Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual

INTRODUCTION
The model 5010 Time Code Master is a full function time code
reader/generator system The model 5010 Time Code Master is available
in three versions. The basic 5010 is a dual standard (NTSC/PAL)
combination generator, high speed reader for Linear Time Code (LTC), and
contains a high resolution character inserter which can be delegated to
either the generator or reader. The model 5010-VITC adds Vertical Interval
Time Code (VITC) reading and generating capabilities to the basic 5010.
The 5010-24 is a special purpose time code generator designed to work
24 FPS time code commonly in use with the high definition 1080P/24 video
format. The model 5010-VITC-24 adds Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC)
reading and generating capabilities to the 5010-24. Throughout this
manual, references to the 5010 apply to all versions unless otherwise
indicated.
A 16 digit alphanumeric display can be quickly delegated to show the
required data. Thus, the generator will produce uninterrupted time code
while the reader may be used to recover time code from another tape
without interfering with the generator function.
The 5010’s time code generator can be preset to lock to its REF VIDEO
input source either by simple frame locking as per EIA standard RS-170, or
where a stable RS-170-A source is available, it will colour lock in
accordance with the 4 field NTSC colour sequence. In the PAL standard,
either the 4 field or 8 field sequence may be observed.
When 5010-24 is operating in the 24 FPS standard, it gen locks to a 23.98
FPS reference signal. Where an external 6Hz reference is available, it will
lock such that the 00 frame of each second is coincident with the 6Hz
signal. When the 5010-24 is operating in the NTSC standard it gen locks
to a NTSC reference signal.
In NTSC colour systems operation, with a frame rate of 29.97002618 Hz
where the time of day is used for indexing, the generator may be operated
in the drop frame mode. Special indicators in the front panel display and in
the character inserter indicate that the unit is operating in the drop frame
format.
A frame rate convert mode allows the user to convert between EBU and
SMPTE drop frame code for standards converter applications. In the 501024 version, the rate convert allows the user to convert between 23.98 FPS
and 29.97 non drop frame code for high definition 1080p/24 applications.
Numeric offsets may be applied to the converted numbers to accommodate
standards converter delays.
The 5010 is capable of displaying time/date information in either the
Universal Coordinated Time (UTC) or the local time that has been adjusted
with the appropriate time zone offset from UTC. In local time mode, the
generator encodes the time and date adjusted for the local time zone offset
from UTC. In UTC mode, the generator encodes the UTC time and date

Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
received from the receiver antenna. The reader can be independently set
to display either the local time or UTC. When the generator is set to local
time mode, it can be set to automatically adjust for ‘daylight saving’ or
‘summer time’ time offsets from UTC.
Both the generator and reader are capable of working with the unassigned
user bits. Several modes of operation are possible. The generator may be
preset to insert decimal values for each group in the generated code, and
the reader will read decimal values for each binary group. In addition, the
user may select the transfer of either reader time or reader user bits into
the generator user bits, thus, allowing pre-edit frame addresses to be
preserved when new continuous time code is laid down.
In the time/date mode, the date information will be encoded into the user
bits in one of three formats. The SMPTE 309M standard defines two
methods of encoding date information into the user bits. The YYMMDD
format is designed for compatibility with simple time code readers and
places the year, month and day as BCD digits, along with a time zone
offset code in the user bits. The YYMMDD format does not contain any
century information, but the 5010 assumes that year less than 50 are
interpreted as being in the range 2000 to 2049, while years greater than or
equal are in the range 1950 to 1999. The Modified Julian Date format
should be used where century information is required. In this format the
Modified Julian Date is encoded as a 24 bit binary number in the user bits,
along with the time zone offset code. A third format; compatible with Leitch
master clocks is also supported.
Two jam sync modes allow regeneration of poor, frequently interrupted or
discontinuous time code. In the continuous jam sync mode, the generator
is slaved to the reader, and will follow code discontinuities of the reader.
The generator may also be momentarily synchronized to the reader, and
then it continues to increment normally regardless of the reader code.
The 5010-VITC reader can be configured to operate in one of three modes:
• Full speed (1/30 to 70 times play) LTC reader.
• 0 to 40X speed VITC reader
• Auto LTC/VITC reader automatically switches between LTC and
VITC inputs reading whichever is valid.
The 5010-VITC-24 reader can be configured to operate in one of three
modes:
• Full speed LTC reader. ( 24 and 30 FPS nominal)
• 0 to 40X speed VITC reader (30 FPS only)
• Auto LTC/VITC reader automatically switches between LTC and
VITC inputs reading whichever is valid. ( 30 FPS only)
The recovery of recorded LTC time code at other than play speed has
always presented some degree of difficulty, particularly with low end 3/4"
and 1/2" recorders lacking a separate address track. The high speed
reader in the model 5010 employs sophisticated input conditioning and
clock and data separator circuits to reliably recover LTC over the full shuttle
and wind speed ranges of most VTR's.
