The Marenius LTC-GEN is a linear time code generator encoding SMPTE time code into an audio signal. A very accurate 0.5ppm crystal oscillator is used to ensure time code accuracy for at least 8 hours.
The device is able to read and jam to an external time code signal. LTC-GEN supports cross-jamming between different frame rates. An extremely wide viewing-angle and very clear OLED display is used for time code display, menus and information. LTC-GEN can be powered from standard LR03 (AAA type) batteries and/or an external 5-15V power supply. A supercap is used instead of a traditional backup battery for real time clock and LTC, meaning no internal battery needs to be replaced. A LED is used to indicate operation when the OLED is turned off. The crystal is voltage tuned at the time of the manufacturing of the device. The LTC-GEN is housed in a heavy duty aluminum cabinet.
