This paper presents a transmit strategy for the AWGN multi-pair MIMO bidirectional broadcast channels in the wideband regime. An achievable wideband rate region and an achievable energy per bit region are provided. The transmit covariance matrix at the relay has been designed in order to maximize the wideband weighted rate sum. A closed form of the optimal matrix is derived, which shows that a single beam transmit strategy is optimal. In addition, an energy efficiency versus fairness analysis is considered. Lastly, some discussions on the minimum energy per bit are given.
