Tentacle Sync TE1 overview

  • 1Description

The compact, lightweight Tentacle Sync E Single Set includes a timecode generator, and a downloadable Tentacle Sync Studio software license (macOS). This successor to the Tentacle Sync features Bluetooth setup and monitoring, enabling you to easily view frame-accurate readings on your iOS or Android smartphone device. Use this updatable generator to extend Bluetooth-broadcast timecode to virtually any mobile device. The Sync E also features a locking clamp for its 3.5mm cable, ensuring compatibility with a wide array of devices without the need for an adapter.

The Tentacle E functions as a master clock, or to jam-sync to an external timecode source. Compatible with pro equipment, the Tentacle outputs SMPTE-12M-standard LTC timecode and supports all SMPTE TC rates. The Tentacle E's integrated, high-quality mic enables you to record both timecode and ambient sound simultaneously.

Each Tentacle E TC generator is powered by a built-in LiPo battery with a runtime lasting up to 35 hours. The battery charges via the unit's USB Type-C interface. A handy industrial-strength hook-and-loop surface is built into the back side of the box for secure mounting to your rig.

    Tentacle Sync TE1 reviews

    Sync E Timecode Generator with Bluetooth (Single Unit) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I need an extra star!!!! These are gems. So accurate and easy to set-up. If I ever read a review that says Tentacle-E is hard to use, that person should give up production. I'm sure the original box was great, but Bluetooth rocks. I was checking TC status on a long job, just opened up the app and there were my 4 boxes in perfect sync- after hour 9 of recording. I have a Denecke TC slate and it loved the Tentacle input, (the boxes work great as TC slaves from the Denecke). At $519 for 2, these are a bargain. Why can't all my gear work like a Tentacle?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Timecode simplified If you've been avoiding timecode because it seems complicated, well, you can relax. Tentacle Sync has you covered with a tiny box that is the new gold standard for multi-camera projects from small to large. No complicated dip switches to set - everything is set via a bluetooth connected app. The built-in batteries have never run out during even the longest shooting days.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Value Does what it says. Bought this single unit to give me the fifth unit needed to work multicam jobs with dedicated audio capture. Saves me time in post over audio only sync. Notable less expensive than other solutions. Good German engineering.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tentacle E Excellent for DSLR with no pro T.C connector . This unit will deliver TC on one track and reference. Audio on the other track
