Is 'synthetic phonics' a different way of teaching phonics from other phonic schemes?

I've read a couple of articles over the past few weeks about an apparently very successful experiment in Scotland where children were taught to read using 'synthetic phonics'.

As these were not detailed articles, I am unclear as to whether synthetic phonics actaully differs in some way from schemes like Jolly Phonics or whether reading in Scotalnd is usually taught using a system that differs from phonics.

I'd be really interested in hearing from the 'phonics experts' on this.

TIA
