The HD-266/SD/1 is an HD & SD Time Code Driven Time & Date Video Inserter. The unit reads ESE Time Code, ESE Timer Code, SMPTE-LTC / EBU (at play speed only), D-VITC or RP-188 and synchronizes its internal real-time clock to the time code reference. The time is inserted onto an SDI video signal. Additionally, up to 30 characters of user defined text may be inserted into the video. Two independent character windows are available and can be used to insert Time, Date, Time & Date and/or User Defined Text. If using ESE Time code from a Timer product, the unit will automatically switch to Timer display if one of the Time/Date formats are selected. Ten different font sizes are available and the characters may be located anywhere on the video using the horizontal & vertical controls. Included font colors are Grayscale along with six solid colors (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue & Violet).

The unit is easily configured using the front panel controls or the front panel mounted USB port with the supplied PC software. The front panel controls consist of four push buttons used to navigate the various setup menus that are displayed on a 16 x 2 character LCD display. The USB port and the PC software provide a user-friendly GUI (Graphical User Interface) used to configure the unit.

The HD-266/SD/1 may be ordered with up to six independent video channels. Additionally, versions that read other timecodes are available. For example, the HD-455/SD/1 reads and displays SMPTE/EBU Timecode with Frame Data for editing purposes or SMPTE Timer Display, and the HD-275/SD/1 reads IRIG timecode. Please reference our Video Products Family for a complete list of the digital & analog video insertion products avaliable.

NOTE: If using SMPTE Up/Down Timer Code, for instance from the ES-466E: SMPTE Pre-Settable Up/Down Timer, please order the HD-455/SD/1.
