I say yes because of the following when you don’t have a separate timecode system like Timecode Buddy, Ambient Lockit or Tentacle Sync
To understand what is a frame in regrads to time code? we first need to understand there are several varieties of Time Code used across the world and they consist of two variables which I have outlined below:
VITC, which stands for Vertical Interval Time Code (abbreviated VITC and sometimes pronounced VIHT-see) is data which is encoded into the blank “vertical interval” between video frames.
LTC stands for Longitudinal Time Code. This is a audio signal which transmits a series of square waves from a “Master” device. The Master device would be the main device you are running the timecode from, this could be from mixer to camera or separate timecode box to a mixer or camera.
Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers. This is the body that developed this standard. You will find this is a rule for many standard like digital being AES, Audio Engineering Society.
There are many different Audio Cable Types that you may need for sound work. Lets take a look at the different types of timecode connectors you may need for connecting / jamming timecode to a camera or other device.
