Timecode Systems Releases Solution For GoPro HERO6 Cameras

News Image
Timecode Systems has unveiled the SyncBac PRO for GoPro HERO6 Black cameras, which will enable professional users of the camera to shoot in sync.

Using the same timecode technology as the original SyncBac PRO, this release has been remodelled to work with the new GoPro HERO6 Black camera. By enabling the HERO6 to generate its own frame-accurate timecode, the SyncBac PRO creates the capability 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 GoPro cameras to timecode-sync with professional cameras and professional audio devices using Timecode Systems products for timecode. At the end of a shoot, the edit team receives SD cards with frame-accurate timecode embedded into the MP4 file. Eliminating the need to align content manually, SyncBac PRO makes it easier to transfer footage directly into the edit timeline for a more efficient postproduction process.

The SyncBac PRO is a custom-built product for the HERO6 camera. Working alongside GoPro has allowed Timecode Systems to connect directly with the camera's technology to develop a solution that makes the cameras more compatible with professional multicamera production methods.

Olivia Allen, Global Sales Manager, Timecode Systems, explained: "With SyncBac PRO generating timecode for GoPro cameras, there's no need to disrupt the creative flow of filming in order to slate cameras manually, so everyone on set or location can concentrate on capturing the innovative content that makes incredible television and films. Our system fits perfectly into a world where just about any camera angle can now be utilised. By significantly reducing time at the point of acquisition and in postproduction, SyncBac PRO makes GoPro cameras a genuinely low-cost way for professional production teams to capture additional, unique camera angles."

"With the HERO6, GoPro has added features that considerably advance camera performance and image quality, which increases the appeal of using GoPro cameras for professional filming for television and film," added Ashok Savdharia, Chief Technology Officer for Timecode Systems. "SyncBac PRO further enhances the camera's compatibility with professional production methods by adding the ability to integrate footage into a multicamera film and broadcast workflow in the same way as larger-scale professional cameras."

The SyncBac PRO for GoPro HERO6 Black is available now for pre-order and will start shipping this winter.
