LTC can be derived and generated in all common formats, i.e. 24, 25, 30, and 29.97 frames; drop-frame or non-dropframe. Commonly used Pull-Up- and Pull-Down Formats (+/- 0.1% and +/- 4%) can be utilised, and PAL and NTSC video formats will be automatically detected and processed.
The received Time Code can be sent to the audio or video application as ASIO Positioning Protocol (APP) or MTC. An application can send APP or MTC to the TCO, which will generate LTC on hardware level with lowest jitter (no software/driver routine). Several fly-wheel functions facilitate chase operation (adjustable drop-out length, Continuous- or Jam-Sync).
Under Windows XP the HDSP provides the SMPTE position as APP (ASIO Positioning Protocol) and as MTC Sync. Under Mac OS X the TCO-FF provides the SMPTE position as MTC Sync.
The TCO has a combined switchable Word Clock/Video input (BNC) as well as an LTC input (BNC). The Word Clock / Video input on the card can comfortably be terminated (relay-controlled) with a 75 Ohm terminator from the settings dialog.
The TCO also features an additional LTC output (BNC) with two level settings (configurable via jumper).
