Mars M1 Support

The casing of our devices was made of metal, so the inside circuit will not be interfered by other wireless signal. Normally the power of walkie talkie is always huge which could effect the transmission if the HDMI/SDI cable shielding properties is not good. Please try to replace an HDMI/SDI cable which has a good ability of anti-interference, and keep the walkie talkie at least 1m away from the cable.

Mars M1 support 2 RX when working in TX mode, so if you only connect 1 RX, the other signal icon will show “x”.

Click 【Setting】 icon, on 【Wireless Settings】 => 【Channel Switch】 to switch the channel.

Battery Type Battery life
NP-F 970 About 4 hours
NP-F 750 About 2.5 hours
NP-F 550 About 1.2 hours

The specifications and performance of each battery are different; the approximate usage time can be calculated by the following formula:
E.g: NP-F970 battery specification: 7.4V 6600mAh   48.8Wh
Mars M1 maximum working power:14.5W
Working time = 7.4V * (6600mAh / 1000)A / 14.5W = 48.8Wh/14.5W≈3.36h≈201min

The HDMI IN and SDI IN of Mars M1 only work as 【Transmitter Mode】, in 【Receiver mode】 it won’t display the input video.

(1) Mars M1 as receiver pair to the transmitter of Mars Pro or Mars 4K:
①Mars M1 switch to 【Receiver】 mode: Click【Setting】 => 【Receiver】 on 【Function Switch】
②Mars Pro or Mars 4K Transmitter enter 【menu】 => 【Setting】 => 【Pair】
③Mars M1 click 【Pair】 to enter pairing mode at the same time.
(2) Mars M1 as transmitter pair to the receiver of Mars Pro or Mars 4K:
①Mars M1 switch to 【Transmitter】 mode: Click【Setting】 => 【Transmitter】 on 【Function Switch】
②Mars Pro or Mars 4K Receiver enter 【menu】 => 【Setting】 => 【Pair】
③Mars M1 click 【Pair】 to enter pairing mode at the same time.
Note: STEP ② and ③ enter pairing mode at the same time to pair it.

● Mars M1 supports up to 4K30 input but it only shows 1080p on the screen, and it just transmit 1080p when as transmitter.
● When input 4K30 through HDMI IN, the HDMI OUT can loopout 4K30.

① Format USB disk to 【FAT32】
② Copy 3D-LUT file (.cube) to USB disk
③ USB disk plug to 【USB-C】 interface of Mars M1
④ Click 【LUT icon】 –>【 LUT Import】
⑤ Select corresponding LUT file import to F1~F5, it will cover the current LUT in F1~F5
Note: Mars M1 only supports the LUTs file which LUT_3D_SIZE is 17 and 33, don’t support LUT_3D_SIZE is 65.

①Check the video input SDI, HDMI cable connection is reliable, or replace the cable.
②The concrete walls and human body will great attenuate the signal, so reduce wall occlusion and when there is crowd blocking between the TX and RX, the RX should be elevated 1.7m to avoid signal attenuation.

③Scan channels on RX to check whether there is interference.

DC OUT (8.2V-8.6V) can power the camera when power via NP-F battery or DC IN. You just need a 2.0mm DC Port to Dummy Battery.

Mars M1 supports HDMI / SDI input decimal video format such as 23.98/29.97/59.94, and output decimal video format from HDMI out.
