This makes it a no go for me.  The size is incredible but I have a Major, Major, Major client that uses the cross jam work flow.  The workaround is to set the Tentacle to Master and jam the recorder, Sound Devices recorders will cross jam.  But may times the master clock is a Denecke GR-1 or 2 set at the recorder frame rate and the sync box has to cross jam.   Same issue with Timecode Systems equipment.  for all other clients its a non issue.  Seems like Ambient, Mozegear, and Denecke have it right.  Its a dying workflow but cross jamming should still be integrated.  Because of this I own Timecode systems equipment, Denecke boxes, and Zaxcom ERX's.  There are too many workflows out there!!!  Its just sync...

Because some workflows mandate camera @ 23.98 and audio @ 29.97, or 29.97DF (for instance).  It's down to how a particular sequence of post rigs or facilities are set up.  It's not so common any more (I recall a lot of it in the early days of tape HD video), and I usually try to find out exactly why a production wants to work this way, like is it really necessary, because it is kind of wacko?
