About: Denecke TC-1 Time Code Reader

The Denecke Dcode® TC-1 Time Code Reader opens the world of time code to film editing at a fraction of the cost of other systems. Using time coded film dailies, editors working directly with film can use the TC-1 to assist then in syncing, making high speed searches, logging, and keeping accurate time-date records of the actual production.

The TC-1 reads SMPTE or EBU time code from VTRs, videocassette recorders, film editing machines and film synchronizers from 1/50th to 50 times speed in both forward and reverse. For transferring 1/4” tape to mag film, it cleans up (reshapes) time code while generating 60Hz sync pulse from either 24 or 30fps time code. Potential users include film and television production companies, transfer houses, and music studios.

  • READS SMPTE/EBU TIME CODE from 1/50th to 50x speed in both forward and reverse.
  • DISPLAYS time code in hours, minutes, seconds, and frames. Color flag and drop frame are also included. Future flags are displayed in the unused decimal points. User Bits are displayed in full hexadecimal in the “U” position.
  • HOLD Instantly freezes the display when pressed and has an LED above “H” when “HOLD” is on.
  • SIGNAL STATUS is displayed above “S.” When the LED is lit, it indicates a “no signal” condition.
  • RESHAPED CODE FOR COPYING is accessible through the output connector in the rear.
