Timecode Buddy: Mini Trx

The Timecode Buddy: mini trx can be used as a standalone transceiver unit or can be paired with a Timecode Buddy: wifi master


Compact, robust and lightweight, this miniature multi-channel timecode transmitter is the perfect sidekick to the Timecode Buddy: wifi master. Together they provide a simple and reliable way to ensure cameras and sound can sync the same timecode.

A super accurate standalone generator, a transceiver, TC IN and OUT and Genlock out – the Timecode Buddy: mini trx offers all the functionality of the Timecode Buddy: wifi master just without the wifi. So, it's much smaller in size. Measuring up at just 29mm x 44mm x 70mm and weighing just 122g, this miniature timecode powerhouse is perfectly proportioned to attach to a camera.
