Time code/user bits

Time code
The time code is used when the time code signal generated
by the time code generator (time code signal generator) is to
be recorded on the tape, its values are to be read by the time
code reader (time code signal reader), and the absolute
position of the tape is to be displayed in increments of hours,
minutes, seconds and frames.
The time code is written in the sub-code area (data area) of
the helical track. The VTR's playback speed can be read
from the stop mode to slow-motion playback up to high-
speed play (approx. 50 a normal speed approx. 100 a when
using DVCPRO tape).
The time code values are indicated using the display and
superimpose functions.
