Deity TC-SL1 Smart Timecode Slate

The World's First Bluetooth Smart Slate

The TC-SL1 is the world's first timecode smart slate that is syncable via a Bluetooth® phone app. Showcasing state-of-the-art features, the TC-SL1 offers users the ability to download our free timecode slate app and control their timecode clapperboard wirelessly. Sync your TC-SL1 at the same time that you are wirelessly Bluetooth® timecode syncing your TC-1 timecode generators.


  • Durable Compact Build; Uni-body Design
  • 1/4″ TRS Output and 5-Pin TC Input/Output (LEMO Compatible)
  • Up to 250ft Range via our Bluetooth Timecode Slate App, Sidus Audio
  • Backlit Dry Erase Surface
  • LED Array Dot Matrix Display
  • USB-C 25 Watt Charging Port; Can Also Be Used For Firmware Updates
  • ~1″ OLED rear display; On-Board Menu Navigation
  • Built-In Handle for One-Hand Operation
  • +25hrs of Battery Life; 100% Brightness Dot Matrix Display and 100% Backlit Dry Erase Display with Clapper Left Open

Backlit for Night Shoots

Both the slate backlight and dot matrix timecode display can be dimmed. There are six steps of brightness available in the onboard menu. When you open the clapperboard the TC display and slate backlight turn on.

Long Range Wireless Control

Using our exclusive Bit Connectify™️ technology you can control up to 20x TC-SL1 timecode slates (or TC-1 timecode boxes) from 250ft away. This makes the TC-SL1 the world's first smart slate with Bluetooth®.

The TC-SL1 also features a secondary RF chip for syncing timecode with any TC-1 devices on set from a range of 30ft.

Universal Timecode Compatibility

Already own a timecode box ecosystem outside of the Sidus Audio family?

The TC-SL1 can read and output LTC timecode signal, making it compatible with any brand of timecode gear on the market. Plus, the TC-SL1 can auto-sync its internal TC and FPS to an external timecode signal.

Even after powering down the TC-SL1 timecode will continue running for 6 hours.

Anti-Glare and Dry Erase

We ensured that the TC-SL1 smart slate display can be seen on camera no matter how it is held in front of the lens and no matter what angle the light is coming from on set. The front of the TC-SL1 is made of a new type of dry-erase polymer with an anti-reflective surface. This unique matte finish faceplate means post-production will always be able to reference the slate during editing.

Don't Fly Off the Handle

The TC-SL1 features a built-in handle to allow for one-handed operation. Inside the handle we've also added rubber grip pads for traction. The top clapper portion features a thumb notch making the process even more ergonomic.

Precision CNC-Milled Frame

The TC-SL1 is built out of a single piece of aluminum and milled on a robotic CNC machine. This gives it a premium build quality and durability that feels great in your hands. It also features smooth beveled edges which means it won't scrape surfaces when you lay it down on set.

Longer Battery Life

Our timecode slate features dual NP-F battery bays. This allows you to hot-swap the batteries (if you forget to charge them) without powering down your smart slate. And best yet, the onboard USB-C port doubles as a charging port.

The TC-SL1 is compatible with USB-C PD3.0, QC2.0, FCP, and AFC quick charging protocols. It is suggested to use a charger with a 15V 2A output to experience the fastest charging.

More Battery Capacity

These aren't your average NP-F550 batteries. Each pack is rated at 3350mAh (24.79Wh), which is 33% more capacity than the average NP-F550 battery. In designing these batteries, we also included under-voltage discharge protection, over-voltage protection, and short detection cutoff protection. Plus, their Deity yellow exterior shell helps make them easier to spot in the dark. These batteries will work with any device that is compatible with Sony L-Series batteries.

Environmentally Friendly and Durable

Clapperboard slates need to stand up against heavy use. That is why we selected Black Walnut wood sourced from a certified sustainable farm in Tennessee, USA for our wooden clapper.

Why Black Walnut?

Well, Black Walnut is an incredibly durable hardwood. It has excellent shock resistance and resists warping from heat and humidity.
