As the heart of your workflow, the :pulse operates as a multi-functional timecode and metadata hub and device control centre for multi-camera set ups.

The :pulse has a built in Ethernet/WiFi bridge plus a two port Ethernet switch. So you can attach two cameras to one :pulse for 3D rigs.

Ethernet accessories
The :pulse can also use the second Ethernet port to connect a camera accessory in addition to the camera inself; such as lens motor controller or proxy recorder. Acting as another Wifi to Ethernet bridge.

Full wireless camera control
The :pulse is designed to support the latest camera protocols including ETHERNET, LANC, USB and SERIAL communications ports. Used in conjunction with MovieSlate 8 (with the Pro Feature subscription), the newest Buddy gives ARRI Alexa users full wireless camera control and status monitoring, access to full metadata and lens motor control conveniently from an iPad or iPhone.

User-friendly features
First of all, it’s small (94mm x 67mm x 23mm to be exact). It also has a high resolution blue OLED display, flexible mounting methods, USB2.0 Host or USB2.0 Device. Multiple powering options; 9-36V DC LEMO2, 5V USB and PoE on the RJ45 connector. The  large capacity Li-Polymer internal battery is constantly charged from any of these inputs and designed to run the unit for at least 5 hours without external power present. On an ARRI Alexa simply connect a single cable for Ethernet/Power plus a Timecode cable and you’re good to go.
