Can I sync this with my RED DSMC2? If so what cables?
Asked by: Jens
We recommend that you do not have a slate attached to your camera permanently. You will need a DSMC2 Base Expander, DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander, DSMC3 Jetpack Expander, DSMC2 Jetpack-SDI Expander, or DSMC2 REDVOLT Expander. You will need a RED DIGITAL CINEMA 3BNC-to-00B Sync Cable as well. Here is a link to compatible timecode devices approved by RED: http://docs.red.com/955-0171_v7.0/DSMC2HELIUMOperationGuide/Content/8_TC_Gen_Multi/Devices_Timecode.htm

how can I jam the slate to my Canon c700? do I need a time code generator? Thanks
Asked by: RekDi
I don't see an option or any description for an output on the Denecke TS-C. I think you might need a Timecode Generator like a Denecke JB-1 (my favorite) or Denecke SB-4. There are other brands like Ambient, Tentacle, and a couple other brands. Just make sure you got the right cable!

Do you need another device to wirelessly sync this to a camera like the Arri Amira?
Asked by: Jason
Timecode generators with wireless communication can be paired with the Denecke TS-C Compact Timecode Slate (Color Clapper, EL Backlit) and camera for sync, such as from Tentacle Sync and those from Ambient. The Denecke TS-TCB offers wifi communication with timecode buddy products.
