Book Description

February 1993 0240513347 978-0240513348
Recent radical changes in timecode technology, location shooting and post-production working practices have been brought about by the fragmentation of the television programme making industry and by a dramatic increase in affordable digital transmission and editing equipment and systems.
With the expansion of non-traditional television service producers (cable, satellite and video-on-demand) almost anything hoes as far as shooting and editing formats are concerned.


Timecode: A User's Guide is an indispensable reference for anyone needing to get to grips with the many aspects of timecode, whether in-house or on location.

Taking into account these changes this book has now been brought completely up to date to include:

* timecode and DVD, LTC & VITC in HANC packets in the serial digital TV interfaces
* timecode in IEEE1395 (Firewire)
* timecode and digital video cassettes
* new recording formats of DVD, DV mini cassettes and D6 are included
* 4:3 scanning for wide-screen films - standards updated
* new material to cover new working practices
* new appendices to cover the global LF time data transmissions and time data embedded in BBC transmissions

Advice is also given on avoiding and remedying faults and errors.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not much written about timecode June 18, 2007
Format:Paperback
I professionally work in the field of computer based digital video and know that there simply isn't much written about timecode. This book is a great reference, I have used it to successfully implement VITC and LTC encoders/decoders in software, timecode math libraries and the like. This is the book I refer to and recommend when these often confusing topics arise. I have used the first two editions but have not seen the third. I hope it adds more information about digital production.
