The HD-488E/SD HD/SD-SDI Time Code Reader/Generator/Inserter from ESE is designed for high definition or standard definition SDI video. Linear timecode (LTC), Digital vertical interval timecode (D-VITC) and RP-188 timecode are both read and generated by the HD-488E/SD. The unit accepts a multitude of HD formats. In SD mode the unit will accept 4:2:2 (525 and 625 line) digital video signals. The insert mode provides the ability to superimpose time and/or user bits onto video with alphanumeric characters.
As many as thirty characters of text may 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. Other features include selectable color fonts, RP-188 timecode functionality in both HD and SD modes, selectable onscreen date formats, and front-panel entry of user text data.
