Timecode Systems Launches 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. Timecode Systems’ latest firmware upgrade integrates the B:LINK Hub, the company’s new production dashboard and device control app, into both its :pulse and :wave products. At Cine Gear Expo 2016, Timecode Systems will 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(R), or PC over Wi-Fi, or through a wired Ethernet connection into the :pulse.

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(R) 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.
