Availability: Call for Availability


The eight digit display of the ES-493U is designed to auto-detect and display SMPTE or EBU time code. It is capable of reading in either direction (forward or reverse) at speeds ranging from 1/20 to 10x play-speed. Setup features allow the unit to display time in either 12 or 24 hour format and to display "User Bits" data. An Error Detection and Correction feature maintains flicker-free operation in the event of poor quality time code. An Error Detection Indicator is also included and the Error feature may be turned off via an internal DIP switch. Grounding the "Hold" input (on the rear-mounted terminal block) allows the display to be "frozen". Another input selects whether "Time" or "User Bits" are displayed.
