Denecke TS-TCB Intelligent Hardware Clapper Slate, with integrated Timecode Systems wireless technology
To create the Denecke TS-TCB we teamed up with Denecke — the industry standard for electronic timecode slates — to incorporate all the advantages of our RF and WiFi networking into a solid trusted hardware clapper slate. The ultra-bright 7 segment display shows either the internal generator LTC, jammed LTC from the LEMO5 connector or the long range RF timecode sent from the Timecode Systems ‘master RF Clock’. The RF timecode is soft jammed twice a second to ensure that the large TC readout is continually in sync with all of the devices on set.
Zero drift. All day long. No more jamming at lunchtime.
User-friendly and Ergonomic
Originally based on the physical frame of a Denecke TS-3. The manual settings switches have been replaced with a single push and twist knob. It simply has a slot for the AA battery caddy, an antenna and a LEMO5 connector for External wired LTC IN and OUT. The new advancements to our ISM Band B:LINK network, allows the slate to report back its status, using the long range RF network, to the :wave or :pulse ‘master TX’ unit on set. This allows for remote monitoring of mode and battery status from the single app screen of MovieSlate 8 or the Timecode Buddy: app. Total confidence in the complete ‘sync setup’ across the set, truly a world’s first.
The bottom ultra-bright 800 LED matrix is not only used for all of the menu functions, but it allows for mirroring and syncing of metadata fields between, the Timecode Buddy: app and the MovieSlate 8 app (with Pro Features bundle subscription). The clap frame timecode is transmitted back from the TS-TCB into the app, either into a simple list on the free Timecode Buddy: app or part of the super elegant automated workflow offered by the MovieSlate 8 app.
