Tail Pop

From Chace Audio

A tail pop is a 1kHz tone, lasting one frame in duration, placed two seconds after the last frame of picture at the end of a film reel. The purpose of a tail pop is to provide verification of sync at the end of a film reel. Tail pops are not generally included on the last reel of a feature. The origin of the tail pop is shrouded in mystery, but a legend from the depths of antiquity claims that their primary purpose is to wake up telecine engineers.
