Timecode Systems Unveils VR Sync Solution

News Image
At NAB Show 2017, Timecode Systems will unveil its VR Sync solution.

With the use of virtual reality (VR) increasing in use by video production companies, advertising agencies, and broadcast networks, integrating 360-degree content into professional production workflows has been time-consuming due to the manual process of synchronising the multiple streams of non-timecoded footage. The main challenge of using 360-degree content more in television is being able to capture and produce VR content to the same standards, and with the same efficiency, as mainstream multicamera filming methods. At NAB, Timecode Systems will demonstrate how SyncBac PRO and the BLINK Hub app can be combined to offer a timecode synchronisation solution for GoPro cameras in VR rigs.

Also on display at the event will be an update to the company's BLINK Hub app which includes a customised virtual reality feature that makes it simple to treat multiple GoPro cameras in a rig as one. Whether there are six or 24 cameras in a spherical array, this solution takes the guesswork out of VR filming by making it easy to view, monitor, and control every camera centrally from a single screen on any smartphone, tablet, or Mac.

At the centre of Timecode Systems' booth at NAB 2017, a NASCAR race car will be in place, representing the launch of a project between the company and Joe Gibbs Racing. Members of the pit crew from the NASCAR team will join Timecode Systems to show the flexibility of application of the company's system through a configuration of the SyncBac PRO and the BLINK Hub app created for the 2017 race season. The primary goal of the project was to use the products for accurate video analysis, but by using Timecode Systems' Ethernet and Wi-Fi software development kits, Joe Gibbs Racing has been able to use the system to integrate the same accurate timecode with biometric and general metadata.

Paul Scurrell, CEO, Timecode Systems, said: "For Timecode Systems, 2017 is all about virtual reality (VR) and bringing the increased efficiency and cost savings we've already delivered to multicamera production teams to 360-degree filmmakers. When we launched SyncBac PRO, we gave production teams a way to integrate GoPro footage seamlessly into professional production workflows. Now we're looking to do the same for VR and, in doing so, significantly increase the opportunity to use 360-degree filming in professional film and broadcast productions."
