Camcorder and a PMW-500
Memory Camcorder (called "camcorder" in this
document) to a computer or mobile device via Wi-Fi.

Supports 3 wireless LAN standards
This adapter supports the general-purpose IEEE802.11b/g/
n wireless standard, which can be used worldwide.
Connect to computers in ad hoc mode
When a wireless LAN access point is not available (for
example, when you are shooting outdoors), you can make
a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi connection between your computer
and camcorder. When you make a Wi-Fi connection
between your computer and camcorder, you can send files
including clips from your camcorder to your computer,
and edit them at the shooting location. You can also use the
supplied Sony Planning Metadata Add-in application to
create planning metadata on your computer, send them to
your camcorder, and set the names of files to record.
The ability to connect your computer and camcorder
wirelessly gives you the freedom to choose where to set up
and move your camcorder.
Connect to a LAN infrastructure mode
You can make Wi-Fi connections between a computer and
multiple camcorders via a wireless LAN access point.
This enables you to send planning metadata to multiple
camcorders at the same time, and manage multiple
camcorders centrally from a single computer.

your computer enables you to do the following.
