Tentacle Sync Timecode Generator

Product Gallery


Tentacles are basically timecode generators completely stripped-down to what you really need: They are accurate, small, lightweight, smart and easy to use devices. The versatile timecode output of Tentacle will allow you to connect Tentacles to nearly every kind of camera or recorder. From a DSLR to an ARRI Alexa, Tentacle works with them. Once connected, you can leave Tentacles on your equipment for the whole day because Tentacles stay frame-accurate for 24 hours and the built-in battery lasts for up to 40 hours.

The Tentacle will help you to accelerate your syncing workflow from shooting to post-production.
