Syncing the Deity TC-1 With Wireless PRO Timecode

In this article, we’ll walk you through how to sync the Deity TC-1 Timecode Generator to the Wireless PRO.

Step 1

Connect your Wireless PRO receiver to a computer or phone running RØDE Central.

Step 2

Enable timecode and select the framerate you’re shooting in. Toggle ‘Real time’ on or off, depending on which format you’d like your timecode to appear in, then click ‘Timecode Modes’, choose ‘Timecode 5’ and click ‘Apply’. Check that the output gain is set to 0dB to ensure your camera detects the timecode signal.
