to personal computer by wireless method.
 
Question

I am searching some product (Refer to the following description.). I found your homepage by chance and I think that it is the solution.

<Some product is>

Generally AV cable is used in order to transmit the video-image from video-camera to personal computer. Now I am using this method. Of course the receiving software is working in personal computer. In this situation the bottle neck is AV cable. Now I want to transmit the video-image of video-camera to personal computer by wireless method. Is it possible? The video-image means the image that I am now recording.

In your homepage http://www.icsa.gr.jp/system/index_02.htm there is the figure where the image is transmitted from video-camera to television by wireless method.

Answer

Now I will answer hypothetically because the detailed specification of your video-camera is not clear.

Bluetooth is the possible method in order to transmit the video-image by wireless method directly from camera to personal computer without access point of radio wave LAN. In this case digital video-camera with bluetooth and personal computer with bluetooth are used. But the transmission speed is less than 2Mbps and the image quality is not so good.

The product of radio wave version of AV cable is not clear to be obtained in shop. In broadcast station the radio wave equipment is used to transmit the video-image to video-recorder. But the license is needed and the price is expensive.

It would be possible to transmit the video-image from video-camera with IEEE1394 when the infrared communication equipment with IEEE1394 was on sale. But now it seems not to be on sale.

The figure in our homepage is the cableless configuration using access point for example in the case of internet application.
