RME TCO FF FIREFACE 800 TIME CODE OPTION MODULE
Optional card for FIREFACE 800
The new TCO-FF adds time code capabilities to FIREFACE 800. The TCO can be used for clock generation and sync/chase with LTC. The TCO-FF is an optional card for FIREFACE 800.
The TCO derives a stable word clock signal from Video, LTC and word clock sources. This allows connection and sample-accurate synchronisation of various audio and video applications with time code information.
LTC can be derived and generated in all common formats, i.e. 24, 25, 30, and 29.97 frames; drop-frame or non-drop-frame.
Commonly used Pull-Up- und Pull-Down Formats (+/- 0.1% und +/- 4%) can be utilised, and PAL and NTSC video formats will be automatically detected and processed.
The generated Time Code can be sent to the audio or video application as ASIO Positioning Protocol (APP) or MTC. An application can send APP or MTC to the TCO, which will generate LTC on hardware level with lowest jitter (no software/driver routine)
