My brother and I were asked to shoot a behind the scenes documentary of a music video being shot in and around Bristol. We were using the Sony EX1R in 1080p, while the main unit were shooting on the Sony PMW-350 XDCAM. Some of the video was shot in a studio, and some on location. I shall post some screen grabs, and the finished documentary when it's done, but here are some on set stills for now.

Hey,
No it's just a mini jack to mini jack. The timecode you see, is a pre-made movie with the song as the audio track. We were outputting the audio down the cable for playback. I don't know if there are any apps that can allow iPods to read or generate timecode, but this solution is fine for music videos.

Someone actually sent me a link the other day about iPhones/iPads generating timecode. Pretty nifty.

Ah... cool, It's a nifty idea using the headphone port to output timecode signal, didn't realise you could do that.

LTC is just an audio signal.

Make up a movie with said LTC signal as the soundtrack, and you're golden. You can do this with anything that's capable of playing back a movie.

Of course, if you're feeling just slightly more advanced, it isn't usually very hard to write code to do it properly.

We were asked to make this documentary by Creative Video to showcase the Sony XDCAM kit they had provided for the shoot. They also wanted to showcase how a typical, low budget music video might get put together. The documentary was produced to coincide with an article that CVP had produced for their new AV magazine The Iris, and also to go on their website.

You can see the final video:here (10 mins)
