly with any small monitor and the WCU‑4.

We are using the built-in transmitter in the ALEXA LF and found the wireless video system to be great. Personally I found the receiver was a bit big and heavy when mounted onto my WCU‑4, but ARRI were kind enough to give me a prototype of the new, smaller WVR‑1s receiver, which worked brilliantly and made the WCU‑4/monitor/receiver setup much lighter.
