Ranger Zero-Delay Wireless 4K Video for Live Production
Ranger is the world’s first zero-delay (< 1 ms) wireless video system to transmit uncompressed 4K HDR video up to 5,000 ft line of sight, with best-in-class performance in challenging RF conditions.
Next-Level Wireless Performance
Ranger is the world’s first zero-delay (< 1 ms) wireless video system to transmit uncompressed 4K HDR video up to 5,000 ft. line of sight. With best-in-class performance in challenging RF conditions and a wide operating range from 4.9 GHz to 6.0 GHz, Ranger offers live productions the ultimate combination of incredible video quality and wireless integrity.
Secure Video Transmission – AES-256 Encryption
Multicast-Capable – Up to 6 Receivers
Uncompressed 4K HDR Video – Patented JSCC Technology
Flexible Operating Frequencies – 4.9 to 6.0 GHz with 5 MHz Fine Tuning Intervals
Power Through Interference
Our patented Joint Source Channel Coding (JSCC) technology, utilizing MIMO and OFDM, enables the transmission of uncompressed, 10-bit, 4:2:2 video at less than 1 millisecond of delay. Ranger’s exclusive RF design is UNII-5 ready and utilizes 40 MHz / 20 MHz channels with far greater efficiency than H.264 / HEVC encoding solutions and offers better performance in the noisiest environments.
Easy Smartphone Configuration
Command your wireless workflow from the palm of your hand with the Launchpad app for iOS and Android. Pair transmitters and receivers with the touch of a button, monitor channel interference, set operating frequencies, and control your cameras directly from the app, no cables needed!
Ranger offers the industry’s best protection against prying eyes with AES-256 encryption using RSA 1024 key pairing. Combined, these two technologies ensure nobody can decrypt your wireless feed or connect another receiver to your system without explicit authorization.

*By using this product in the licensed frequencies, you acknowledge and agree to comply with all applicable regulations and rules, and to only operate this system in compliance with the applicable license requirements.
Do I need to use the panel antenna with the RX at all times?
- Ranger RX can use two different antenna configurations, either a combination of H+V antennas, or the panel antenna.
- For a longer range, more robust connection but with directionality, use the panel antenna.
- For a shorter range with omni-directional coverage, use the H+V antennas.
Can I use the Ranger RX with 5 V (stick) antennas?
No. Since Ranger TX uses 1 V and 1 H antenna, Ranger RX must always use antennas that are V and H polarized, like the H+V sets of antennas, or the panel antenna.
What is the difference between Ranger and Bolt?
While Ranger and Bolt utilize the same underlying zero delay technology, Ranger provides a number of enhancements for live productions:
- Expanded frequency range from 4.9 GHz to 6.0 GHz
- Licensed band operation
- H+V antennas, providing better image quality over longer ranges
- N-type connectors on Ranger TX
- Finer manual frequency control
