As the industry advances and cameras get smaller we must continue to try and provide the best gear possible while trying to keep it as small as possible due to limited mounting options on some of the new smaller camera systems. the Timecode Sync Boxes from Mozegear do this. With three output versions Lemo, BNC and 3.5mm. there is a flavor for everyone out there below are the full specs from Mozegear:
The timecode generator is just 2.8 cubic inches, which is about a third the size of the current TIG. Loaded with features, its tiny size fits even the smallest cameras and rigs. The variable timecode output level and “flow through audio design” adds practicality for cameras and recorders that are not designed to receive timecode. Like the Tig, the Q28 works with all standard frame rates, cross jams, has a frame rate discrepancy indicator, and a jamming indicator. It also has a feature which shows the timecode in hours and minutes. The durable chassis has an aluminum body, reinforced center support, and a battery tube that keeps the batteries secure even when dropped. Overall the Tig Q28 is unbelievably small and “just works”.
Incredible Small Size
At only 2.8 cubic inches, it is the smallest timecode generator on the market and fits even the smallest cameras and rigs.
Flow Through Audio
The Q28 offers a timecode solution for single input cameras and recorders. It combines both the audio and timecode into a single output so that it works with devices that do not have timecode inputs (i.e. DSLR’s).
Variable Timecode Output Level
The output level of the TIG Q28 has 15 adjustable settings between 6mV and 3V. In total it has a range of 54dB. This means that this design will work with many recorders, cameras, and devices (including Apple “i” products).
“Show” Position for current timecode
When the switch is turned to the “show” position, the Tig will tell you the current timecode in hours and minutes.
Frame Rate Discrepancy Indicator
The “frame rate discrepancy indicator” will evaluate the incoming timecode rate and flash two seconds on, two seconds off to let you know the rate you are cross jamming. This eliminates jamming incorrect frame rates.
While jamming, a light on the TIG Q28 will flash one second on, one second off to reassure you that the jam is successful. If you are cross jamming, it will flash two seconds on, two seconds off.
Supports All Standard Frame Rates
All standard frame rates are supported such as: 23.976, 24 25, 29.97, 29.97DF, 30, 30DF.
The layout and design is done with ease in mind. It is simple to set up and can be quickly controlled.
High Level Accuracy Design
With a PPM of just .5 and a temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), the Tig Q28 is an accurate source of timecode.
Battery Tube Compartment
Batteries will remain secure with a battery compartment tube design.
The Tig will cross jam all rates and the LED will specifically indicate that it is cross jammed.
The Q28 is made from aluminum with a center support beam through the case.
All MozeGear products have a 2-year limited warranty.

It is also the only timecode box that offers flow Through Audio to feed timecode to an audio track. I have been using them for about 4 months with perfect results
