Timecode Systems Ships SyncBac
PRO For GoPro HERO6
T

imecode
Systems
Limited
is shipping its SyncBac PRO
embedded timecode sync solution for
GoPro HERO6 Black action cameras.
Since first launching the SyncBac
PRO range in 2016, Timecode Systems'
wireless sync solution for GoPro action
cameras has been enthusiastically
adopted by film and television crews
around the world.
From high-action productions such
as The Grand Tour and Gold Rush, to
self-shot shows such as The Island
with Bear Grylls, to fly-on-the-wall
programmes such as Hunted and
Inside the Ambulance, the SyncBac
PRO integrates GoPro cameras
effortlessly into broadcast production
workflows.
"We've worked closely with a number
of professional production teams
that have adopted the SyncBac PRO
for GoPro shoots, and what we're
consistently hearing is complete
amazement at just how much time it
is saving them when the footage gets

to the edit suite," said
Paul Scurrell, CEO of
Timecode
Systems.
"It's not a few hours
saved; it's often days,
even weeks of edit
time. The feedback
we're getting from users
suggests around 85%
of
post-production
time can be cut by
using our GoPro
sync solution rather
than manually syncing non-timecoded
GoPro media. The new SyncBac
PRO now brings the same time- and
cost-savings to productions as users
update their kits to add GoPro HERO6
cameras."
GoPros
allow
professional,
multicamera film crews to capture
authentic point-of-view shots and
additional unique angles that couldn't
be achieved using more traditional
broadcast cameras. However, GoPro
cameras are built for the consumer

Timecode Systems'
Sync Bac With-Go-Pro

first and foremost, so the HERO line
of cameras doesn't support timecode
out of the box. If footage is not
timecoded, edit teams can spend days
manually searching and lining up shots
to sync with each other and with any
separately recorded audio.
By enabling the HERO6 to generate
its own frame-accurate timecode,
the SyncBac PRO creates the ability
to timecode-sync multiple GoPro
cameras wirelessly over long-range

RF. If GoPro cameras are being
used as part of a wider professional
multicamera shoot, SyncBac PRO also
allows them to timecode-sync with
professional cameras and professional
audio devices using Timecode Systems
products for timecode.
"The new SyncBac PRO
for GoPro HERO6 allows
production
companies
to take full advantage
of new features of the
camera, such as advanced
image stabilisation and
new
resolutions
like
4K60, without adding
days of additional edit time
to a show's budget," Scurrell said.
"Coming from a television production
background, I'm always so excited to
see any technical solution being used
that allows genuine cost and time
savings - putting 'more money on the
screen,' as we used to say, rather than
wasting resources on pointless manual
edit tasks."
SyncBac PRO remains the only
timecode generator and sync solution
that works with GoPro cameras.

Corpus Talks Over-The-Top
M

illennials are changing the
dynamics of video consumption
by preferring their handheld devices to
conventional TV viewing.
With improving infrastructure and
Internet penetration in India, the
technology of delivering seamless
video over-the-top (OTT) is also
evolving.
Corpus Media Labs, a video
technology
enabler,
specialises
into providing end-to-end wireline
and wireless OTT platform across
multi-screens.
According to a report, 72% of the
time spent by a smartphone user is
on watching video and it is estimated
that India will cross 500 million
smart phone users by 2017. This

generation wants their content to be
like instant noodles - spicy, instant
and on-demand. They expect an apt
search result and quick discovery of
their favourite content with more
personalised
recommendations.
Besides new content, millennials also
look for a seamless video quality and
intuitive user experience on their OTT
platform.
Dave Maan, COO of Corpus Media
Labs, believes that OTT shouldn't just
be an alternative to broadcast and
cable - it needs to be an improvement.
In addition to matching broadcast
and cable video quality, it needs to
offer viewers what broadcast and
cable can't, things like interactivity,
personalised advertising, engaging

Content delivery:
Streaming on Demand

Growing handheld
device usage

user interfaces, and access anytime,
anywhere.
"Augmented perceptual quality
of the videos, search and discovery
of
the
content,
personalised
recommendations are the most crucial
elements for user experience," says
Maan.
Corpus Media Labs has developed
a robust B2B OTT platform, called
VideoCorpus, which can deliver Live
TV, Video on Demand (VoD), Music on
Demand (MoD), 4K content, Catch-up

TV across multiple screens.
Corpus Smart Analytics collects over
50 data points on user's behaviour
and their consumption patterns and
bring meaningful statistics for driving
marketing and promotion strategy of
the contents on the OTT platform.
After their success in wireline and
wireless platforms, Corpus has now
entered "Streaming on Wheels" which
is focused on providing Content on
Demand (CoD) on public transports like
buses and railways.
