No Wi-Fi Interference - Details:

1. Intelli-G is designed to be placed in close proximity to the camera.
The signal power (Wi-Fi range) of Intelli-G is extremely small, a few meters only. The Wi-Fi transmission power of Intelli-G is insignificant compared to the power of Lightbridge or of other RC Systems.

2. Intelli-G Wi-Fi is only used for communication with Wi-Fi capable cameras.
Intelli-G does not use Wi-Fi to connect over long distance. To communicate over long distance, Intelli-G has to be installed on the rig (multirotor, crane, cable-cam) and be connected to the existing RC systems.

3. The quantity of data transferred between Intelli-G and the camera is tiny.
Only simple commands are sent between Intelli-G and the camera when you are changing the camera settings and they do not require large bandwidth. As a result, only a single Wi-Fi channel is used by Intelli-G.

4. The 2.4 Ghz band is split into multiple channels.
The Wi-Fi working frequencies are overlapping with the 2.4GHz RC systems, but there are plenty of channels from which the RC systems can choose to work on. All current RC Systems are transmitting and receiving on multiple channels of the 2.4Ghz band and are calibrating on the channel with the best signal.

5. The 5.8 GHz (video) band is not affected.
The 5.8GHz band (typically used for video transmission in RC applications) is not affected in any way by Intelli-G, which only communicates in the 2.4GHz band.
More than this, 5.8GHz is not a multiple of 2.4GHz and so, not even the harmonics of the two frequency bands do not overlap).

Examples of use:
We have initially developed this device in spring 2014 for internal use in various aerial setups (using standard RC Systems or Lightbridge 1 and 2) and we are constantly using it.

Here is an example of a major event in which we have heavily used Intelli-G Long Range under, theoretically, adverse conditions. The event has hosted around 75000 people (all using their mobile devices) and the entire stadium had Wi-Fi hotspots all over.

The video setup implied:
  • A cable-cam system with two 2.4Ghz receivers (a Futaba receiver and a FrSky receiver). One receiver was connected to the cable system and gimbal, the other was connected to Intelli-G which was controlling a Sony A7S2.
  • In the air, a multi-copter having mounted in parallel a DJI LB2 system (for control & FPV), a Connex system (for live video broadcast), an IntelliG and a Panasonic GH4 camera with Wi-Fi enabled.
Also, we have multiple customers who are performing live transmissions from drones or cable-cams and using Intelli-G for over a year.
