Robust wireless HD performance in small packages
Compare to systems costing $3500 … AND UP!
Applications: Event coverage, Wireless video to big screens, Director's monitors, Gimbals, Cranes
Simple plug and play operation with HDMI resolution up to 1080P(60)
LOS range 1600 ft. (500 m.)
Zero Transmission delay (less than 1 mS)
Automatic frequency selection
Multicast up to 4 receivers
New: Transmitter cage with rod antennas and full size secured HDMI connector
Note: The original CMR Connex mini transmitter cage provided mounting for the strip antennas supplied with the Connex mini.
The rod antennas provide a more conventional form factor. Range and performance are similar to the strip antennas. And a standard HDMI connector has been added for an improved mechanically robust HDMI connection.
Combined with CMR accessories, the Amimon Connex mini provides industry leading performance/cost benefit opportunities for wireless HD in any production environment or venue.
The Connex mini transmitters and receivers are smaller and lighter than the original Connex. The transmitter does not have a cooling fan, and power consumption of both the transmitter and receiver is lower than the Connex. The transmitter (air unit) with ~ 5 hr. battery weighs only 8.4 oz. The receiver (ground unit) with ~ 4 ½ hr. battery weighs only 11.6 oz.
The Connex mini shares most of the wireless performance characteristics of the original Connex, with the exception of LOS range 1600 ft. And like the Connex, the mini does not transmit audio.

Range Considerations - Connex vs. Connex mini
Our testing is on-going, but here’s what we can say:
Free field (no reflections) testing within the LOS range of the mini is similar to the original Connex (see Connex Range Considerations [link to]) in side-by side testing. This is true for testing with just transmitter antennas blocked, and also both transmitter and receiver antennas blocked.
Going through walls range is also similar, with the original Connex having slightly better performance. Although one user has reported much better performance through walls with the original Connex compared to the mini.
Bottom line: The original Connex appears to have better performance in noisy RF environments. If you need the best possible wireless HD performance for your application, the original Connex is the way to go. But we believe the Connex Mini will meet or exceed the wireless HD requirements of most users.
