Preparation - Before you Set Up your UltraSync ONE
The 'quick set up' instructions are designed to help you get your UltraSync ONE up and running as soon as possible. They assume that you are familiar with the master-slave relationship, the RF network, and know how to navigate through the UltraSync ONE menu. If you need more detailed step-by-step instructions, or extra information about a setting, please refer to the section about that setting.
To get started:
- Make sure you understand the various modes and network types. To learn about these subjects, see:
When you understand the modes and relationships, you are ready to set up your UltraSync ONE.
- Refer to the Getting Started section for the mode you want your UltraSync ONE to use. The Getting Started section refers you to the quick set up instructions that relate to your intended use of your UltraSync ONE.
Note: If you want to jam your UltraSync ONE to an external device, see Jam UltraSync ONE to a Signal.
There are two different ways to set your UltraSync ONE to run as a master:
Please follow the instructions for the setup that meets your requirements.
Note: Your UltraSync ONE cannot be used as a master in a BLINK network, as it has no wi-fi or ethernet capabilities. In a BLINK network, a :pulse or :wave has to be the master.
You can set your UltraSync ONE so that it runs as an RF Slave and synchronises with the timecode of a 'master' Timecode Systems device. The master can be any Timecode Systems product with a master mode, including another UltraSync ONE. However, if you want to be able to view your UltraSync ONE via BLINK Hub, its master must be a :pulse or :wave.
To set your UltraSync ONE to run as an RF Slave, follow the instructions in:
To learn about the master-slave synchronisation that occurs when you set your UltraSync ONE up as an RF slave, see:
Your UltraSync ONE can receive timecode, FPS, and user bits data from an external device and then pass this on to other devices. To work in this way, your UltraSync ONE needs to run in EXT LTC Input mode.
There are two different ways of using EXT LTC Input mode. You can set your UltraSync ONE to:
- Receive timecode via the LTC port and then transmit timecode to slaves via radio. Follow the steps in Set UltraSync ONE to use LTC as an Input.
- Receive timecode via the LTC port and then transmit timecode via a wired connection. Follow the steps in Set UltraSync ONE to use LTC as an Input and Send Timecode from a Standalone UltraSync ONE.
