    I just registered to bringt the thread back to life again.
    I read all the solutions you posted and i'm looking myself for a solution about some weeks now.
    I just bought an iPad and want to use A/V or Composite inputs on my iPad. As you pointed out, there is no cable or adapter that will connect to the iPad directly and transmit the video into the iPad.

    But i think you all know the wireless DVB-T transmitters right? Like the Tivizen Nano or Elgato EyeTV W. They connect via Wi-Fi to the iPad and they do not require any internet connection.
    So you just power on the Tivizen Nano and you get live-TV over Wi-Fi to the iPad, without any other requirement.

    And now i just found the PCTV Broadway 2T, just google it. It can stream DVB-T to the iPad and miuch more important, it has composite input and can stream ANY composite / A/V-source to the iPad, you can connect a camera or a receiver or a ps3/xbox over composite to the Broadway 2T and it will stream the live Video to the iPad.
    The only negative thing is: IT REQUIRES A WLAN-ROUTER TO CONNECT TO :-(.

    So we have DVB-T Wireless-Streaming-Devices, which stream Video without any other requirement to the iPad and we have a Composite-Stream-Solution which require a WLAN-Router,
    WHY IS THERE NO DEVICE WHICH COMBINES BOTH?! Maybe some of you have heard of a device like that?

    A wireless Composite-Stream-Device which has the WLAN-Router built-in so it does not need any other hardware to stream the composite to the iPad?
    Come on :-(

    You cannot have a dongle that will do the job of the Broadway as it needs some beefy processing and power requirements that the iPad cannot provide. Actually, this piece of hardware is a good solution for a number of people who have posted here in the past.

    I do not think needing a wifi network/router is a big deal as you pretty much need to have that anyway when using an iPad, especially the wifi only models.

    I know how to do this. Not sure quality of video, but it should be marginally degraded from the source up to SVGA resolution(600 x 800). I am considering a kickstarter campaign to fund production, and would be interested in hearing how much support this would gather. Cost is expected to be $500 or less.

    Thanks,
    Brian

    You a day late and a dollar short. Teradek is already making a product to do this. The Teradek Clip is the most inexpensive solution that accepts and HDMI signal and transmits it to an IOS device or web browser via Wifi with a maximum latency of 4 frames, at 30 fps that not much (they even have their own app in the app store). It retails for $599. It was designed for unmanned aerial drones but has a practical use on the ground too. For a more professional application Teradek makes a step up model that will accept HD-SDI the Teradek Cube and it runs about $1200.

    Both of these devices can function with or without the use of a wireless router because they have the ability to create their own wifi network.

    Hi guys,
    interesting conversation. I'm also looking for an iPad solution as we want to control the Canon 5D MK III 's vid settings (plus a liveview monitor) via an application. We're using it right now on ground level, in some years in mid-air (camera mounted on an octocopter).
    First of all, there is a solution coming (or at least I think so). The developer Chainfire from xda-developers already created a pretty cool App called "DSLR Controller", which lets you control your whole camera (USB or WIFI) - LiveView, shutterspeed, ISO, F-stop, time lapse, video.
    But: it's just for Android. You're able to control Canon cameras only. And it's still in beta....
    Some days ago I found a video on YT which shows Chainfire working on an iOS solution. :thumbs: He used a jailbreaked iPad mini, a 5D, Apple's camera connection kit and the camera's USB cable. As you can see he is already using the iPad as an external monitor - with about 30 FPS.
    You can find it here: youtu [.] be / Y21D2l2TL2I
    I know there are some other solutions like CamRanger or even Capture Pilot if you're using one of PhaseOne's IQ2 digital backs (lol) but I think DSLR Controller is the most powerful app in this segment.

    Sooo, I guess we will just have to wait and see until he releases it ;)

    Joshua

    Ipad as video montior

    Teradyx out of grass valley has a wireless sender that your attached to any video camera through usb or hdmi it sends a closed wifi that your ipad can monitor in real time. Its expensive about $1200.00 you can be up to 300ft we use to monitor shots in car cases etc in real time.
