Deity is changing the face of wireless audio with its new multi-functional BP-TRX transceiver. The single unit packs in 7 different operating modes, allowing it to be used as a transmitter, receiver, IEM, camera hop, master transmitter, a timecode box, or a standalone recorder.
As a transmitter, it relies on the 2.4 GHz frequency band while offering 24-bit 48kHz BWAF WAV recordings, multiple RF output power options (10, 25, 50, 100mW, auto), analog limiters, a low cut filter, and encrypted audio. The BP-TRX also adds simultaneous wireless transmission and internal recording via microSD. The one caveat is that functionality is only available on units sold outside the United States. If you do live in the U.S., the workaround is to buy a unit sold outside and have it mailed to you.
The unit can also become a single channel receiver as well as a standalone recorder, recording directly to a microSD card. Having the ability to record to microSD card is ideal when a wireless signal is not possible or when stashing a microphone.The unit is also an accurate timecode box with timecode accuracy of ±0.2ppm. This puts the BP-TRX inline with most of the industry-standard SMPTE timecode boxes and recorders on the market. The unit will drift 1 frame after running 24 hours. Standard timecode frame rates of 23.976ND, 24ND, 25ND, 29.97ND, 29.97D, 30ND, 30D are supported.
An update to the BP-TX, the BP-TRX offers about 328 feet (100m) of operating distance and runs off of a rechargeable internal battery. As a transmitter, it provides around 12 hours of battery life in timecode and recording-only modes and offers about 24 hours of runtime.

The BP-TRX retails for $249 and includes timecode sync cables, a lavalier, USB-C charging cable, and a USB adapter for firmware updates. More information can be found on its product page.
