Wireless Timecode Synchronisation for the Portacapture X8

tascam pic portacapture atom 1

With the latest firmware update to v1.20, the TASCAM Portacapture X8 high-resolution multi-track recorder is now able to synchronise audio with Atomos devices using the optional TASCAM AK-BT1 Bluetooth dongle. The result is superior audio that enhances the visuals, fully synchronised for maximum flexibility throughout production. Syncing via timecode greatly helps the post-editing process by aligning files on a time basis, especially for projects using multiple cameras or recorders. Used as the timecode leader device, the Atomos Ultrasync Blue is an easy-to-use, low-cost, wireless timecode adapter that can synchronise any compatible camera and the Portacapture X8 / AK-BT1 using Atomos AirGlu™ connectivity. With wireless Bluetooth transmission up to 30 meters for as many as six devices, the combined system provides greater freedom to shoot from creative angles using smaller, more mobile cameras.
