A multi-functional timecode and metadata hub

 The compact size and apparent simplicity of the Timecode Buddy :pulse  is deceiving. It’s actually our most advanced and feature-packed piece of timecode technology yet. Yes, beyond the diminutive aluminum casing lies unrivalled timecode and metadata innovation, presenting a camera accessory that offers a single box solution to streamlining production workflows. Use the Timecode Buddy :pulse to generate Timecode Buddy’s signature brand of super accurate timecode and genlock, sync with zero drift and use the integrated WiFi to share all of this information to multiple iPads. But we didn’t stop there. The Timecode Buddy :pulse was designed to be the perfect partner to the ARRI Alexa, offering users full wireless camera control and status monitoring, access to full metadata and lens motor control conveniently from an iPad or iDevice.
Special features To create the Timecode Buddy :pulse, we built on the proven capability of the:wifi master. These features make the Timecode Buddy :pulse unique. 3D-friendly The :pulse has a built in Ethernet/WiFi bridge plus a two port Ethernet switch. So you can attach two cameras to one :pulse for 3D rigs. Ethernet accessories The :pulse can also use the second Ethernet port to connect a camera accessory in addition to the camera inself; such as lens motor controller or proxy recorder. Acting as another Wifi to Ethernet bridge. Full wireless camera control The :pulse is designed to support the latest camera protocols including ETHERNET, LANC, USB and SERIAL communications ports. Used in conjunction with the new free to download iOS Timecode Buddy: pulse app or the MovieSlate app (with the ARRI Alexa plug-in), our newest Buddy gives ARRI Alexa users full wireless camera control and status monitoring, access to full metadata and lens motor control conveniently from an iPad.User-friendly features First of all, it’s small (94mm x 67mm x 23mm to be exact). It also has a high resolution blue OLED display, flexible mounting methods, USB2.0 Host or USB2.0 Device. Multiple powering options; 9-36V DC LEMO2, 5V USB and PoE on the RJ45 connector. The  large capacity Li-Polymer internal battery is constantly charged from any of these inputs and designed to run the unit for at least 5 hours without external power present. On an ARRI Alexa simply connect a single cable for Ethernet/Power plus a Timecode cable and you’re good to go. Zero drift between units The LTC and GENLOCK generator is soft jammed twice a second via a long-range robust ISM band RF datalink for zero drift between units.
