Airborne Innovations has released a low cost high definition video compression system aimed at DIY/educational use.
This low cost system has limited features compared with the more capable MicroraptorHD platform.
However, the low cost system is capable of interfacing with an HD board camera capable of 720p/1080p, or with the analog HD component interface option it can be used with cameras like the Sony FCB-H11 HD block camera (supporting up to 1080i).  Latency is good enough for most FPV purposes.
A standard definition option is also available.

Complete kits are available with 2.4GHz / 5.8 GHz radios, or the compression board can be purchased alone.

RF power output is 1W (2.4 GHz).  Weight of the compression board and radio is 76 grams.
Currently a laptop can be used to view and record the video.
The Silicon Micro Display 1080p HD goggles are another option for visualization.

Low cost is still a relative term, but this is definitively a nice step in the right direction.

I have been working on a programmable camera platform called Hackacam.  It is live on Kickstarter at the moment

It can encode and stream 1080p30 video in H.264, with interchangeable lens.  Take a look and see what you think!

Looks like you will get funded. As of this time you need $440 and have 16 days to go. I hope you are on track with your delivery date (would be the first for the kickstarters I've backed) because I will be home and working on my UAV at that time. Good luck.

It's work :)))

Sample here.

Hello JC,

What is the advantage of your board vs the Airborne Innovation (except cost!)
