Timecode Systems Now Shipping the :mini trx+ With B:LINK Compatibility
ORCESTER, UK — Aug. 27, 2015 — Timecode Systems Ltd., a pioneer in wireless technologies for sharing timecode, sync, and metadata, announced today it is now shipping the :mini trx+ with B:LINK compatibility. The :mini trx+ also features several new upgrades that improve performance and provide increased mounting options.
“We originally created the super-compact :mini trx as a smaller alternative to the award-winning :wifi master, and now we’ve improved it further by adding some great new features, as well as B:LINK compatibility,” said Adam Parr, global sales director at Timecode Systems. “Now, in addition to providing super-accurate timecode, genlock, and word clock, it allows users to leverage the built-in B:LINK RF network to monitor status and control remotely. There is nothing else on the market that offers these features, and certainly not in a product of this diminutive size.”
The proprietary B:LINK RF network protocol keeps the same incredibly accurate wireless sync over the robust sub-GHz ISM bands but adds enhanced two-way multiplexed status/control from the :mini trx+ (acting as a SLAVE device) back to a B:LINK master device such as the Timecode Systems :wave. The Wi-Fi network of the :wave then allows the user to view the status and control settings of the :mini trx+ from third-party applications such as MovieSlate 8 and the Timecode Buddy :app.
The :mini trx+ also features a higher-capacity lithium-ion polymer battery upgrade and an option for a second LTC or word clock output from the sync BNC connector. Also included is a new anodised, solid aluminium bracket with multiple quarter-inch threaded mounting holes and a detachable hot-shoe mount. This feature allows for solid and flexible mounting.
For existing :mini trx users, a :mini trx+ upgrade package is available for a nominal fee. Users who purchased a :mini trx product after 1 July 2015 will pay only a shipping charge.