INTRODUCTION
Revision 2.3
Page 1-2
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
The VITC reader is designed for use with non time base corrected video
signals. Although the use of time base correctors will enhance the
recovery range of the VITC reader, the amount of improvement is
dependent on the type of TBC and transport being used. The model 5010
contains all the necessary video processing circuits and therefore, requires
no external signals other than the video signal itself. The VITC reader's
line range can be easily programmed from the front panel, thus permitting
recovery of specific VITC data where multiple sets have been recorded.
The high-resolution character inserter provides four independently
positionable windows to show the generator or reader time and user bits
simultaneously. Three character sizes and the choice of white or black
characters with or without contrasting background mask are selected from
the front panel.
When displaying data recovered from a VITC source, the 'look ahead'
compensation can be turned off, allowing field accurate burn-ins of edited
material. The field number sequence will be displayed to the right of the
frames display. When the data being read was recorded in the non colour
frame mode, the field number sequence will be 1,2,1, etc. (1,2,3,4,1, etc.
for PAL). When the reader data was recorded in the colour frame mode,
the field number sequence will be 1,2,3,4,1, etc. (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,1, etc. for
PAL).
The Character inserter provides an on screen programming menu system,
which is used to configure the various operating modes. The use of drop
down menus, and dedicated programming keys, allows the model 5010 to
be conveniently configured for particular customer requirements.
The 5010 has two general purpose outputs that can be set to activate at a
specific time code value of the generator or reader, to output a one pulse
per second pulse or act as a warning tally when the unit loses its GPS
reference. The duration of the output is user programmable.
Remote control of the commonly used functions may be accomplished
using the parallel remote control interface. Full computer control, including
alpha-numeric user bit entry and reading is possible using the RS-232/RS422 serial port. Two general purpose TTL outputs can be programmed for
a variety of functions such as reader or generator triggered time events,
and a loss of genlock alarm.

Items of special note for all users are marked with a double box like this.
DEFINITIONS
LINEAR TIME CODE: A digital code used for timing and control purposes
on video tape and associated audio tape machines. It is
recorded on a longitudinal track with audio characteristics and is
referred to as LTC (Sometimes this code is also referred to as
longitudinal code or SMPTE). Each 80 bit code word is
associated with one television frame, and consists of 26 time
bits, 6 flag bits, 32 user bits and 16 sync bits.
VERTICAL INTERVAL TIME CODE: A digital code used for timing and
control purposes on video tape recorded in the vertical blanking
interval of the video picture, and is referred to as VITC. Each 90
bit code word is associated with one television field, and
consists of 26 time bits, 6 flag bits, 32 user bits, 18 sync bits,
and an 8 bit error check (CRC) code.
USER BITS: 32 bits in the time code are user assignable. They typically
are used to contain reel numbers, scene and take numbers, or
other user-oriented data.
DROP FRAME: In NTSC systems, where the frame rate is 29.97002618
frames per second, the drop frame mode permits time of day
indexing of the frame numbers by dropping certain frame
numbers. Specifically, frames 0, and 1 at the beginning of each
minute except minutes 0,10,20,30,40, & 50, are omitted, to
compensate for an approximate timing error of 108 frames
(3 seconds 18 frames) per hour. A flag bit is set in the time
code to signal when the drop frame mode is in effect.
COLOUR FRAME: If the generator is locked to an RS-170A or 8 field PAL
video signal, and an intentional relationship between the video
colour frame sequence and the time code is desired, the code is
said to be colour framed. A flag bit is set in the code to indicate
this mode. The COLOUR FRAME item on the Generator menu
selects this mode of operation for the generator.
JAM SYNC: Refers to the operation of slaving the generator to data
coming from the reader. Jam sync should be used when
dubbing time code from one tape to another, as the quality of
the time code signal deteriorates with each generation, and will
become unusable after the third generation. Several jam sync
modes can be invoked in the 5010.
INTRODUCTION
Revision 2.3
Page 1-4
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
In the continuous jam sync mode, the generator and reader
times are compared with each other during each frame,
automatically compensating for the decoding offsets. If for any
reason they are not equal, the jam is bypassed, and the
generator substitutes the next frame number. If the number of
consecutive jam bypass errors exceeds 5, the last valid reader
time is jammed into the generator again. In the absence of valid
reader data within the last 5 frames, the generator continues to
increment normally until valid reader code resumes. At this time
it will be re-jammed to the reader, thus repairing large dropouts
on the reader tape. The generator can also be configured to
stop when there is no incoming code. The continuous Jam sync
mode is selected by pressing the SHIFT + JAM keys, and is
indicated when the JAM LED is On.
