Atomos ULTRASYNC BLUE Overview

Wirelessly sync timecode using Bluetooth between your cameras, audio recorders, smartphones, and other supported devices with the UltraSync BLUE Wireless Timecode Sync from Atomos. The UltraSync BLUE is a compact unit that provides timecode sync and can pair each source with the Atomos AtomX SYNC for viewing on the Ninja V monitor.

The BLUE provides frame-accurate timecode to up to six compatible Bluetooth devices up to 32.8' away, and it auto-detects and pairs with supported devices.

Atomos ULTRASYNC BLUE Reviews

Some foibles and limitations

By David
Rated 4 out of 5
Date: 2022-09-28

If you need an inexpensive time code generator, then this is it, if you can accept the limitations. First, when I received it, it would not connect to the devices or even its own application. Turns out a factory reset solved the problem, but it took several troubleshooting steps to figure this out. Second, it has no memory, so if you are setting the timecode to be local to your time zone, date, and time, you must reset it after every restart. Again, not hard to do, but if you forget, your timestamps will be out of whack. I have not let it run down, so I cannot tell you the longevity, but after a half an hour, it seemed to be lower that I would have expected power-wise. That being said, it has a two step power off that means you can drop it in your pocket and let it tick away while you get on with your job and not worry about it accidentally switching off. If you are going to use it in the field, you will want a long life battery and USB-C cable to keep it going.

One answer in the Q&A says it can connect to only 1 at a time. The product description advertises it can connect and support up to 6 devices. This is confusing. Can someone clarify? I'm hoping to sync time code across three BMPCC4K cameras and three Zoom F2-BT audio recorders. Will this work?
Asked by: john
Hello John, The answer is 6, and thats because it is the limitation of BT. If you use the Ultrasync One, you can do much more because of the RF technology.

Can this be connected to a Red DSMC2 Gemini? I want to use the Zoom F3 Audio Recorder, but it is only Bluetooth.
Asked by: Thomas
Typically, the Atomos UltraSync BLUE Wireless Timecode Sync for AtomX SYNC and Ninja V (B&H# ATOMSYBL01US) would be connected not to the camera but to an external recorder such as a Ninja V with the Atomos AtomX SYNC (B&H# ATOMXSYNC1) addition for recording the video as it does not communicate directly with the camera. An example of a compatible device with a connection option to a camera would be the Atomos UltraSync ONE RF Timecode Sync for AtomX Sync and Ninja V (B&H# ATOMSYON01US): https://bhpho.to/3lgMUOW

Asked by: Tomer
We cannot comment as to why there are no reviews for this product, other than it is fairly new and that people are often more inclined to post reviews when they're not necessarily satisfied with a certain product. We can, however, report that we have not received any negative user feedback and no returns have been made with the specific complaint that the product did not work according to spec. Having said that, please note that this product is designed to specifically sync with AtomX SYNC and Ninja V.

Asked by: Evan
Hello Evan, this will become the "master" or "slave" TC as long as the GPH9 has bluetooth. If not, then you may have to get the Ultrasync ONE.
