Timecode VS Genlock

The topic of syncing video and audio is usually just associated with timecode jamming for audio and video. Many starting out or even intermediate sound mixers aren’t aware of the advantages of using Genlock and Timecode together.

What Is LTC? (Longitudinal Time Code)

LTC stands for Longitudinal Time Code. This is a audio signal which transmits a series of square waves from a “Master” device. The Master device would be the main device you are running the timecode from, this could be from mixer to camera or separate timecode box to a mixer or camera.
