Running on the 2.4GHz frequency, the receiver transfers both TTL adjustments made on the transmitter as well as in-camera flash adjustments such as exposure compensation. High Speed Sync is also supported with shutter speeds up to 1/8000 sec. The Strato has a range of 328', and since it's a radio signal, it operates through walls and around obstructions. Choice of 4 discrete channels minimize the possibility of interference. The Strato receiver is also effective in triggering manual flash units and with separate purchase of a shutter cable for Canon it will allow you to trigger your camera remotely using an optional transmitter like a long wireless "cable release." The receiver runs on included, easily-sourced AA batteries.
