Help fitting a shower mixer to water supply

Hi all!
I've recently bought a new thermostatic shower and I'm having trouble fitting it. I'm by no means an expert but have fitted mixers in the past no problem with compression fittings. My issue is that my new shower has water inlet connectors that are threaded and I'm unsure how I'm meant to connect these to the water supply. I've never seen a mixer with these fittings before. I've done loads of Web searches but I'm struggling. I've attached some images and any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi toshfd,
You will need a couple of tap connectors to suit the tap threads (which look to be 1/2” BSP) and to match the supplying pipe size. Make sure you use washers, do not try to fit compression connectors with olives.
