Worcester, UK (October 2, 2018)—Timecode Systems has introduced UltraSync BLUE, which uses a new patented timecode sync and control protocol to transmit timecode to a recording device over Bluetooth.
UltraSync BLUE uses Bluetooth pairing to connect to a device, enabling timecode to be transmitted wirelessly from the unit directly into the media file of a connected device. At launch, both the MAVIS professional camera app and Apogee MetaRecorder app (both for iPhone) are already fully compatible, allowing sound and video recorded on iPhone devices to be synchronized over the Timecode Systems network.
A UltraSync BLUE unit can sync up to four recording devices shooting in close range over Bluetooth, making it an option for small shoots and interviews, and also for content captured for vlogs and social media.
The device itself measures 55 mm x 43 mm x 17 mm and weighs 36 grams.
Working with more professional equipment, UltraSync BLUE can be connected to devices over Bluetooth and then synced over long-range RF to other camera and audio recorders using Timecode Systems units. This also includes any equipment containing a Timecode Systems OEM sync module, such as the AtomX Sync module that was recently launched by Atomos for the new Ninja V.
Zoom Corporation is working on new releases of H3-VR Handy Recorder and F8n MultiTrack Field Recorder, which will both have the ability to receive timecode over Bluetooth from the UltraSync BLUE.
Shipping later this month, UltraSync BLUE will retail for $179.
