The RLT-50 is a time code translator; it accepts time code signals from a 9-Pin RS-422 interface and translates it to SMPTE Longitudinal Time Code.
Translates RS-422 "Time-Code" obtained from any 9-pin VCR remote connector into standard SMPTE Longitudinal Time-Code (LTC).
Sony RS-422 Protocal
Works with all Sony protocol VCRs, including Betacam and DVCAM.
Provides LTC Time-Code at all tape speeds. Selectable Forward direction only, or Forward/Reverse direction LTC output format.
Use the RLT-50 when LTC is not directly available from VCR (or other machine) for operating Audio Synchronizers, making LTC copies, or use with other Horita LTC products to make Window Dubs, Log Source Tapes, etc.
Switch selectable "-1 Frame Search Offset" when translating at search speeds or at still frame compensates for the +1 frame "On-Time" updating done by many downstream LTC readers, edit controllers and other LTC products.
