• How will my :wave appear in my device's Wifi settings?

    The SSID to identify your pulse on the network can be found on the display of the unit, by scrolling through the display screens. Please ensure that Wifi is enabled in the options menu, and that Ethernet is disabled.

    Turn the knob until you see find a screen displaying the following information:
    Wifi: Soft AP
    Status: Ready
    IP 192.167.83.1
    ID Wave083

    The ID 'Wave083' will be listed on your devices' detected Wifi networks. Please select this network in order to gain access to the BLINK Hub.

    If you are accessing the BLINK Hub via a browser, rather than the app, you will need to enter the IP address in to your browser. Learn more about that here.

  • What cable do I need – TCB-40 or TCB-41?

    We have two custom interface cables available to connect your :wave or :pulse to your Sound Devices.

    To connect directly from LEMO 9 pin port of the :wave into the USB-B port of your 6-series you will need the TCB-40. If however you are using the CL-12 and so the USB-B port is already in use you can instead use the TCB-41 – which connects from the LEMO 9 pin port on the :wave to the USB-A keyboard port on the CL-12.

  • Does the Sound Devices integration work with the 788t?

    Currently the integration between Sound Devices and the :wave/:pulse only works with the 6 series, as we have not have access to the protocols for the 788t. If and when we gain access to these protocols, we will of course look into adding integration for the 788t.

  • What is the difference between the :wave and :pulse?

    The :wave and :pulse are very similar products, both offering a lot of the same features. They are both timecode and genlock/word clock RF transceivers, can act as both a master or a slave for our BLINK protocol and have a built in Wi-Fi network for connecting to apps, such as MovieSlate or the BLINK Hub, on your phone/tablet/iPad.

    The :wave was designed with the sound department in mind and so has lead the way for the Sound Devices integration. The :pulse offers all of the same features as the :wave but is more geared towards the camera department. Alongside the Sound Devices integration it offers status monitoring and camera control of the certain cameras connected with one of our units (for example GoPros connected with a SyncBac PRO) via our BLINK Hub app. It also has Ethernet connections to allow you to set up a wired connection to our app via a MacBook, rather than wirelessly to a tablet in congested Wi-Fi areas.

    Although we originally thought that the :wave would be for the sound department and the :pulse would be for the camera department, we have found that some sound guys are interested in using the :pulse so that they can also offer the camera control and status monitoring of certain cameras available through our BLINK Hub app.
