Readers for the Universal Serial Bus
|Welcome to our
"USB-TC" family of time code readers for the Universal Serial Bus.
These tiny but rugged
and nicely styled metal boxes are perfect for laptop and other
slot-limited applications, and are both USB 1.1
and 2.0 compliant. They use standard USB cables and hubs, and can
thus be combined with all other USB
products, including the use of multiple USB-TC products on the same
computer. All USB-TC products
include a high performance on-board processor, advanced diagnostics,
in-system electronic software
updates, plug and play installation, Windows 2K/XP software drivers,
and full FCC and CE-Mark approval. Each USB-TC product comes with a
standard 2-meter USB cable and a test/demo/support CD-ROM (including
driver software and a program "service" that can be used to set the
PC's clock to match the time code that is being read). Large order
customization is available. This model family is RoHS compliant.
Approximate size: 4.5 x 2.7 x 1.2 (inches)
Automatically adapts to SMPTE
(30fps), EBU (25fps), and FILM (24fps) LTC standards. Reads all time
bits, user bits, and embedded bits, including the drop-frame and
color-frame flags. Accepts 100mVpp to 10Vpp input levels, 1/10x to
80x, bi-directional, DF/NDF. Uses a Hi-Z BNC input connector, and a
differential LTC input (for superior noise rejection).
Reader and NTSC Line 21 Data Reader.
Includes all features of the USB-LTC/RDR above, plus reads VITC and
NTSC Line 21 data, including caption data, V-chip information, and
other XDS data services. Automatically adapts to NTSC (30fps) and
PAL/SECAM (25fps) video standards. Reads VITC at -1x to STILL to +3x
or better (is highly machine dependant). The video input uses a
75ohm BNC connector and is differential (for superior noise
Multi-Format IRIG Time Code Reader.
Automatically adapts to whatever play speed IRIG standard signal is
being supplied, including TTL (DCLS) and Modulated IRIG-A, B, D, E,
G, and H. Supports all standard IRIG code formats except for the
high frequency (1MHz) modulated IRIG-B (B150-B153). Reads all IRIG
data fields and bits, including time-of-day, day-of-year, straight
binary seconds (SBS), and all control bits. For modulated IRIG,
accepts 400mVpp to 10Vpp input signals having a standard
mark-to-space ratio of 3:1 to 6:1. Uses a single Hi-Z BNC input
connector which is single ended for TTL (DCLS) signals, and which is
differential for modulated signals (for superior noise rejection).
*Note that the current onboard firmware only supports IRIG-B time
