Set the SYNC Output - UltraSync ONE

Set the SYNC Output

Your UltraSync ONE has a SYNC output port that can output word clock, genlock, or timecode (LTC). You should use the SYNC port if:

  • You want to output genlock to a camera for added accuracy
  • You want to output word clock to a sound mixer/recorder for added accuracy
  • You are using the LTC port as an input port and need to output timecode via a wired connection.

Note: You can use the SYNC output in any of the UltraSync ONE modes.

To use the SYNC port, you need to set the Sync O/P Mode. You may also need to set the Sync O/P Level.

  1. Set your external device (camera, sound mixer/recorder) to receive genlock, word clock, or timecode from an external source. Please refer to the manufacturer's instructions for more details.
  2. Connect your camera or sound mixer/recorder to the SYNC port. Use a suitable cable (the red DIN 1.0/2.3 to BNC cable that is supplied with your UltraSync ONE is suitable for some devices).
  3. Make sure your UltraSync ONE unit is switched on (see Switch UltraSync ONE On and Off).

  4. Press the Select button.
  5. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the Sync Generator option.

  6. Press the Select button.

  7. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the Set Sync O/P Mode option.
  8. Press the Select button.

  9. Use the Up and Down buttons to choose the output signal that is appropriate for your device. The manufacturer's instructions for your device should provide details on the type of genlock or word clock signal that is supported, and also its level.

    Note: Most cameras use 1080p genlock, but Sony cameras use 1080i (PSF).

  10. Note: You can disable SYNC output by setting the Sync O/P Mode to Off.

  11. Press the Select button to confirm.
  12. Press the Select button.

  13. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the Sync Generator option.

  14. Press the Select button.

  15. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the Set Sync O/P Level option.
  16. Press the Select button.

  17. Use the Up and Down buttons to scroll to the appropriate level for your device. We recommend that you use Std. O/P Level first, and if there is no connection between your device and the UltraSync ONE, try changing the level to High.
    • Std.O/P Level
    • High O/P Level

    Note: If you are using the SYNC port to output genlock, the Std. O/P Level is a 170mVpp signal and the High O/P Level is a 2.7Vpp signal.

  18. Press the Select button to confirm.

Your UltraSync ONE will now output a genlock, word clock, or timecode signal to your device via the SYNC port.
