Which ClearView Receiver Is Best For Your Application?

Some important things to take note of:

1.  Both the Racing and Pro receiver have the same RF specifications for sensitivity, selectivity, etc.

2. Our Racing receiver has two ClearView A/V output jacks. Our Professional receiver also has two ClearView A/V output jacks. Two jacks support simultaneous use of two devices, e.g. a monitor and a recorder or goggles and a monitor, etc. However, our professional receiver has a third A/V jack that outputs video in its raw form without ClearView enhancements and without the receiver OSD. This third jack is used to gauge RF performance with and without Clearview enhancements.

3. Our Professional receiver has 30 predefined frequencies plus 8 user programmable frequencies that together support all transmitters in the 5.8GHz ISM band. Our Racing receiver can be programmed for any frequency which is stored between uses.

4. Both the ClearView Pro and Racing receivers have much higher rejection to other signals than conventional receivers. This will be especially appreciated by racing enthusiasts, where other contestants on adjacent frequencies often pass very close to your receiver when your own transmitter is far away. ClearView virtually prevents cross-locking to the interfering signal. The behaviour of the Racing receiver has been tuned to maximize rejection of adjacent signals, while the Pro allows the use of multiple cameras with quicker signal locking.

5. Our ClearView Professional receiver contains all the abilities of our Racing receiver plus a much more extensive feature set and menu system to customize the user experience and/or provide special case alternatives to function e.g. simulated diversity operation, testing for antennas, custom audio alarms, etc. as outlined  in the following table:

Notes:

  1. OSD Display. This refers to receiver information like freq, receiver bat volts, etc., not information from the remote transmitter.

  1. Raw Video. This output is video from the receiver’s internal legacy diversity system and has not been processed by ClearView. It is supplied as a means of comparison.
