TCS @ Cine Gear Expo 2016
The Studios at Paramount
Preparations are in full swing at Timecode Systems HQ for this year’s Cine Gear Expo in Hollywood. Here’s a quick run down of what you can expect to see from us on booth 98D. If you’re heading to the show, please drop by for a demonstration and to chat timecode, sync and wireless workflows.
Summer launch of SyncBac PRO
At Cine Gear Expo, we’ll be demonstrating how our latest solution seamlessly integrates the popular action cameras into the professional film and television production workflow. Launched in April 2016, SyncBac PRO has already won a 2016 IABM Game Changer Award and a position on GoPro’s new ‘Works with GoPro’ program. We’ll be releasing our latest product for sale this summer.
Whether shooting with an army of GoPro® cameras, combining GoPro units with traditional large-scale cameras and separate audio, or using multiple HERO4® cameras to capture 360° content on a complex VR rig, SyncBac PRO users can timecode sync GoPro footage in seconds.
Offering a highly attractive ‘clip on and go’ solution to the time-consuming problem of syncing GoPro footage, the SyncBac PRO is proving popular with pre-orders currently being taken via www.syncbac.com.
Place your pre-order and make sure there’s a new SyncBac PRO with your name on it.
Launch of multiplatform B:LINK Hub app
In a multicamera or VR environment, having central control of all of the timecode, camera, and audio devices on set considerably streamlines the workflow. Our forthcmoing firmware upgrade (coming very soon) integrates the B:LINK Hub, our new production dashboard and device control app, into both our :pulse and :wave products.
At Cine Gear Expo 2016, we’ll be demonstrating how this new functionality offers the potential to save time and money at the point of shooting and in post-production.
The B:LINK Hub uses long-range B:LINK RF to power a real-time dashboard displaying all Timecode Systems units and compatible cameras and audio devices on set, centrally on one screen. This includes any GoPro systems docked with a SyncBac PRO. From here, users have advanced capability to remotely control not only Timecode Systems devices, but also any compatible cameras and audio devices to which they are connected. Users can conveniently hit record, pause the action, monitor battery levels, and keep a close eye on sync status from a simple dashboard accessed from the web browser of any smartphone (iOS or Android), tablet, Mac®, or PC over Wi-Fi, or through a wired Ethernet connection into the :pulse.
Find out more about the B:LINK Hub app.
New features enhance capability of the :pulse
The :pulse was originally developed to work as a partner to the ARRI Alexa camera, offering timecode and metadata functions and full wireless control of the camera from an iPad® for the first time. The :pulse now supports an ever-increasing number of professional cameras, from the Canon C300 to the GoPro HERO4 action camera.
At Cine Gear Expo 2016, Timecode Systems will be demonstrating these exciting new collaborations and other advanced features that will further cement this product as a powerful hub not only for timecode and metadata exchange, but also for wireless control of devices on multicamera film shoots using the new B:LINK Hub.
