VTR Timecode

The VTR Timecode overlay displays the timecode of the VTR, DDR, Video Server, or other external device that is on-air and/or will be transitioned on-air. The device must be controlled from the switcher in order for the timecode information to be available.

By default, the timecode is red if it is on-air, yellow if it is selected, but not on-air, and gray if it is not selected or on-air. Only two timecodes can be displayed at the same time on the preview overlay.

The VTR Timecode overlay is made up of three elements, the video source of the clip, the on-air status, the timecode of the clip, or time remaining in the clip. The timecode or the time remaining can be shown, depending on how the VTR POL Displays features are set.
