NEP is proud to announce that their Broadcast Sports International (BSI) team has won an IABM BaM Awards® 2020 in the Connect category for their Mini Tx UHD. The Mini Tx UHD, developed fully in-house by BSI, is the worlds smallest, low-latency, UHD wireless transmitter in the world.

Reacting to the win, Dean Coughlan, Director of Engineering & Technical Operations for BSI, said, "A few years ago, BSI took on the challenge of developing the world's smallest broadcast-quality UHD transmitter, and my team of engineers and manufacturers rose to that challenge. They have created an amazing product optimized for delivering live entertainment and sporting events. This dedicated, innovative team truly deserved this honor, and I couldn't be more proud. Our whole team at BSI would like to thank The IABM for this recognition."

Measuring just 85mm long by 56 mm wide and 28mm deep, BSI’s Mini Tx UHD can transmit in two entirely different frequency bands (e.g., 2GHz & 7GHz) via its software-defined radio, offering complete on-site spectrum flexibility without the need for changeable radio modules. But, even with its compact size, the Mini Tx UHD includes all the features expected from a traditional wireless video transmitter, and more, with pre-distortion, GPS, WiFi and a 3-axis accelerometer as standard and a dual UHF receiver to add robustness and flexibility to the camera control.

When selecting the Mini Tx UHD as the winner, the panel of judges said, “This is a huge enabler for both sports and reality TV due to the places it can be utilized, particularly when worn on the body and will unlock new camera angles and views connecting consumers to the content they are watching in more compelling ways. Provides a solution to low latency efficient UHD links for wireless cameras in an increasingly important area of live production.”
