About Sync-One 2

Sync-One2 accurately measures audio video delays / errors to help you quickly set-up your system. Trying to check any system manually wastes time and relies on guessing with trial and error adjustments. Sync-One2 is fast and accurate.

  • Post Production or film editing then sync is essential to the production process
  • Professional AV ensure your systems are installed correctly for your clients
  • Digital Cinema when installing or checking a cinema ensuring the sync is accurate makes for happy customers
  • Offer System Calibration services then complete the job by ensuring the sync is sorted too
If you are involved in any of the above then Sync-One2 is the tool you need.

Using a Sync-One2 takes away the guessing and saves time by accurately measuring the AV sync error. Displaying the error in milliseconds and/or frames, and if the audio leads or lags with reference to the video, all in real time. With this reading you can make an accurate adjustment to your system. No guessing. No time wasted. Sync-One2 makes it easy. A system can be checked and corrected in just a few minutes saving time and money.

Sync-One2 is the reference tool used by professionals around the world in Post Production, Digital Cinema, Professional system Calibrators, TV networks, and many more who rely on accurate AV sync.

As display and audio technologies move to ever more complex and higher resolution systems (4K, UHD, HDR, Dolby ATMOS etc.), the processing requirements can easily cause AV synchronisation issues. Each component change, software, or firmware update has the potential to alter the AV sync in a system. Watching content with poor AV sync is one of the most annoying and complained about problems.

Sync-One2 accurately measures the time span between an audio beep and video flash (e.g. a 2-pop / flash frame or similar, Sync-One2 specific test files are available for download), clearly displaying the delay and if the audio leads or lags with reference to the video. The error is displayed in milliseconds (1/1000th of a second) and if desired also in frames, in real time. A running average may also be enabled to average potentially 1000's of readings, again this is displayed in milliseconds or frames. Statistics are calculated on the most recent readings taken to help check overall system stability or drift, including the average and span of the set of readings.

Sync-One2 will work with any resolution or type of display, so is 4K / UHD / HDR ready, fine with LCD, OLED, Plasma, and Projectors.

  • Self calibrating to help reduce false readings from ambient light and noise
  • UPDATED in v2 Greater sensitivity for light and sound detection
  • NEW in v2 Additional support for testing in spaces with long reverberation times
  • Real time output in milliseconds / frames, a rolling real time average can also be displayed in milliseconds or frames
  • Fast startup, ready to take measurements in just a few seconds
