The HD-488 is a Time Code Reader, Generator and inserter for HD (High Definition) Serial Digital Interface (SDI) video. Linear Time Code (LTC) and RP-188 Time Code are both read and generated by the HD-488. The unit also accepts a multitude of HD formats. The inserter mode provides the ability to superimpose time and/or user bits onto video with alphanumeric characters. As many as 30 characters of text may also be superimposed onto the video. Flexibility is also provided to the user, allowing for selection of the information to be displayed (time, time and user bits or text) on up to three different windows. The three windows are independent of each other and may be blanked.

The video input and output are accessible via rear mounted BNC connectors. The unit is housed in a 1RU rack mount enclosure which is black anodized.

A 16x2 character LCD shows the current time and status of the HD-488. The front panel controls allow access to all configuration settings as displayed on the 16x2 character LCD. The same controls are available on the PC software which is accessible via the rear mounted USB port.
