With the Go Pro now compatible with the entire Timecode Systems range of wireless timecode and metadata products, there was an opportunity to add the functionality to wirelessly control and monitor Go Pros using the BLINK Hub app.
Wireless monitoring & control When connected to the BLINK Hub dashboard via a :pulse, Sync Bac PRO users can remotely control and monitor multiple Go Pros from any smartphone (i OS or Android), tablet, or Mac® computer.
The BLINK RF protocol is how Timecode Systems’ products communicate with each other and how timecode, metadata and control commands travel between units.
Timecode sync with pro cameras & pro audio devices When docked with a Sync Bac PRO, Go Pro HERO4 Black and Silver cameras integrate perfectly into a Timecode Systems production workflow.
Timecode sync multiple Go Pros Attach a Sync Bac PRO to every unit and timecode sync multiple HERO4 Black and Silver units via long range wireless BLINK RF.
Simply make one Go Pro the master unit and use the Sync Bac PRO to timecode sync unlimited Go Pro slaves.
As a sounding board for the broadcast industry’s workflow issues and ideals, the team was frequently fielding enquiries from productions struggling to timecode sync Go Pro footage.
Visual slating of these cameras with a digislate was a workaround but not the seamless solution productions craved.
This, among other things, unlocks the capability to adjust camera settings and record start/stop remotely – a great way to maximize a Go Pro’s battery life when it’s gear-mounted or not easily accessible.
It’s a dilemma that’s troubled productions ever since they first started using the popular non-timecoded wearable cameras in professional film and television.
So Timecode Systems developed the Sync Bac Pro, working closely with Go Pro to create a customized product that enables the HERO4 to timecode sync in the same way as traditional film and broadcast equipment.
But Timecode Systems didn’t stop once they’d cracked timecode sync.
