Timecode Systems at the 2017 NAB Show

Timecode Systems is heading to Las Vegas with new products, enhanced features, and some exciting updates to its BLINK Hub app that together demonstrate how its solutions combine to deliver significant time and cost savings throughout the production process, from acquisition through to postproduction. This year the company will be showcasing not only how its system streamlines multicamera production workflows, but also how it now offers those same efficiency benefits to virtual reality filmmakers.

New Virtual Reality Sync Solution Gives 360-Degree Filming a Professional Workflow

Over the past few years, more and more video production companies, advertising agencies, and broadcast networks have started experimenting with virtual reality (VR) filming, but 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 the 2017 NAB Show, Timecode Systems will unveil how SyncBac PRO and the BLINK Hub app can be combined to offer a timecode synchronization solution for GoPro cameras in VR rigs.

BLINK Hub App Enables Remote Control of Virtual Reality Rigs From a Tablet

A new update to the BLINK Hub app will include a highly 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.

Joe Gibbs Racing Takes the Spotlight on Timecode Systems Booth

A NASCAR race car will be the centrepiece of Timecode Systems' 2017 booth. This represents the launch of an exciting project between the company and Joe Gibbs Racing. Members of the pit crew from the leading NASCAR team will join Timecode Systems at the 2017 NAB Show to show delegates the flexibility and breadth of application of the company's system through a unique 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 highly accurate video analysis, but by utilizing Timecode Systems' Ethernet and Wi-Fi software development kits, Joe Gibbs Racing has been able to go even further, using the system to integrate the same accurate timecode with biometric and general metadata.