In the momentary jam sync mode, the reader time is 'jammed'
into the generator for one frame only. The generator continues
to increment normally from that point on, without regard to the
reader frame numbers. The momentary jam sync mode is
selected by pressing the JAM key.
USER BIT TRANSFER: In some applications it may be desirable to
transfer the user bit data from the reader tape, and generate
new time information. In other applications, both the time and
user bit information should be transferred. Both of these
options are available in addition to the normal jam sync and non
jam sync modes.
JULIAN DATE: The Julian day number is a count of days elapsed since
Greenwich mean noon on January 1, 4713B.C. January 1st,
1993, was JD 2448989; January 1st, 2000 will be JD 2451545.
MODIFIED JULIAN DATE (MJD): The Modified Julian Date is a
continuous count of the number of days elapsed since 17
November 1858. It is often more useful than conventional
calendar dates for record keeping over long periods of time,
since the MJD's of two events can easily be subtracted to
determine the time difference in days. Usually, the MJD is
specified as a number with 5 significant digits. As an example,
the MJD for 1 January 1995 is 49718, meaning that this many
days have elapsed between 17 November 1858 and 1 January
1995. The Modified Julian date is calculated by subtracting
2400000.5 days from the Julian Date. Thus the Modified Julian
Day 1 begins at Greenwich midnight.
UNIVERSAL COORDINATED TIME
UNIVERSAL TIME, COORDINATED (UTC): Universal Coordinated Time
(UTC) is an international time standard that defines a time that
doesn't depend on where we are on Earth. Universal Time
(UTC), Greenwich Mean Time (GMT), and Zulu Time (Z), are
based at the prime meridian (0° longitude) of Earth and are
used to avoid confusion of time zones.

INSTALLATION
2.1.
REAR PANEL CONNECTIONS
There are two different versions of the 5010 hardware. Earlier versions
have the rear panel layout shown in Figure 2-1 and later versions have the
rear panel layout shown in Figure 2-2. The labels on the connectors are
mostly the same, but many of the connectors have been relocated to better
suit the layout of the new circuit board. The 5010-VITC and 5010-VITC-24
will have all the connections, the 5010 and 5010-24 will be missing the
VITC input and output BNCs. Installation and operation of the two versions
is similar except where specifically noted.
Figure 2-1: Rear Panel Layout – Earlier versions or 5010
Figure 2-2: Rear Panel Layout – Later Versions of 5010
The following sections describe the purpose of the rear panel connectors of
the model 5010. Figure 2.1 above shows the rear panel connectors

2.2.
MOUNTING
The model 5010 is equipped with rack mounting angles and fits into a
standard 19 inch by 1 3/4 inch (483 mm x 45 mm) rack space. The
mounting angles may be removed if rack mounting is not desired.
2.3.
POWER REQUIREMENTS
2.3.1. Selecting the Correct Mains Voltage
Power requirements are 115 or 230 volts AC at 50 or 60 Hz, switch
selectable on the rear panel. Power should be applied by connecting a 3
wire grounding type power supply cord to the power entry module on the
rear panel. The power cord should be minimum 18 AWG wire size, type
SVT marked VW-1, maximum 2.5 m in length.
!
Before connecting the line power, be sure to select the proper line voltage.
Also, check that the line fuse is rated for the correct value marked on the
rear panel.
The power entry module combines a standard IEC 320 power inlet
connector, voltage selector switch, two 5 x 20 mm fuse holders (one active,
one spare) and an EMI line filter.
To change the mains voltage setting, open the cover of the power entry
module using a small screwdriver. Remove the drum selector switch, and
re-insert it so that the desired voltage is visible through the opening on the
mains connector cover. Check that the correct fuse is in use as shown in
section below.
2.3.2. Changing the Fuse
The fuse holder is located inside the power entry module. To change the
fuse, open the cover of the power entry module using a small screwdriver.
The fuse holder on the bottom contains the active fuse. The one at the top
contains a spare fuse. Pull the bottom fuse holder out and place a fuse of
the correct value in it. Use slo blo (time delay) 5 x 20 mm fuses rated for
250 Volts with the following current ratings:
For 115 Volt operation
For 230 Volt operation
!
INSTALLATION
250 mA
125 mA
Never replace with a fuse of greater value.
Revision 2.3
Page 2-3
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
Make sure that the arrow is pointing down when you replace the fuse
holder. Close the door on the power entry module and connect the mains
voltage.
2.4.
VIDEO CONNECTIONS
2.4.1. Generator Sync Lock – Model 5010 and 5010-VITC
For proper frame/address synchronization in videotape applications, the
generator must be locked to a stable 1 volt p-p composite video or colour
black source, applied to the generator REF VIDEO IN video loop. The
internal sync separator has a high impedance input tapped off the loop
through; therefore, the video signal must be properly terminated at the end
of the line.
