UltraSync BLUE is the first product from Timecode Systems to use Bluetooth® pairing to connect and synchronise compatible recording devices. Once connected, timecode is transmitted wirelessly from the UltraSync BLUE directly into the media file of a connected device. There are no cables and no mounting issues, giving more freedom to shoot from creative angles with smaller, more mobile cameras. Please refer to the list below to see which devices are compatible.
By removing the restrictions of a wired connection, crews not only gain extra convenience, they also get even more versatility to choose how they sync. Use a single UltraSync BLUE unit to sync up to six recording devices shooting in close range over Bluetooth®. Or alternatively, connect the UltraSync BLUE to a Timecode Systems RF network and sync to other camera and audio recorders using Timecode Systems units on the same channel.
It can even sync iPhones, providing an efficient way to integrate iPhone footage into professional shoots. The MAVIS professional camera app and Apogee’s MetaRecorder app (both for iPhone) are fully compatible with UltraSync BLUE. For the first time, there is a way to sync iPhones professionally, with sub-frame accuracy.

- MAVIS professional camera app
