Timecode Systems at the 2015 NAB Show:
Worldwide Launch of the Denecke TS-TCB Slate
Combining the convenience and functionality of a digislate with the timeless appeal of a clapper board, the new Denecke TS-TCB slate offers a twist on tradition that will satisfy the professional preferences of any production team. The compact, high-spec intelligent hardware clapper slate is the result of the combined brainpower of Denecke and Timecode Systems.
While many production teams appreciate the capabilities of an iPad(R) digislate, some still favour a real slate and demand the “clap” that marks the start of a take. Timecode Systems recognised this and saw an opportunity to join forces with established slate manufacturer Denecke to integrate the functionally of the Timecode Buddy :wifi master into the solid, dependable Denecke TS-3 slate. Integration into the MovieSlate app also enables an intelligent and automated logging tool. The Denecke TS-TCB slate is available now.
