hernesheir commented on the word crystal sync
(n): in cinematography, a way of recording synchronized sound where the film camera runs at correct speed with a quartz crystal-governed motor. A tape recorder records its pilottone using a built-in quartz crystal pilottone generator. The crystal is much like the kind used in a quartz watch. Unlike cable sync, the camera and tape recorder are not attached.
