Overview
  • 1Description

The Link Electronics PCD-88 is a portable closed caption decoder for the NTSC system; data channels and text select are offered for user selection. The required input signal is composite video with caption data on line 21 of field one.

Note: Optional power supply (such as PWT-300) purchased separately

LED Read Out
Four LEDs indicate which channel is selected CC1, CC2, T1 or T2.
Time Out
An automatic caption "Time Out" function will erase displayed captions after 15 seconds if no new data is received.
Application
This device is useful when a monitor without a Closed Caption decoder is used in broadcast monitoring; this device can be mounted close to the monitor because of its compact size.
Usage
The input is high impedance looping configured as single ended, AC coupled, to work in all environments. The remaining BNC connector must be terminated with 75Ω. A regulated 12VDC power supply, such as the Link PWT-300, is included. The PWT-300 operates on AC power from 90 to 240VAC.
