PHAROAH AUDIO’S SYNCHECK 3 - Accurate Sync In Post Is Non Negotiable!



I have just borrowed a Syncheck 3 from Mike Woods at Dirty Dog Audio Ltd, the UK distributor of SYNCHECK and will be using it for a series of forthcoming test on video codecs/hardware in Pro Tools 11.1.3, so I thought a quick introduction would be helpful to those who haven’t met this device yet (you really should know about it if you are serious about post!).

Syncheck was developed by Richard Fairbanks, an Emmy-nominated re-recording mixer, editor, sound supervisor and owner of Manhattan’s Pharoah Audio, and is now on its third hardware iteration.

Syncheck was conceived to work out with absolute certainty the sync delay of your visual playback system and also, and somewhat more importantly, how robust the sync is and whether there is any drift – but more on that later. So, when your client asks is that in sync, you can answer with certainty, knowing that your playback system is calibrated and corrected, and you are not seeing hardware errors.

SYNCHECK 3 - How Does it Work?

Syncheck has on board sound and light detectors that register the leading edge of the sound and light burst from a test file, and measures how much time occurs between them. Simples!

The LED display shows whether audio or video is ahead (i.e which occurs first), and what the delay is, measured in fames and also in milliseconds, from hundredths of a frame up to half a second! (where at which even your mum would notice the sync!). This is all achieved at an accuracy of +/- 0.03 milliseconds (that’s about 7% of a frame at 25fps!), and in real time too.

Syncheck 3 has a buffer of 40 measurements and will store these for you. It can calculate average error, and the “span” (maximum deviation).
