We guarantee the best prices on all products, as stipulated by our suppliers. Our exchange rate is updated twice daily on the website in order to keep the prices inline with international trends.
The cost and delivery time of your order are estimated online at the checkout. This is generally 10-15 working days but we push for better times than that constantly. Packages are generally dispatched from the manufacturer within 3-5 days after receipt of payment and are shipped via UPS with tracking. You will receive tracking notification either via SMS or email.
Shipping fees include handling and packing fees as well as postage costs and import duties into South Africa. Although shipping includes insurance, the package/s will be dispatched at your own risk. However, due to the nature of the items being purchased, special care is taken to protect these "fragile" objects.
Boxes are amply sized by either the manufacturer or by staff of PRO GEAR SA, and your items are well-protected.
The estimation is performed according to the weight of items, where they originate, and is calculate live to get the best rates possible.
We deliver orders anywhere in South Africa. Should you be outside of our borders, we can still deal with you. Contact us directly.
A courier will deliver your order right to your doorstep.
Shipping costs displayed on sales price are form the supplier to our warehouse. For orders over R5000 we will ship your items to your door FREE OF CHARGE .
For orders under R5000 there will be a small courier fee involved to get the items delivered to your door.
Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard, Debit and Credit cards, as well as via Instant EFT (SID). All our payments are secure and handled by PayGate (Pty) Ltd and FNB. We have negotiated a merchant account in order to keep these costs as slow as possible. Another option is for you to handle your own bank EFT transfer - (Place an order, print the received invoice, pay it using ORDER NUMBER as reference, and email us the Proof Of Payment).
The BETSO TCX transceiver is a 433 MHz ISM band-operated 16-channel time code transceiver, which is easily switchable from receiving to transmitting mode. Its body is made from anodized, CNC-milled aluminium alloy, which ensures the high durability of the TCX device. The top quality RF circuitry offers long-range performance and very long battery life.
The BETSO TCX multifunctional 16-channel transceiver supports all existing frame rates in the range of 23.976 fps - 30 fps (both drop frame, and non-drop frame formats).
Additionally it can handle up to two times the sped up time code, so that the real time code frame rate capability is 23.976 fps - 60 fps (both for DF and NDF formats).
Input time code format is recognized automatically.
Standard time code signal transmission mode allows the configuration of two multifunctional 16-channel transceivers (BETSO TCX) for a single time code signal transmission. This set of multifunctional 16-channel transceivers is possible to use with any other wired or wireless device processing SMPTE time code signal. This standard allows operation of the BETSO TCXS at a distance up to 350 m in the conditions of direct visibility.
The standard BETSO PACKET was developed to significantly reduce transmission failure in interfering radio environments. This standard allows transmission of the TC signal to the wireless BETSO WTCS slate and to operate at a distance of up to 450 m from the transmitter of the TC signal in conditions of direct visibility.
The multi-channel topology of the TCX device offers the possibility of operating up to 16 independent time code wireless networks at once in the same place. The benefit of multiple channel options is the possibility of switching to free channels, if the one currently used is being interfered with by noise or other electronic devices.
On one channel, at any given moment, it can operate one TCX set to time code transmitter mode, an unlimited number of TCXs set to time code receiver mode or an unlimited number of WTCS time code slates. Channels can be chosen when the battery door is opened by using the mini screwdriver tool which is included.
Thanks to precise CNC milling manufacturing technology, anodized aluminium alloy material and original hi-quality connectors and components, the TCX is very durable but still a very versatile time code unit.
The operating time of the TCX time code transceiver is up to 35 hours in time code transmission mode off one AA battery or accumulator.
Additionally, a smart power saving feature during SMPTE time code paused mode or during inactive time code input was implemented, which can increase battery life up to 8 times when this mode is activated during the TCX operation.
Low battery indication feature is indicated by continuously shining red LED diode and will self-activate when battery levels
