Denecke TS-C overview

  • 1Description

The Denecke TS-C is a compact full featured smart slate, capable of reading, generating and displaying SMPTE/EBU time code. Its new compact size makes the TS-C ideal for documentary work, insert shots, or anywhere a big slate is too cumbersome. The TS-C jams to all standard frame rates, including 23.976 for HD.

Flash Microprocessor
A 16 Bit Flash Microprocessor produces greater accuracy and allows for future firmware upgrades.
This unit features a colored clapper.
Voltage Readout
A battery voltage readout and low battery warning keep the user informed.
Access Door
A small sliding door allows quick access to controls and battery pack.
Error Warning
A Sync Error warning lets the user know different frame rates are being input.
EL Backlit
The EL Backlit Display is particularly useful during night shoots and on dimly lit stages.
The incoming frame rate is read and the reader automatically sets to that frame rate.
The high stability Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator ensures low drift and is standard on the TS-3.

    Denecke TS-C reviews

    TS-C Compact Time Code Slate - Color Clapper, EL Backlit is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must have for Sound Mixers If your audio recorder gives out timecode (which is worth every penny), then you are also going to need a smart slate. A smart slate is able to connect to your sound recorder and sync with timecode. This way, when the slate is shown in front of the camera before a take, the recorder's and slate's timecode will be in sync. This will help a lot in post production so that you or your editor can line up the video & audio takes of the corresponding production shoot without error. I prefer the TS-C as it is the smaller more compact version of the TS-3.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice slate... I needed a smart TC slate that works seamlessly with my Tentacle-E TC boxes. The TS-C was the slate I needed. This is an expensive slate that needs to be treated like a lens. The first day on set the AD put the slate on a dirty table on it's face! It put a dimple on the red display area! My only complaint is that the plastic face scratches very easily and not meant for a crew member who can't respect gear! It is very easy to use and worked great with Tentacle-E sync boxes. The clock did not drift a single frame after 11 hours of use. Also, it takes 6 AA battery, a set of lithium batteries were still strong after 4 days of continued use- including the backlight being on. Would recommend, but save your pennies for this one.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Slate! I've never purchased a slate before, although I've used several over the years, so I was a bit nervous spending this kind of money, but I have to say that everything promised in the info about it was correct..! Slate worked perfectly, held the code ALL DAY, and the backlit section is a godsend for the camera crew If you're serious about your film making, I would highly suggest investing in this slate, you won't regret it!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Denecke TS-C, great little slate! I primarily use this slate for documentary and commercial work.It is particularly useful for hanging on the front of your run bag. It is considerably less weight than the TS-2 or 3 and may not be dropped as often by an AC. :-)The multi-stage brightness and backlight are a really nice improvement over older slates.I highly recommend this slate as an all-around tool if you only want to have one in your arsenal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Compact Slate! It's no surprise that this is a great piece of gear. The sync is rock solid, and despite its smaller size, it seems as well constructed as all of the other Denecke stuff.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything I thought it should be Build quality is top notch. It’s everything I thought this should be for the cost. Easily the best slate I’ve used or owned so far.
