The Horita RLT-50 connects to the RS-422 9-pin "remote" connector available on most professional video VCR, VTR, disk, and solid state record/playback devices, and translates the RS-422 time code information into standard SMPTE Longitudinal Time Code (LTC). The RLT-50 operates with SD NTSC RS-170A or PAL 625/50 analog composite video and auto detects the video frame rate and outputs the correct 25 FPS or 29.97 FPS drop frame time code. It can also generate 24 FPS time code if the input video frame rate is at 24 FPS.
- Works with ALL video recording and playback devices that use the Sony RS-422 protocol to control their operation, such as Hi8, Betacam, U-Matic, 1-inch, videodisk, solid state, etc. equipment.
- Use the RLT-50 to generate standard SMPTE time code to operate audio synchronizers, make LTC copies, or use with other HORITA LTC products to make window dubs, log source tapes, etc. when LTC is not directly available from an RS-232 controlled video playback device.
- Operates "stand alone" or in line with edit controller - includes DB-9 cable.
- LTC output genlocked to video SD RS-170A or PAL 625/50 analog composite video input from playback device.
- Switch selectable front panel switches allow user to change the time code user bits if desired.
- Provides LTC time code at all tape speeds. Selectable forward direction only or forward/reverse direction LTC output format that follows change of playback direction.
- Switch selectable "–1 frame offset" to compensate for the +1 frame "on-time" updating done by many downstream LTC readers, edit controllers and other LTC products.
- Available only in standard 19" Rackmount or Horita 7.5" "Short Rack" packages (no additional charge).
