-- Indie filmmakers, documentarians, major studios and wedding videographers struggle to keep sound and picture together. Timecode helps, but has traditionally required specialized expertise. Now cognitive scientist and former Tesla engineer Ari Krupnik wants to make sync a non-issue. The crowdfunding campaign for DISH.TC, a zero-configuration timecode generator, has gone live at HYPERLINK https://www.kickstarter.com/
One early supporter is director Glenn Ficarra (neXt, Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, Focus). The Kickstarter page quotes him as saying of DISH.TC, "I love how simple it all is."
Ari explains: "When I first started working in film, I thought--how hard can sync be? Then I saw what they saw: rows and rows of cryptic switches. I decided to make the experience more humane." DISH.TC receives radio time signals from satellites in orbit. It then converts them to industry-standard SMPTE LTC timecode. There is no configuration. There is no need for jam-syncing. There is no drift between devices.
DISH.TC works with any size camera, from DSLRs and mirrorless to REDs and ARRIs, including cameras without dedicated timecode input. Early-bird Kickstarter prices start at $169. (Retail projected at $260) To find out more about this revolutionary technology, some of the controversies it has sparked, and what industry veterans are saying about it, head to
