The MovieSlate iOS app from PureBlend Software, and the MovieRecorder and Multicam Logger solutions for Mac from Softron, are the latest applications to adopt Timecode Systems’ patented Bluetooth timing protocol. Timecode Systems has extended the footprint of its UltraSync BLUE solution by adding the power of its timecode-over-Bluetooth technology to multi-camera logging, reporting, and collaborative editing processes.”We started with the MAVIS and Apogee MetaRecorder apps for iOS, and adding the iOS and macOS solutions from Softron and PureBlend invites two new and respected professional software products into the UltraSync BLUE ecosystem,” said Paul Scurrell, CEO, Timecode Systems Limited.
The efficiency of a video production workflow is driven by how effectively metadata is captured and managed, from acquisition to edit. UltraSync BLUE is the first sync product to transmit timecode to a connected recording device or software application over Bluetooth with sub-frame accuracy. With this metadata embedded into files ahead of ingest, logging notes are accurate, and sifting through hours of video and audio in post-production becomes a simpler task. This leads to time and cost savings and, with less time spent aligning and searching content, the edit team can focus on using the best content more creatively.
“Production teams are under pressure to turn around content quicker than ever; our software solutions are designed to help speed up the video production process, and generally make it a lot easier to manage,” said Pierre Chevalier, technical director, Softron. “Synced timecode has been an essential component of MovieSlate’s metadata. We think our customers will love how fast and easy it is to receive frame-accurate timecode wirelessly via Bluetooth, from the tiny, portable UltraSync BLUE,” said Cliff Joyce, CEO, PureBlend Software.
