A new solution in terms of mobile action wireless systems, Dart ushers in a new generation of ultraportable 5GHz wireless transmitters designed specifically for use with action cameras and gimbals.

The incredible small Dart has an integrated LPE6 battery plate which offers up to 2 hours of runtime from a single battery, while its miniUSB output allows you to power both your GoPro camera and Dart from the same battery. For extended periods of shooting, Dart can be connected to a 2A USB battery pack to keep the system operating for hours on end.

“Customers have requested a dramatically smaller long-range transmitter, for those times when size is an issue on set,” says GM Greg Smokler. “Dart is our answer.”

Dart’s transmitter and receiver feature ¼”20 and 440 mounting points to accommodate a wide range of camera accessories, allowing you to easily attach the system to any rig. Its chassis is constructed of milled aluminum and acts as a heat sink to ensure optimal operation in extreme environmental conditions. Despite its metal enclosure, the Dart system is strikingly lightweight, 100g (TX), 400g (Rx).

Dart’s microHDMI input supports video signals up to 1080p30/i60 and its receiver can output via HDMI or HDSDI, depending on selected model.

The Paralinx Dart HDMI system is priced at $2,999.95. For $3,299.95, the system comes with an HDSDI receiver.
