One of the multiple terms used by movie pirates to describe the source material that was used to make a bootlegged pirate copy, normally distributed in VideoCD, SVCD or DivX format.

Precisely Telesync means a copy which was shot in an empty cinema or from the projection booth with a professional camera, directly connected to the sound source.

Other bootleg version methods include Telecine, Screener, Cam and DVD-Rip.

Also referred to as TS.

A telesync is the same spec as a CAM except it uses an external audio source (most likely an audio jack in the chair for hard of hearing people). A direct audio source does not ensure a good quality audio source, as a lot of background noise can interfere. A lot of the times a telesync is filmed in an empty cinema or from the projection booth with a professional camera, giving a better picture quality. Quality ranges drastically, check the sample before downloading the full release. A high percentage of Telesyncs are CAMs that have been mislabeled.

A 'professional' bootleg camera job with direct sound. Wherein a VCD pirating group sends a cammer to a cinema with camera and wireless mic's. Cammer attaches wireless mics to speakers, videotapes the image off the cinema screen and goes and rips a/v to his computer and encodes and disseminates through the internet.

Asian versions of telesyncs are called silvers
Non-direct sound or overall shitty quality telesyncs are often refered to as cams.
Centropy and TCR release some of the best telesyncs on the scene right now. FTF and UMS release the worst.
