Team BlackSheep TBS Unify Evo VTX

Team BlackSheep TBS Unify Evo VTX is unique in his kind – with this brand new 5G8 video transmitter, TBS has done something nobody has done before on a video transmitter: teaching it to process images. The idea is pretty simple, the VTX no longer needs to be transmitting to set channels, and setting channels can be done in the pits.

All you need is just to show a special barcode to the camera and VTX will move to that channel or power level that is encoded in the barcode!

No fiddling with the buttons or SmartAudio setup via OSD, just point and you are done! You can also set the pit mode on and off via barcode.  Speaking about the OSD, TBS Unify Evo has built in OSD that is compatible with multiple platforms including Betaflight, iNav and TBS Crossfire.

Information from the product page

“Introducing the latest technology in TBS video transmitters! It comes with a built-in graphical OSD and microphone, talks all the protocols and transmits all the power levels! This makes it a perfect companion for any situation where you don’t have any OSD, or want to benefit from the simplicity and clarity that the TBS OSD is known for.

THE SWISS ARMY KNIFE OF VIDEO TRANSMITTERS

We packed all the features that we could into the smallest form factor possible. When we set out to make this video transmitter we were looking to make something that would fit all use cases for analog video transmitters ever envisioned. Long range, racing, freestyle, wings, cars. You name it, the VTx will shine in this application! More features are still under development and they can be loaded via the TBS AgentX with the onboard USB port. 

BARCODES? BARCODES!! (PATENT PENDING)

The VTx is capable of processing the camera image. So we taught it to read barcodes! This means the VTx no longer needs to be transmitting to set channels, and setting channels can be done in the pits. It also means no more guesswork what channel the VTx is on, simply point it at the barcode of your choice and it will move to that channel or power level! There are many more exciting features coming with this technology, stay tuned and barcode on!

CRSF, SMARTAUDIO 2.1, PWM, PITMODE

CRSF is the defacto standard in FPV and racing drones, so it makes sense that this video transmitter can both understand as well as speak CRSF. For compatibility, the VTx also speaks SA 2.1 and has the teamrace-friendly pitmode feature. PWM controls allow you to use the VTx with any radio and product. For example, you may have it on your R/C cars, R/C motorcycles or other devices that don’t have flight controllers or Crossfire and control the VTx button with a switch or button you have on the radio.”
