- No timecode input or timecode over Bluetooth capability?
- 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:
- 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.
- Configure your receiving slave units:
- Set all other Timecode Systems units in to receiving slave mode.
- 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.
