Can you timecode sync a GoPro? Yes.
Whether mounted for an explosive feature film action sequence or rigged to capture multiple perspectives for a documentary of an expedition, dock your HERO4 with a SyncBac PRO to timecode sync GoPro footage and seamlessly integrate it into a professional production workflow.
Timecode sync for GoPro - The SyncBac PRO is a wireless embedded timecode sync solution for GoPro cameras that create a professional standard wearable camera that timecode syncs not only with other GoPros, but also any professional video and audio equipment. Simply clip it to the back of a GoPro to enable HERO4 cameras to generate their own frame-accurate timecode, producing a timecoded MP4 file at source.
SyncBac Pro Advantages
- Wireless Workflows - The SyncBac PRO seamlessly integrates GoPros into a professional production workflow when used in conjunction with Timecode Systems wireless timecode and metadata technology.
- Clip & Go - The SyncBac PRO is a customized solution for GoPro. Simply clip it to the back of the HERO4 via the HeroBus™ 30 pin port. No external connectors required. This keeps the GoPro as small and light as possible and means it’s fully compatible with HERO4 standard BacPac backdoor housings.
- Seamless Sync - Upload GoPro footage into your chosen editing package (AVID Media Composer, Apple Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere PRO are all compatible) and treat it the same as a file from a traditional film or broadcast camera. Use as an MP4 or transcode to Apple ProRes or Avid DNxHD – the timecode remains stable.
- Wireless Control - Remotely control and monitor multiple GoPros from any smartphone (iOS or Android), tablet, Mac® or PC by connecting the SyncBac PRO to the B:LINK Hub dashboard. This (among other things) allows you to adjust camera settings and record start/stop remotely - a great way to maximize a GoPro’s battery life when it’s gear-mounted.
The SyncBac PRO workflow in action
With the introduction of the SyncBac PRO, the hours in postproduction spent manually lining up each GoPro shot to sync with other camera footage and recorded audio could become a laborious chore of the past.
SyncBac PRO is a clip-on, wireless, embedded timecode sync solution for GoPro’s HERO4 Black and Silver cameras. It's also among the first accessories to be verified by the new ‘Works with GoPro’ initiative. HERO4 cameras with the SyncBac PRO attached can now generate embedded timecode at source, which is then stamped on the camera’s MP4 file. This allows GoPro footage to be drawn into an edit workflow in the same way as any other professional camera. This video shows this process in action.
