real-time wireless video transfer between the ISS and a visiting spacecraft.

So, on previous space docking where there was video from both craft being seen in real time by the people/systems controlling the docking, did they throw a line across first and plug it in? Or are TV transmission via RF no longer classed as "wireless" despite not using, erm, wires. It's a bit like "on a mobile device". Hey, we are improving and adapting a system, lets tell everyone its a "first" because we tweaked the method a bit.
