Unleash your creativity.
UltraSync BLUE is simple, low-cost, and has the potential to synchronise any camera or sound recording device with Bluetooth® connectivity. There are no cables to worry about, giving you more freedom to shoot from creative angles with smaller, more mobile cameras. It can even sync iPhones.
UltraSync BLUE is our first product to synchronise timecode over Bluetooth® to compatible cameras, audio recorders and apps. Once connected, timecode is transmitted wirelessly from the UltraSync BLUE directly into the embedded media file of connected devices. By removing the restrictions of a wired connection, crews not only benefit from extra convenience, but also get even more versatility to choose how they sync. Use a single UltraSync BLUE unit to sync up to four recording devices shooting in close range over Bluetooth®. Or uniquely, also connect the UltraSync BLUE to a Timecode Systems long-range RF network and sync to other camera and audio recorders using Timecode Systems units on the same channel. A perfect combination of using two wireless technologies together to create a flexible and scalable sync system.
- A patented, timing protocol delivers unparalleled accuracy for the exchange of timecode over Bluetooth®.
- After first set-up, UltraSync BLUE automatically recognises your device.
- Use one UltraSync BLUE to feed frame-accurate timecode to up to four devices filming in close range (up to 10m) over Bluetooth®.
- Or, use long-range RF to sync multiple UltraSync BLUEs, or to sync to other Timecode Systems products.
- Timecode is embedded into the media file and automatically recognised by professional NLEs.

Can I sync my iPhone?
iPhones are a low-cost and effective way to capture video content and add additional camera angles to a shoot. But without accurate timecode, editing together footage from multiple iPhones takes a huge amount of time and effort because aligning the recordings so they are synchronised is an awkward, manual process.
UltraSync BLUE makes it simple to accurately combine, align and edit video and audio content recorded on iPhones into high quality, multicamera content.
