First Portable Wireless Video Link
At first, as microchip covert video technology developed, everything was wired and had to be hooked into a bulky analog video recorder at some point. But soon a wireless video sender was invented which quickly changed the way portable covert video could be done. One of the first portable units was called The Wireless Video Link and made in Canada. Here is the original ad copy for it:
