VAXIS Launches ATOM 600 KV Wireless for RED KOMODO

This dedicated wireless video system for RED Komodo has a few tricks up its sleeve…

Vaxis has officially launched their long-awaited ATOM 600 KV wireless video system specifically designed for the RED Komodo 6K camera.

A few months ago, we wrote about the initial announcement, however it has taken some time for Vaxis to improve their initial design and make a few changes based on early feedback.

Dedicated Wireless Video Transmitter for RED Komodo 

The Atom 600 KV can tirelessly transmit 1080p/60 video at up to 600 feet line of sight, with very low 0.08s latency. And unlike your average wireless video transmitter, it has a built-in V-mount battery plate and additional I/O.

HDMI Output and SDI In / Out

It mounts directly into the Canon BP battery slots of the RED Komodo, and also features an OLED display, power pass-thru, and SDI/HDMI loop out. That last one – HDMI output is a big deal since the KOMODO lacks an HDMI output of its own. 

Moreover, this allows many users to mount 3rd party budget EVFs or HDMI-only monitors to their RED Komodo camera rig. This opens quite a few possibilities for RED Komodo owners. 

In addition, the Atom 600 KV has a built-in smart fan, which can be turned on or off. This feature can be very useful in mission critical sound situations.

Wireless Video to up to 3 Smart Devices

You can send a wireless video signal (via WiFi) to up to 3 smart phones or tablets running the VAXIS Vision iOS app (Android version is in the works), or alternatively to a VAXIS wireless receiver. The ATOM 600KV is compatible with the latest ATOM 500 SDI system (and the rest of the VAXIS family).

Horizontal/Vertical V-mount plate Orientation

One of the main requests on the initial Atom KV 600 posting on the reduser forum was that a lot of users wanted the ability to use the V-mount plate vertically.

And, Vaxis has delivered – users now have the option to rotate the V-mount plate horizontally or vertically depending on their style or preference.

Pricing and Availability

The new VAXIS ATOM 600 KV is priced at $749 for the TX only version.

Alternatively, you can purchase the the ATOM 600 KV Kit, which also comes with the ATOM 500 SDI RX for $999. Both are currently available to pre-order directly from Vaxis or authorised dealers such as B&H Photo in the US.
