Run UltraSync ONE as an RF Slave
To set your UltraSync ONE to run as an RF slave:
Connect your camera or sound mixer/recorder to your UltraSync ONE.
If you want your UltraSync ONE to provide timecode via the LTC port, connect your device to the LTC port. Use the blue DIN 1.0/2.3 to BNC cable that is supplied with your UltraSync ONE.
If you want your UltraSync ONE to provide timecode, genlock, or word clock via the SYNC port, connect your device to the SYNC output port. Use the red DIN 1.0/2.3 to BNC cable that is supplied with your UltraSync ONE.
- Position your UltraSync ONE so that it is within range of the master device in your RF network. It is easier to confirm that synchronisation has taken place if you can see the clocks and LEDs of your slave and the master at the same time.
Make sure your UltraSync ONE is switched on (see Switch UltraSync ONE On and Off).
Press the Select button.
Set the RF Country/Area. You only need to do this step if you are setting up your UltraSync ONE for the first time or are using it in a different area of the world.
- Set the Timecode Mode to RF Slave.
- Use the Local or EXT U/B option to set your UltraSync ONE to use either local user bits or external user bits (see Set the User Bits). If you choose local user bits, you will also need to set the user bits.
- If you want your UltraSync ONE to output genlock, word clock, or timecode via the SYNC port, set the appropriate SYNC O/P Mode (see Set the SYNC Output). If you are not using the SYNC output, ignore this step.
Set the output level for the port that is used for the wired connection to your external device. You need to set the level so that the voltage of the signal is appropriate for your device. For more details, see:
- Turn the master and all of the slaves in your network off.
- Turn the master unit back on.
- Turn on the slave units, including the slave UltraSync ONE you have set up in this procedure. The slave units will connect to the master.
Note: At the start of a shoot, make sure the master is switched on first and then turn on the slave units. The master needs to be turned on first so that the master and slaves can establish an accurate lock.
