Hi all,

My name is Simon and I'm on my way to become a 2nd AC. At the moment I'm working as a trainee in a german rental house :)

We rent the Sony DV Watchmans (like the Sony GV-D 1000 Watchman) with an UHF-tuner so that the director and the 2nd AD have the chance to see and also to record parts of the shooting.
The Sony DV Watchmans are not really very reliable and you don't get support for them anymore ;)

We are always looking for an alternative wireless product but the only one we know at the moment is a harddisk recorder developed by another german rental house. (Not yet available) It would even be cool to have one with an internal hard disk recorder and without tapes.

I wonder if there are any other alternative products out there and wanted to ask you if you may know some of them? :)

Thanks for your answers!


Sorry for the bad english...

Simon
