With SlingStudio's video-grade wireless technology, you can connect a combination of up to 10 smartphones, professional cameras, and camcorders. SlingStudio’s robust wireless technology operates with minimal interference at distances up to 300 feet – without cables – greatly reducing your setup time.

It will quickly drain the battery of connected devices so I suggest having many USB battery packs nearby to keep everything running when running remotely. I would like to see some controls for adjusting audio sync as some HDMI devices might throw a delay into the mix if you're bringing in line audio.
