Horita TCI-50
VITC/LTC Reader/RS-422 Inserter


The TCI-50 reads SMPTE VITC or LTC time code and translates and inserts the time code numbers into the RS-422 data stream going back to an edit controller or personal computer.

  • Responds to controller commands requesting VCR time code location, as well as cue, preroll, and other time code related commands
  • High speed reading capability reads VITC and LTC at various VCR search/wind speeds, depending on channel bandwidth and tape formats
  • LTC input source can be from an audio channel or a time code address track
  • Front panel switches are provided to select between VITC or LTC, as well as select "auto" mode which automatically switches to VITC as a backup when reading LTC
  • "Bypass" mode removes TCI-50 from the RS-422 data path
  • Local mode emulates a VTR to insert time code into the RS-422 data.
