LTC Time Code Reader Mk II (bottom)
This is an SMPTE LTC (Longitudinal TimeCode) reader podule for use with Acorn computers such as A5000 and Risc PC using a standard Acorn podule connector. The card requires an OTARI I-OO55 LTC chip to be added to the IC 6 socket on the board before it can actually be used to read code.
I am not sure who the manufacturer of this card is. The only evidence is that both the module and card appear to come from "LTC". However I suspect LTC actually means Linear (or Longitudinal) Timecode which encodes SMPTE timecode data.
SMPTE timecode is a set of standards to label individual frames of video or film with a timecode. Timecodes are added to film, video or audio material, and have also been used to synchronise music. They provide a time reference for editing, synchonisation and identification. Timecode is a form of media metadata.
I have no documentation or software for the LTV Time Code Reader MkII.
