Monitoring a play
on Apr 20, 2007 at 5:51:11 am

Hello every one,

I am producing & directing a play. I am looking for a way to let the actors & Band see what is happing on stage. Kind of like CCCTV but with out the wires. I'm looking for a Wireless event video solution. Can anyone help me out. Keep in mind that I don't want to record the event.

Something like this is availalbe-

And try Sam's Club or Costco.

But remember, wire-LESS
is NEVER as reliable as WIRED.

Running on small cable can make SURE the video and audio will be THERE when you need it.

Back in my youth before I was a wanna-be director (when I was a wanna-be actor) I was doing some play that some tight cues but the stage manager couldn't see the action on that particular part of the stage from her station.

She ended up putting a wireless video baby-monitor camera up in the catwalk. It was from Wal-Mart (ugh) or Kmart or somesuch... I remember it was pretty good (certainly good enough for what it was being used for) for being dirt cheap (like $100 or less, including the monitor).
