Is there a timecode solution for DSLR?

If a camera does not accept Timecode IN then we can use a work around.

If you're using a minitrx+ attached to the camera you can do this through our custom BNC to Mini-jack cable (TCB-42). 

If you're using an UltraSync ONE you can do this through our custom DIN to Mini-jack cable (TCB-52).

You can drop the LTC output of the units to MIC level and input the timecode on the camera's audio track. This provides a quicker and neater solution in post - for example in Avid which can natively decode aux LTC from the audio track. It also gives you a visual way to check that the timecode is in sync across all of the devices, by comparing the displays/blinking lights.

You can also convert via a simple process the 'AUX TC' from audio track into an embeded audio clip with timecode.

The following apps can easily do the conversation as a simple process:

Avid Media Composer

We have put together a short video which demonstrates both of these solutions here:

The TCB-42 and TCB-52 can also be purchased via our web store:
