You can use the UltraSync BLUE as part of a network that uses other Timecode Systems products and professional recording devices. This is useful when you want to use pro cameras and sound recorders for some scenes, but also want to use smartphones for creative angles.
Any Timecode Systems unit can be a master to an UltraSync BLUE. The UltraSync BLUE can be paired to up to six recording devices via Bluetooth.
If you are using a :pulse or :wave as the master, you can use BLINK Hub for remote monitoring and control of your UltraSync BLUE. BLINK Hub is a Timecode Systems application, and you can use it to:
- See which recording devices are paired with your UltraSync BLUE.
- Control and monitor your paired recording devices remotely. For remote control, you will need to have one UltraSync BLUE for each recording device.
The following image shows a possible pro network, where the UltraSync BLUEs are added as RF slaves and the :pulse is the master. The :pulse, UltraSync BLUEs, and UltraSync ONEs all sync via radio (RF).
The :pulse supports our BLINK Hub app, which you can use for remote control and monitoring.
To add your UltraSync BLUEs to a pro network of devices:
- Pair them with the recording devices.
Set them to run as RF slaves.
If you wanted to, you could set one UltraSync BLUE to run as the master and provide the timecode to all of the devices in the network. But in a pro network, it is more common to have the UltraSync BLUE as a slave.
