If you look at the image posted by LightCube containing the lighting diagram, it appears that no PocketWizards were involved: http://images.indiegogo.com/medias/990821/pictures/full/20130817183338-BalloonSetup.jpg?1376789622

So, I don't see how the flash duration of 1/500, which they explicitly mention in the diagram, would cover the frame evenly in their scenario.

The Pocket Wizard results were put forward as an independent example that 1/500th sync speed is indeed possible without a curtain issue if you refine the flash timing, not to say that they were involved in taking this photo.

If we only had Canon sync speed data to go on this would be an impossible claim.
