The Tentacle is a stripped-down time code generator, designed to be accurate, small, lightweight, smart and easy-to-use. The versatile time code output allows you to connect Tentacles to almost any kind of camera or recorder, from a DSLR to an ARRI Alexa. Tentacles stay frame-accurate for 24 hours and the built-in rechargable battery lasts for up to 40 hours.
The Tentacle can be synched either from another Tentacle working as master clock or from an external time code generator, such as your audio recorder, and then passed to the camera department. The compact form-factor with integrated hook surface is suitable for easy attachment to nearly any camera. (Cable for Tentacle to Tentacle connection is included; time code cables for other devices sold seperately or may be custom-ordered.)
The free time code syncing software for OSX (min. OS X 10.9) automatically synchronizes audio and video and can be downloaded from the Tentacle Sync website. The Tentacle unit acts as a dongle to unlock the export features. Sycnhing can also be done with your preferred editing system.
