Does anyone know of an HD-SDI de-embedder/extractor/demuxer/reader that can pull the embedded SMPTE timecode from an HD-SDI signal and spit out LTC timecode? It would be a simple little black box… SDI input (maybe with an SDI loop out) and an LTC output by means of a 1/4″ plug or BNC spigot or similarly common TC output connector.
I’m surprised AJA doesn’t have a little “gray” box that does this… seems pretty straight forward and they’d be the company to make such a quality device.
Searching the net for days has yielded very little results. The closest I found was this…
but at a cost of about $3350, I don’t think I’ll be going that route.
Anyone have any idears?

What about the Horita box….this takes the RS422 output of the Kona card or deck and spits out an LTC audio channel. This is how I make timecode matching dubs from HDV to DVCProHD via the Convergent designs M1 box.
I think it is the TG-50. Horita is the timecode conversion/extraction company. Oh, and blackburst generators.

[Marco Solorio] “Key word *little* gray box!”
Yeah, it’s a bit bigger than little. But for around the same price as the other one you mentioned, it does so much more! 😀

We do this in RaveHD but it’s much bigger than a bread box 🙂 Best of luck in your quest.

Thanks Jon… I actually emailed them over the weekend! They said they might come up with such a device later this year. No luck for now though. =(
I also emailed a couple of other manufacturers, including Markertek to see if they knew of anything… so far no response. :-/
