Ultra compact timecode, genlock generator and RF receiver

  • Ultra compact and lightweight
  • Highly accurate timecode generator & receiver
  • Cable free way to sync – long range wireless
  • Perfect when paired with the trx+, wave or pulse


The smallest timecode and genlock generator with RF on the market.



An extremely accurate and stable TCXO is the key to this compact timecode and genlock generator, ensuring that even when free running the mini rx would only drift around 0.2 frames in a 24 hour period from other units. However, the built in RF receiver allows the mini rx to be constantly soft-locked to the long range RF signal from any Timecode Systems unit transmitting as a ‘master  clock’.

Zero drift – all day long.

Fail safe

If the mini rx goes out of range from the Timecode Systems RF ‘master clock’, it will seamlessly continue to generate rock solid timecode and genlock from its internal generator.

As soon as the mini rx picks up the RF signal once more, it will automatically ‘soft lock’ to the master clock. All under the hood. All whilst still feeding the camera ultra stable timecode and genlock.

Wherever you are

Don’t worry about location. Every Timecode Systems product comes pre-programmed with 14 licence free international channels  within the sub GHz ISM bands.

These frequency bands are well away from the congested 2.4GHz WiFi and Bluetooth bands, allow for greater range using less power and tend cope with obstacles more effectively.
