The Denecke TS-TCB combines the convenience and functionality of a traditional solid hardware timecode slate with accurate RF-locked readout, transmission of stick closing timecode, and a second ultrabright LED dot matrix display to mirror metadata from iOS applications. That means that production teams can use a real hardware slate with two-way network communication enabled by Timecode Buddy wireless protocols.
The top ultra bright 7 segment display shows either the internal generator LTC, jammed LTC from the LEMO5 connector or the long range RF timecode sent from the Timecode Buddy/Systems master RF Clock.The RF timecode is soft jammed to ensure that the large TC readout is continually in sync with all of the Timecode Buddy devices on set, with zero drift.
The bottom ultra bright 800 LED matrix is not only used for all of the menus functions, but it allows for mirroring and syncing of metadata fields between the Timecode Buddy: app and the MovieSlate 8 app with Pro Features bundle subscription.
User-friendly features: Based on the physical frame of a Denecke TS-3 . The manual settings switches have been replaced with a single push and twist knob. It simply has a slot for the AA battery caddy, an antenna and a LEMO5 connector for external wired LTC IN and OUT, and external power.
