Click Image to Enlarge

The ES-266U is a Video Time and Date "Inserter" which decodes either ESE or SMPTE Time Code (selectable via an internal DIP switch). Six digits of Time (Hr, Min, Sec) and six digits of Date (Month, Day, Year) are then superimposed onto a video signal looped-thru the unit. On-screen menus allow adjustment of the display Size and Position, Mask Mode (black background on/off and transparent or solid display), Display Mode (Side-by-Side / Stack / Time Only / Date Only), 12/24 Hour mode and Time Zone offset (half-hour increments). The Date may be manually set if receiving time codes which do not provide Date information. The brightness of the Characters and Background may be individually set via front-panel controls. The display may be turned on/off via a front-panel control. An optional RS-232 interface & Windows® Control Panel software may be ordered, which allow remote control of the display modes.
