Click Image to Enlarge

The ES-206U is a Video Time and Date "Inserter" which references an internal stand-alone clock. The clock is line-frequency referenced although an internal DIP switch allows selection of a crystal timebase reference instead. Six digits of Time (Hr, Min, Sec) and six digits of Date (Month, Day, Year) are superimposed onto a video signal looped-thru the unit. On-screen menus allow time setting, adjustment of the display Size and Position, Mask Mode (black background on/off and transparent or solid display), Display Mode (Side-by-Side / Stack / Time Only / Date Only), 12/24 Hour mode and Auto Daylight Saving mode. The brightness of the Characters and Background may be individually set via front-panel controls. The display may be turned on/off via a front-panel control. An optional RS-232 interface & Windows® Control Panel software may be ordered, which allow remote control of the display modes.
