Tentacle Sync Timecode Single Unit
The single Tentacle Sync Timecode unit is ideal If you already own a sound-recorder with a build-in timecode-generator (e.g Sound Devices). In this case you synchronize your Tentacle via JamSync from your recorder with an optional adaptor cable (e.g. LEMO to Tentacle).
The super-small and user-friendly timecode generator can be attached to nearly any camera. The free included timecode syncing software for OSX will help you to accelerate your syncing workflow form shooting to post-production.
