The events in these movies occurred before those of The Original Series TV show, yet the transporter technology far outmatched that of any series.
Outmatches the standard tech seen in pretty much every episode, true, but the transwarp transporter in these movies is presented as experimental tech and thus not without a certain amount of imprecision (i.e., it's riskier to use than standard tech.) Further, examples have been pointed out in previous threads on this topic of more or less comparable transporter tech being used in one or more TV series.
