Dish makes syncing video with Protern's alpine skiing data fast, simple and accurate.

Simply turn on your Dish, plug it into your camera's microphone port and film your athletes.

Dish records a Linear Timecode (LTC - audio time code) onto the left audio track of the video. Programs like Dartfish and Telemetry Overlay can read the time code and automatically line up the video with Protern's alpine skiing data. 

  • Dish DM device
  • Shoe mount to attach Dish to camera
  • 3.5mm audio cable
  • Camera with a microphone port
  • 2X AA batteries
  • (Optional) Hot/Cold shoe mount on the camera

Dish is a device that uses GNSS (GPS, Galileo, GLONASS, BeiDou) satellites to generate an extremely accurate audio time code. This audio signal is added to video via the camera's microphone input. The audio time code is read by video software such as Dartfish and Telemetry Overlay to precisely line up the video with collected Protern Sensor data.

Dish was created for the film and TV industry to accurately synchronize cameras. The generated time code is supported by most video editing software programs.
