Upgrade Your Camera for Fast Video to Data Syncing
Add an audio Linear Timecode (LTC) to your video for fast, accurate and simple video to data syncing.
Fast and Simple Syncing
Enhance your video with data
Video that includes a Universal Coordinate Time (UTC) timecode lets software like Dartfish and Telemetry Overlay know exactly when the video was recorded.
This enables the software to accurately link the timecoded data from Protern with the start of the video.

Microphone Input on Your Video Camera? 👍
Video cameras with a microphone input can record an audio Linear Timecode (LTC).
GoPros, Insta360 or DJI action cameras
GPS enabled action cameras are good to go.
Most action cameras have a built-in GPS that will record the UTC time of the video. Telemetry Overlay can read the time code from GoPro, Insta360 and DJI cameras to accurately sync with your data*.
* Dartfish currently does not support time codes from GPS enabled cameras.
Take ownership of your training with Protern.
Protern has two options to generate an Linear Timecode (LTC): Protern Clock iOS App and Dish. Both options will require a camera with an microphone port.
Protern Clock iOS App
$9.99 USD on the App Store
Protern developed the first iOS app that generates an accurate audio UTC time-code for your camera.
Protern Clock is best for those who want to get going with UTC time-coded video quickly and want a more cost-effective option.
$429.99 USD on the Protern Store
Dish is a dedicated device for your camera that was designed for the film and television industry. It produces an audio UTC time-code using the atomic clocks from GPS satellites. Dish also has an external microphone to record run commentary.
Dish is best for those who want a no-fuss device connected to their camera that’s ready to use at any point.
Using a Camera on a Phone, or One With No Microphone Input?
Don’t worry, you can still merge your data.
To merge your Protern data with video, you will need to use Telemetry Overlay or Dartfish to manually line up the start of your data with a known location in the video. This could be a specific gate, start, or finish.
In Protern you can make a quantriq specifically for video analysis, by setting the start of the quantriq at a specific location, such as a gate.
