Main Features

Synchronized Playback - Simple and Powerful
product features

Video Sync Pro offers seamless playback of movies in sync to MIDI Timecode & MIDI Machine Control. It works with all major DAWs including Pro Tools®, Logic Pro X, Nuendo, Cubase, Ableton Live!, Bitwig and Studio One - or any other device that can generate MIDI Timecode as a source.

Enjoy the tightest possible sync integration with Pro Tools|Ultimate™ & Pro Tools|HD™ using Satellite Link - for incredibly accurate scrubbing, selection, looping & moving in any direction in the timeline, or within Pro Tools® - while the picture constantly updates.

Video Sync Pro's sync engine provides stunningly fast lock-up times and guaranteed tight sync - in many cases, better than the video engine built into your DAW.

Playback Engine with GPU-supported Rendering
product features

Leverage the power of Video Sync Pro to playback all of the most commonly used codecs including ProRes, H.264, and AVC Intra. As well as commonly used containers such as Quicktime MOV, Video Sync Pro adds support for MXF (Op 1A and Op Atom). Stop wasting time transcoding movie clips to a format preferred by your DAW. Just drop the video clip into Video Sync, and it does the rest.

Video Sync Pro gives exceptional video playback and saves you valuable time. You can now even play back two video streams simultaneously in either A/B, side-by-side or picture-in-picture modes.

Video Device Support with Unrivalled Flexibility
product features

Don't be tied to simple playback through your computer monitor. As well as the Blackmagic Design devices supported by Video Sync (DeckLink, UltraStudio and Intensity ranges), Video Sync Pro adds additional support for AJA devices from the KONA, Io & T-TAP ranges. Remove the headache of platform-specific video requirements, with additional support for 4K video through AJA & Blackmagic Design devices.

Video Sync Pro displays the video on all attached devices as well as the inbuilt player view at the same time and ensures that all the displays are in perfect sync, using Display Delay Compensation for each video device. Video Sync Pro offers even tighter gen-locked sync with the additional Video Reference option.

Customizable Movie Export
product features

An essential part of any sound-for-picture workflow, is the ability to export a variety of movies. Ever needed to export a movie excerpt with an added piece of music for the Director? Or needed to export the whole video file with your programmed visual cues - to send to the scoring stage? Now you can - with Video Sync's flexible movie exporting features.

Video Sync offers you the flexibility to select video and audio codec output options, include or remove audio tracks, and export a range based on the timeline selection.

I think there are certain things that just make sense, and end up becoming the industry standard. [...] Video Sync is kind of the same thing for me; I personally think it’s going to be a must-have if you’re working to video. Especially with all the different file formats and video encoding; all the different variables that can happen."
