2 Operational Guidance
The two 5.8GHz wireless receiver modules, the two independently workable display modules and the new DVR
system used to support the 2D & 3D display modes are built in the SKY03 FPV goggles. The wireless receiver
system can work in the diversity receiver mode to improve the receiving effect. In this mode, the channel and band
settings for wireless receiver can be compatible with most of the conventional ISM 5.8GHz transmitters, in order to
support the 6 bands and the 48 channels (for detailed bands and channels, see the specification).
The matching 3D camera SCAM303 and the conventional 5.8G transmitter can be put into use in the 3D mode.
The two lenses of the 3D camera can be set for shot by means of the parallel method. When the camera is set for
a certain close shot, the third dimension will be enhanced effectively. When the camera is set for a long-distance
shot, the third dimension will be weakened, but the more vivid visual experiences will be presented as a whole.
The new DVR system can not only further enhance the quality of analog video recording, but also can make
use of the high-quality H.246 video compression technology to better restore the video screen, save the more
storage space, support the 128GB high-capacity memory card(UHS-I U1), and support the automatic video
recording function. For details, see the description of the "Video" section.
