This eight digit display unit is designed to auto-detect and display SMPTE or EBU time code. It is capable of reading in either direction (forward or reverse) at speeds ranging from 1/15 to 3x play-speed. Setup features allow the unit to display time in either 12 or 24 hour format and to display "User Bits" data. An Error Detection and Correction feature maintains flicker-free operation in the event of poor quality time code. An Error Detection Indicator is also included and the Error feature may be turned off via an internal DIP switch. Pressing the front mounted "Hold" push-button allows the display to be "frozen". A rear-mounted toggle switch selects whether "Time" or "User Bits" are displayed.
If the ESE Time Code Output option is ordered, a rear-mounted BNC connector will provide access to the TC90 output of Hours, Minutes and Seconds. Up to 100 slave units may be driven, up to 4000' away. If the RS-232 Output option is ordered, the Hours, Minutes, Seconds, Frames, User Bits and Flag bits are output once-per-frame using ESE Format "C". A rear-mounted DB-9 connector is provided.
