The ES-263 Portable SMPTE Time Code Generator from ESE is a microprocessor-based unit that can be preset using the front panel mounted controls (only hours and minutes are presettable as seconds and frames are automatically set to 00:00). The ES-263 can generate Time Data or User Bits (User Bits are presettable with hexadecimal values "0 - F"). The SMPTE Time Code (unbalanced) is output via a rear mounted RCA and the Video Sync Input (composite video or sync) is via a rear mounted BNC connector. The unit is housed in a small, portable enclosure that includes a convenient belt clip. The internal battery provides up to 10 hours of operation per charge. An AC/wall adapter/charger is also included. PAL and/or EBU operation can be optionally specified.
