    ESE HD-488 HD Time Code Reader/Generator/Inserter with NTP-C Option

    Manufacturer: ESE

    Item #: HD-488-NTPC   •   MFG #: HD-488-NTPC







    The HD-488 is a Time Code Reader, Generator and Inserter for HD (High Definition) Serial Digital Interface (SDI) video. Linear Time Code (LTC) and RP-188 Time Code are both read and generated by the HD-488. The unit also accepts a multitude of HD formats. SD (Standard Definition) is available by specifying the model HD-488/SD, this will allow the unit to also accept 4:2:2 (525 and 625 line) digital video signals. The inserter mode provides the ability to superimpose time and/or user bits onto videowith alphanumeric characters. As many as thirty characters of text may also be superimposed onto the video. Flexibility is also provided to the user, allowing for selection of the information to be displayed(time, time and user bits or text) on up to three different windows. The three windows are independent of each other and may be blanked.

    The video input and output are accessible via rear mounted BNC connectors. Time code input and output connectors on the rear panel are XLR(When option IRIG is specified the IRIG-B input is via a BNC connector). The HD-488 is housed in a single height rack mount enclosure which is black anodized.

    A 16 x 2 character LCD shows the current time and status of the HD-488. The front panel controls allow access to all configuration settings as displayed on the 16 x 2 character LCD. The same controls are available on the PC software which is accessible via the rear mounted USB port.
