It's certainly possible that some of the DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors are better than others... 

The UltraSync One seems to have the DIN connectors secured to the housing with nuts, which looks a little more robust. AJA does this with their products as well, and it's definitely better (only destroyed one connector attached this way, as opposed to several of the BMD ones).

But the bigger issue is a basic physics problem. The DIN 1.0/2.3 connectors are small, thin, and stick out from the device....

Thanks Dave. It was my experience with AJA connectors frequently sitting on backplanes (good) vs BMD connectors stuck right on the PCBs (less good) that got me thinking.... 

I hear you about the tiny size of the 1.0/2.3 connectors. I'm not a fan either. Hopefully someone at NAB (or here) can directly ask Timecode Systems what their thinking is behind using these connectors and if they're thinking of offering versions with BNC, Lemo, or something. The UltraSync One box seems cool... would love to have more confidence that it'll hold up in a rough-and-tumble field...

So anyone at NAB had a chance to chat with TCS about their new stuff and the connectors?

That's why they have that battery which lasts 4.5 hours

4.5hrs for lunch? I doubt I'd be capable of working after that long ;-)

 

Is it me, or did I notice that Vitec are including Timecode Systems products in their publicity for various of 'their' brands? This, to me, would suggest that they may have bought TCS?

I'm not sure if anyone is aware but there is a NAB show exlusive offer where you can get get two of the new UltraSync ONE units and a Wave for just £699+VAT/ $915 / €829. Here is the link to get the offer if anyone is interested: http://www.timecodesystems.com/ultrasync-one-nab-bundle/

Considering that here in the UK the Wave alone is around £600+VAT this offer is amazing.

Not seeing any 4 pin lemos. Poor RED...

I think you would just have camera dept provide the sync cable and adapt to the BNCs.

 

PS.. still would rather buy this product with BNCs on the box. But I'll try to stop beating the dead horse.

That would be a Y - cable: TC and genlock  DINs into 4 pin Sync socket - probably that's why not. But,  you can use the 200,- 3 BNC split cable from RED.
