How do I build my Timecode Systems workflow?

To create a timecode workflow, you will need to attach a Timecode Systems product to each recording device. To choose the best device for your needs use our Product Finder or follow the steps below.

Choose the right product:

  1. Does the recording device have a timecode input?
    1. Use an UltraSync ONE or :pulse.
    2. Read on
  2. Are you using a GoPro HERO4 or GoPro HERO6?
    1. Use the appropriate SyncBac PRO.
    2. Read on
  3. Can your device accept timecode over Bluetooth®?
    1. If filming within 10m with an UltraSync BLUE, pair up to six devices with one UltraSync BLUE. For devices more than 10m apart, use one UltraSync BLUE per unit.
    2. Read on
  4. No timecode input or timecode over Bluetooth capability?
    1. Use an UltraSync ONE to record timecode on to the audio track, and convert using the Video Tool Shed LTC Convert


Set up your sync workflow:

  1. Choose a timecode master generator:
    • Use a :pulse to open up access to the BLINK Hub app for monitoring and control features.
    • Use the :pulse, or UltraSync ONE if an external timecode input is being used.
    • If neither access to the BLINK Hub, nor an external LTC input is required, any Timecode Systems product can act as the master timecode generator and transmitter.
  2. Configure your receiving slave units:
    • Set all other Timecode Systems units in to receiving slave mode.
  3. Set up your sync:
    • Timecode and FPS are set on the master unit and will be transmitted to all of the receiving slave units over our long-range RF network, giving users accurate and reliable timecode with a range of 200m.
    • Where relevant, genlock and wordclock settings are set on each device (whether in master or slave mode) based on the requirements of the connected external device.
    • Once the green light is flashing and timecode is running on the display, you can focus on capturing great content, confident that sync is one less thing to worry about.
