LTC/VITC READER & TRANSLATOR BOXES

The RS232/RS422 serial interface on these boxes allow PC's or any other device having a serial port to read time code(s). Boxes include automatic NTSC/SMPTE and PAL/EBU mode switching, plus a serial connector kit if needed. Note that when using RS232 connections, a nonstandard RS232 cable is required. (order below).
As of mid 2009, the AEC-BOX-10, -20, -5 and -25 models are available in limited supply and the AEC-BOX-1 and AEC-BOX-2 are out of production. See our newer model, AEC-uBOX-2 to replace the functionality of the AEC-BOX-1 and AEC-BOX-2 models as well as having CE and RoHS compliance. Contact the factory for specific details.

SERIAL ADAPTER BOXES FOR PARALLEL REMOTE VTR'S

Make JVC, Panasonic, and Sony parallel remote VTRs look like "Sony protocol" RS422 serial remote VTRs. One adapter box is required for each VTR to be controlled. JVC interface boxes cannot be used with Sony VTR's, etc., because the parallel remote interfaces are completely different. Each box includes full machine control features, standard editing functions, automatic NTSC/PAL mode switching, a 2 meter parallel remote cable for your VTR, and selected time code capabilities.
