First shown at NAB earlier this year, UltraSync One is the latest addition to Timecode Systems‘ range of timecode generators and transceivers. It is now shipping for $299.
Measuring 2.2in x 1.7in x 0.7in and 1.4 ounces, and with a battery life of more than 25 hours, it is designed to provide hassle-free sync for long shooting days. This generator and transceiver provides timecode, genlock for camera sync and word clock for sound.
With the demands of multi-camera filming driving the requirement for more than just timecode to guarantee a reliable sync, Timecode Systems treats genlock and word clock as a necessity for filming today.
UltraSync One earned an honorable mention from the panel of judges for the Post Production Technology category of the Cine Gear Expo 2017 Technical Awards in recognition of the huge benefits it offers for edit workflows. Thousands of hours of content can be recorded during the course of filming a multi-camera television series. UltraSync One makes it easy to capture, log, search and synchronize this content, which means significant time and cost savings throughout the production process, from acquisition to post.
According to Paul Scurrell, CEO of Timecode Systems, production teams who have adopted the system saved a ton of time when the footage gets to the edit suite. He says it’s not just a few hours saved; it’s often days or even weeks of edit time.
