As display and audio technologies move to ever more complex and higher resolution systems (4K, UHD, HDR, Dolby ATMOS etc.), the processing requirements can easily cause AV synchronisation issues.  Each component change, software, or firmware update has the potential to alter the AV sync in a system.  Watching content with poor AV sync is one of the most annoying and complained about problems.

Sync-One2 accurately measures the time span between an audio beep and video flash (e.g. a 2-pop / flash frame or similar, Sync-One2 specific test files are available for download), clearly displaying the delay and if the audio leads or lags with reference to the video.  The error is displayed in milliseconds (1/1000th of a second) and if desired also in frames, in real time.   A running average may also be enabled to average potentially 1000's of readings, again this is displayed in milliseconds or frames.  Statistics are calculated on the most recent readings taken to help check overall system stability or drift, including the average and span of the set of readings.

Sync-One2 will work with any resolution or type of display, so is 4K / UHD / HDR ready, fine with LCD, OLED, Plasma, and Projectors.

Sync-One2 has the following core features to help make the task easier and quicker

  • Simple one handed operation, just turn on Sync-One2 and it's ready to go
  • Easy to read OLED display
  • A simple menu system is used to adjust settings and set options
  • Settings and options stored in flash memory so retained even if the batteries are removed, although the memory buffer is cleared at shutdown
  • Self calibrating to help reduce false readings from ambient light and noise
  • Real time output in milliseconds / frames, a rolling real time average can also be displayed in milliseconds or frames
  • Fast startup, ready to take measurements in just a few seconds

 

Full Specifications

Accuracy

  • Measurement of audio visual delay up to ±750 milliseconds
  • Display is rounded to the nearest 1 millisecond or 1/100th of a frame, internal timing resolution of 0.05 milliseconds between light and sound pulse
  • Self calibration adjusts for ambient noise and light, including fluorescent/ LED light flicker
  • Automatic microphone gain adjustment during calibration process
  • Adjustable audio trigger level (default is high sensitivity)
  • Adjustable video trigger level (default is high sensitivity)

General

  • Dimensions (H x W x D), 144mm x 90mm x 30mm (5.6" x 3.5" x 1.2”)
  • 165g (5.8oz) excluding batteries
  • 16 x 2 OLED display for easy viewing, fast response, and low power consumption
  • Operating temperature from 5 to 50 Celsius (41 to 122 Fahrenheit)

Power

  • 2 x AA (LR6) batteries, rechargeable AA batteries are fine too
  • Reverse battery protection
  • Battery life from standard AA batteries is around 50 hours of continuous operation
  • A tiny current of less than 0.1 µA is used when off.  Even so when not being used for a while it is always best to remove the batteries
  • Low battery indication and auto shutdown when batteries become too low to maintain accuracy
