In addition to the standard Buddy specification these features make the :mini rx unique.
A generator buffered receiver
Timecode Buddy: mini rx is an extremely accurate internal timecode and genlock generator ensure the :mini rx buffers and stays perfectly synced to its partner Buddy unit, even if RF is lost.
A petite package
Measuring just 29mm x 44mm x 70mm and weighing a mere 122g, Timecode Buddy: mini rx is perfectly proportioned to attach to a camera.
A cost-effective sync solution
Our customers, and the production teams they work for, told us they wanted a lower cost, but equally accurate, solution for syncing multiple sound and camera sources. Timecode Buddy: mini rx was designed to meet this requirement.
Power source on
An internal Li-Polymer rechargeable battery charges the Timecode Buddy: mini rx for a minimum of 10-15 hours. You can also plug it up via a micro USB 5V and external 7-24V DC
On the go connectivity
Complete firmware updates on the go using the micro USB connection. We’re also hatching plans to use this port to transfer metadata in future.
