Optimised for the sound department 

Designed to be the perfect companion for your sound mixer, the:wave offers advanced capability to sync, log and control.

First and foremost, the :wave is a highly accurate timecode, gunlock and word clock generator with an integrated RF transceiver. But it’s the advanced features enabled by integrated simultaneous Wi-Fi and the power of the BLINK protocol that really make the :wave stand out. These features enable not only convenient sharing of Timecode and metadata, but also wireless control and monitoring of Sound Devices 6-Series mixer/recorders.

The :wave offers tailormade functionality to support Sound Devices 6-Series mixer/recorders, giving audio department users the ability to sync and share metadata and timecode via a bespoke Timecode

Systems Sync lead from the :wave’s data port to the USB port on a Sound Devices 6-Series mixer/recorder. This not only ensures all recorded sound files contain the same accurate timecode as the cameras, but also allows full exchange of metadata, the capability to monitor status and control, and wirelessly enable the device from the BLINK Hub.


BLINK RF: Synchronisation between units is via BLINK RF - a wireless long-range sync, control and metadata exchange protocol operating in the uncongested range of 865MHz to 923MHz. This ensures complete reliability, wherever you are, and zero drift between units even on a long and complicated shoot day.

BLINK Hub: The BLINK Hub is an embedded feature within the :wave. This dashboard, among other things, unlocks the capability to view, monitor and control Timecode Systems’ BLINK enabled devices and Sound Devices 6-Series mixer/recorders from any smartphone (iOS or Android), tablet or computer over Wi-Fi.

Logging & reporting: For advanced logging and reporting, you can also use the Wi-Fi functionality to connect the :wave to the MovieSlate® 8 iOS app. A seamless exchange of data between Sound Devices’ 6-Series mixer/recorders, the :wave and the MovieSlate® 8 iOS app, allows users to effortlessly generate stunning sound reports.

User-friendly features: The :wave is small (94mm x 67mm x 23mm), has a solid aluminium casing and features a high resolution blue OLED display, flexible mounting methods and multiple powering 5V micro USB connector, LEMO2 9-36V DC plus internal back up battery).

Battery back-up: The large capacity Li-Polymer internal battery is constantly charged from any power input and is designed to run the unit for a minimum of 8 hours with RF and Wi-Fi switched on, much longer without Wi-Fi enabled, making it perfect for audio and camera battery swaps or location moves.
