Which software to use for displaying Downlink image full screen on laptop
Hey guys!

I have a 5.8 ghz Video downlink from Wireless video Cameras.com
It seems to be a fine product. I have only tested on the ground with Samsung video camera and Canon XSI (450). So far so good
I have trouble finding free software (i found a few for $30) taht will let me display preview image full screen.
Any sugestions?

Thank you!

VV

both acctualy.

I found sotware that works but they want $30 for it. Maybe i should not be so cheap and just buy it . I was sure there is free stuff that will do that.
Anyway here is the link to the program ...

Ditto, or get a cheap 12 volt lcd tv with AV in jacks. I got mine at Crappy Tire for under $100. You can then watch a hockey game while waiting for the light to change.

Unfortunately will only work for a few more months in the US as it is not ASTC. But will be dirt cheap on EBay.

PS hope NTSC and Avi is around for a while. Hate to have to upgrade everything.

PPS...Check out the Auto section in Canadian Tire, they have some killer deals on extra DVD monitors (with AVin), built in mounting hardware and console, for under $80. HDTV and ASTC just made this stuff cheap.

It would be a video Capture card that would go into a PCMCIA slot on your laptop. You guys suit yourself but I would strongly discourage you from going this direction. Software is included in the bundle when you buy it and it is JUNK! This is how I started out and I can tell you it is a major hassle. I finally bought a $79.00 portable DVD player at Wally World, ran my downlink RX directly into that, hooked it all up to a switch and a 3s 2200 lipo powers all of it. It works all the time EVERY time. No waiting for my laptop to bootup, then trying to get all the planets to line up with the lame software so you can get a picture, the "Crap, my laptop battery just went dead, or the stupid thing wanting to go into hibernation yada yada, the list goes on and on. Save yourself the trouble and get a protable monitor of some sort, you will be glad you did.American by Birth, Alaskan by the grace of God!!

Burnt, it totally agree, just wanted to know how

Dvd is the way to go, and the thicker my wallet gets, the closer to a Ultra Bright Sunlight viewable color TFT LCD i get (similar to large chart plotter screens)

Hehe, yea, quality never goes out of style, and the good news is that it doesnt cost more than 6000$
OR you could go for this 19" with 9 AV inputs, and it cost just slightly more, just 20 000$

I would look into the hummingbird dayview monitors before you drop that kind of cash.

They are the brightest I have ever seen, HD capable for focus assist etc. and come in at around 2,000 for a nice size

Forget the DVD player, one more piece of equipment to haul around, break down, battery died etc espically if you have the laptop already. Go to best buy and get one of those usb devices to watch tv on your computer, mine is a pinnacle brand, wintv works fine too. Plug the lighter size device into your usb and the other end to you downlink and you are done. You can even watch tv on it with remote control while waiting for the clouds to clear. (yes it has a seperate antannae for this)

As most are saying a TFT LCD monitor for a few bucks works great, stick a coloured spot in the middle of the screen & away you go. You don't need to capture any pics or video on your side, as the heli captures it all.

Thank you all !

I am using pinacle studio in a box and video link EX for the software. (rca to usb, works with VISTA)
It works great now and it is full screen.
However , i am starting to think that TFT screen by itself would be better just beacuse of portability.
It is nice to have the laptop with you to edit and burn pictures on the spot if required and it records the flight itself on the HD

Better off investing in a web page and FTP software on your wireless capable laptop. Goto Starbucks and upload quick edited pictures to your site, email the client with the URL if they want proofs NOW.

Editing, burning, printing in the field is a great idea, but, for that little bit of WOW factor it just may be too much of a hassle in the long run. Laptops, printers, portable VCR's (been around awhile) and inverters/power supplies all stay home now.

Go back to your home office in a controlled environment and do it right. Do what gives you great pictures, not whats makes you look great taking pictures. Results not hype.
