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.
Recently however, there have been movements to ban camming from theaters, and to put the offenders in jail or leave them with large fines.
