EXT LTC Input
You can set your UltraSync ONE to receive timecode from a device that is connected to the LTC port. The timecode can then be used by your UltraSync ONE, and passed on to other devices, including any slave UltraSync ONEs in the network.
Note: EXT LTC Input mode is a master mode. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of master and slaves, see Master and Slaves.
There are two ways to use EXT LTC Input mode:
The most common way to using EXT LTC Input mode is to set your UltraSync ONE to receive timecode from an external device, and then send it to slaves via RF.
In EXT LTC Input mode, your UltraSync ONE receives timecode, FPS, and user bits data from an external device that is connected to the LTC port. It also acts as a master in an RF network, and so sends the timecode, FPS, and user bits to any slave devices that are in range, using the same RF channel as the master.
When a slave receives the data, it updates its own timecode and FPS settings to match. It may also update its user bits settings to match, but this depends on whether the slave is configured to use local user bits or can accept external user bits.
To learn how to set up your UltraSync ONE to use EXT LTC Input mode in this way, see Set UltraSync ONE to use LTC as an Input.
You can set your UltraSync ONE to use EXT LTC Input mode without using an RF network. This is useful if you cannot use radio communications, perhaps because of interference or restrictions on the use of radio in your filming environment.
In this arrangement, you connect a UltraSync ONE to the external device, and manually jam it to the timecode signal (see Free Running and Jamming).
To learn how to set your UltraSync ONE to use EXT LTC Input mode to work independently, with no RF network, see Set UltraSync ONE to use LTC as an Input and Send Timecode from a Standalone UltraSync ONE.
