Setting the time code

Select the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] menu → [SYSTEM MODE] → [FREQUENCY] → [59.94i]/[59.94p]/[29.97p].

Select the [REC SETTINGS] menu → [TC] → [DF/NDF] → [DF]/[NDF].

[DF]: Advances the time code in the drop frame mode.

[NDF]: Advances the time code in the non-drop frame mode.

Select the [REC SETTINGS] menu → [TC] → [SET TC].

The [SET TC] screen is displayed.

Set the time code.

Confirm the setting value of the time code.

  • The setting value is confirmed when last two digits are set.

Time code function during battery replacement

The operation of the time code generator will continue by the backup mechanism functioning even when replacing the battery.

The time code of the free run may shift when any item in the [SYSTEM SETTINGS] menu → [SYSTEM MODE] is changed. Set the power to < imageicon_power_swich_on > (ON) again, confirm the time code, and set it again if necessary.

Time code with variable frame rate record

The time code is fixed to [REC RUN] when the variable frame rate recording function is set to enable. The time code will advance in the speed corresponding to the ratio setting values of [FREQUENCY] (system frequency) and [FPS] (frame rate).

As an example, the time frame will advance 60/24 frames (two seconds 12 frames) per second when [FREQUENCY] is set to [24.00p] and [FPS] is set to [60fps].

  • The time code output from the <TC IN/OUT> terminal or the <SDI OUT> terminal is advanced in 1x speed from the exact start of recording.
