Horita TRG-100 overview

  • 1Description

The TRG-100 from Horita is a multi-frame rate SMPTE timecode reader/generator with an 8-character, red LED display suitable for installation in a studio, video production room, large or small editing suite or in a laboratory or test situation. It can both read and generate timecode for SD and HD video frame rates and its small desktop size lets it sit conveniently on a desktop, or be rack or wall mounted. The timecode reader can discern between 23.976 and 24 fps (frames-per-second) timecode and between 29.97 and 30 fps timecode and displays the true frame rate. Its operation is simple and is controlled from four front panel switches.

Can read and generate SMPTE timecode at frame rates of 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97 drop/non-drop frame, and 30 fps (frames-per-second)
HD frame rates of 50/720p, 50/1080i, 59.94/720p, and 59.94/1080i are also supported by the TRG-100 TCR and TCG
Eight digit 0.56" LED display shows hours, minutes, seconds, and frame number in familiar HH:MM:SS:FF format, as well as the TCR or TCG frame rate, and any TCG preset values
LED indicators show if TCR or TCG is selected for display, drop frame timecode, Preset-1, Preset-2 selected to preset the TCG, TCG genlock status, and TCR FPS detect status
Provides both balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA inputs and outputs for timecode
TCR reads SMPTE timecode at speeds from one frame-per-second up to about 10 times play speed
TCR auto FPS detect mode operates automatically to detect 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97DF, 29.97ND, and 30 fps frame rates
FPS DET LED indicator shows when frame rate has been accurately detected and measured
TCG starting time can quickly be preset either to one of two user preset values or jammed to the timecode value being read by the TCR
TCG Run/Stop momentary action switch permits quick starting and stopping of the TCG incrementing the timecode value
TCG operation can be set to free run or to genlock (phase lock) the generated timecode to the incoming video or to the incoming timecode
LED indicator shows if TCG is genlocked or not. When in free run mode the TCG has a very low free run drift rate of less than +/- 1 frame-per-hour
NTSC/PAL composite SD video ("bi-level") or HD tri-level sync inputs can be used for video genlock reference for the TCG
Standard SMPTE 29.97DF, or 29.97ND fps TCG timecode can be genlocked to an externally applied 29.97 fps NTSC SD video or to 59.94/720p or 59.94/1080i HD tri-level sync signal
Standard SMPTE 24, 25, or 30 fps TCG timecode can be genlocked to an externally applied PAL timecode, 25 fps SD PAL video, or 50/720p or 50/1080i HD tri-level sync
29.97SD video input or a 29.97ND timecode input can genlock 23.976 TCG timecode, and vice versa
Operates from a small AC power adapter, which is included, or can be operated in the field from 9 to 12 VDC battery power
Brightness control permits adjusting display intensity for indoor use in a darkened room or outdoor use in bright light
Can be installed in 19" rack or wall mounted by using an appropriate adapter kit
