SYNC OVER BLUETOOTH

The Tentacle SYNC E mk2 uses Bluetooth low energy. With Bluetooth LE you simply hold your phone close to your Tentacles to link it with your app. This new Bluetooth technology offers battery life up to 35 hours – no matter if you use it for setup, syncing or monitoring your devices.

SYNCING TIMECODE TO ANY DEVICE FOR ANY VIDEO SHOOTING

The greatest feature of the Tentacle SYNC E mk2 is its ability to interface with practically any camera. Regardless if your camera has a dedicated time code input or just an audio input, the SYNC E can deliver.

Tentacles don’t have a built-in display – and that’s just how we like it. The best user interface is your phone. Use it to monitor and set up your Tentacle SYNC E with a frame-accurate timecode display, without the need for any additional expensive equipment.

Accuracy. Tentacle’s sync algorithms allow you to monitor your Octopodes with frame accuracy via the Tentacle Sync app. Future-proof. Every Sync E acts as a master and broadcasts timecode independently via Bluetooth. Almost every mobile device can make use of this timecode, opening up a whole world of seamless connectivity sync networks without needing any new
technology – straight out of the box.

MORE THAN SCRATCHING THE SURFACE – AN EXCELLENT INTERNAL MICROPHONE

Connecting timecode equipment to the mic input of a DSLR-type camera cuts off the internal audio. Tentacle SYNC E is the only solution available with a high-quality built-in ‘scratch’ mic. Record both timecode and ambient sound simultaneously with just one single device.

YOU GOOD-LOCKING CLAMP YOU – KNOWING YOUR CONNECTOR IS SECURE

Who wants to buy extra non-standard and unusual cables or connectors? Probably nobody. At least we don‘t. That‘s why we decided to add a clamp to the Tentacle SYNC E, making the connector lockable. And to make things even easier, we just used a 3.5mm mini jack – without a doubt the most common and versatile connector in the world. It’s all designed around you, not us.

A SIMPLIFIED POST PROCESS…

The Tentacle SYNC E mk2 comes with renowned Tentacle Sync Studio Software (available for macOS). This software offers fast and easy timecode synchronization of your audio and video footage. Furthermore, the SYNC E mk2 combined with the Tentacle TRACK  E timecode audio recorder make a good team for any video shooting from YouTube and wedding applications to multi-cam setups and post-production syncing tasks.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE TENTACLE SYNC E & THE SYNC E MK2?

The Tentacle SYNC E mk2 timecode generator is based on the well-known SYNC E. Now it’s ready for the future with Bluetooth 5.0 and improved battery management.
