Amimon Launches Connex Mini; Preps 4K Transmitter

​Amimon’s Connex Mini is a compact zero-latency, plug-and-fly transmission solution.

The Connex mini is an ultra-small transmitter supporting 1080p, full HD wireless video at a range up to 1600ft. It retails for $1,299.

Partnering with Amimon in the Drone Pavilion at NAB were Override Films, a full service video production company specializing in aerial projects; and iCam Copters, a full service film production company specializing movie industry helicopters.

“The unique creative benefits that zero-latency HD wireless video transmission delivers, along with exceptional quality and high performance features, make Connex and Connex mini ideal for such a wide range of broadcast and video production projects,” said Uri Kanonich, VP Marketing, Amimon.

The bigger Connex unit features a robust 5GHz radio with 2x5 MIMO and automatic channel selection (AFS) allowing it to provide resilient connectivity, free from interference from UAV controls and other 2.4GHz radio links. Its multicasting feature supports up to four screens simultaneously while maintaining excellent HD video. The kit includes all antennas, cables and connectors required for air and ground unit setup.

Connex mini delivers full HD video quality, zero latency, digital transmission reliability, encrypted transmission, and multicasting functionality. It also provides telemetry and control solutions for S-bus, CANBUS and PPM drone controllers, and features an HDMI video interface on the receiver.

Also at NAB, Amimon previewed a solution for 4K straight from the lab. “The latency we are already able to present is practically zero, and the quality is just amazing,” claims Kanonich. “The unit's size we envision to be the size of the Connex mini. There's no need to increase size to support 4K UHD. But it will be next year before we launch it in actual products.”
