Timecode Systems will use IBC to launch a B:LINK network that boosts its wirelessly shared timecode. The proprietary B:LINK RF network keeps the same accurate wireless sync over the sub GHz ISM bands, but adds two-way multiplexed status/control and metadata. This allows for monitoring and control of connected “B:LINK-enabled” Timecode Systems’ devices. It is built to allow for long-range remote control and status of any connected third-party accessories.
