The HD-488E is a Time Code Reader, Generator and Inserter for HD (High Definition) Serial Digital Interface (SDI) video. Linear Time Code (LTC) and RP-188 Time Code are both read and generated by the HD-488E. The unit accepts a multitude of HD formats. The inserter mode provides the ability to superimpose time and/or user bits onto video with alphanumeric characters. As many as thirty characters of text may also be superimposed onto the video. Flexibility is also provided to the user, allowing for selection of the information to be displayed (time, time and user bits or text) on up to three different windows. The three windows are independent of each other and may be blanked.

The HD-488E is an enhanced version of the HD-488. New features include selectable color fonts, selectable onscreen date formats and front-panel entry of user text data.