When colour frame synchronization is desired, the sync to subcarrier (ScH) phase relationship of the video source must conform to the NTSC RS170-A or the PAL 8 field specification. Selection of the colour framed or
non colour framed mode is accomplished from the front panel. (See
Section 3.5.11) When the video source does not meet the colour frame
specifications, the non colour frame mode must be selected to ensure a
proper generator lock condition.
2.4.2. Generator Sync Lock – Model 5010-24 and 5010-VITC-24
When the 5010-24 is operating in the 24FPS mode, it will gen lock to a
23.98 FPS 625 line sync reference (sometimes referred to as ‘slow PAL’).
The LED labeled 23.98 on the front panel is used to indicate that the
5010-24 is properly genlocked to the 23.98 FPS sync source. When it
operates in the NTSC mode it genlocks to a standard NTSC colour black
reference.
In addition to a normal frame lock to the reference video, the 5010-24’s
time code output can be synchronized to a 6 Hz reference input connected
to pin 7 of the PARALLEL I/O connector. See section 3.for information
about connecting and using the 6 Hz reference.
Both the 23.98 FPS sync and the 6 Hz reference signal are generated by
the Evertz 7750SRG-HD Sync generator Card. See the Evertz web site
(www.evertz.com) for more information.
2.4.3. Character Inserter Video
The input video on which the characters are to be displayed is connected
to the VIDEO CHAR GEN INPUT connector. The video input has an
internal 75 ohm termination.
INSTALLATION
Revision 2.3
Page 2-4
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
The program video with characters inserted is available on the VIDEO
CHAR GEN OUTPUT connector and may be used to drive a preview
monitor or a video recorder. Characters are keyed into the video
connected to the VIDEO CHAR GEN INPUT connector. Size, position, and
style of the character displays are controlled from the on screen
programming menu.
!
In order to use the on screen programming menu system, video must be
applied to the VIDEO CHAR GEN INPUT connector and the VIDEO CHAR
GEN OUTPUT must be connected to a video monitor.
2.4.4. VITC Generator Video In/Out
(model 5010-VITC and 5010-VITC-24 only)
The program video source for the VITC generator is applied to the PGM
Video Input. The video input has an internal 75 ohm termination. Program
video with VITC is available on two separate video outputs. On newer style
units, when the bypass relay option is fitted, the A output is bypass
protected by a relay in the case of power loss to the unit abd the B output
will not be active when the bypass relay is closed.
2.4.5. VITC Reader Video Input
(model 5010-VITC and 5010-VITC-24 only)
Video associated with the LTC code or video with VITC recorded on it is
connected to the READER VITC IN loop. The video input has a high
impedance input tapped off the loop through; therefore the input must be
terminated with 75 ohms at the end of the line.
2.5.
LINEAR TIME CODE IN/OUT
The LTC reader input connects to your head pre-amplifier output. When
using an unbalanced input to the reader, the signal should be applied to pin
3 of the LTC reader input connector. Normally, the unused input, (pin 2)
should be connected to ground (pin 1).
The generator code output is available on an XLR connector at the rear
panel. Output level is adjustable from approximately 0.5 V to 4 V using the
LTC OUT item on the CONFIG menu of the Engineering setup menu
system. (See section 3.4.1) The generator code output should be
connected to the record input of the time code channel or audio track 2 of
your video recorder (audio track 3 for 1" VTR's). Pin 1 of the XLR is
ground, and pins 2 and 3 provide a balanced output.

OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
The model 5010 Time Code Master is a full function time code
reader/generator system. The model 5010 Time Code Master is available
in three versions. The basic 5010 is a dual standard (NTSC/PAL)
combination generator, high speed reader for Linear Time Code (LTC), and
contains a high resolution character inserter which can be delegated to
either the generator or reader. The model 5010-VITC adds Vertical Interval
Time Code (VITC) reading and generating capabilities to the basic 5010.
The 5010-24 is a special purpose time code generator designed to work
24 FPS time code commonly in use with the high definition 1080P/24 video
format. The model 5010-VITC-24 adds Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC)
reading and generating capabilities to the 5010-24.
A 16 digit
alphanumeric display can be quickly delegated to show the required data.
Thus, the generator will produce uninterrupted time code while the reader
may be used to recover time code from another tape without interfering
with the generator function.
The model 5010-VITC’s reader can be configured in one of three modes:
•
•
•
Full speed (1/30 to 70 times play) LTC reader
0 to 15X speed VITC reader
Auto LTC/VITC reader automatically switches between LTC and
VITC inputs reading whichever is valid.
The 5010-VITC-24 reader can be configured to operate in one of three
modes:
• Full speed LTC reader. ( 24 and 30 FPS nominal)
• 0 to 40X speed VITC reader (30 FPS only)
• Auto LTC/VITC reader automatically switches between LTC and
VITC inputs reading whichever is valid. ( 30 FPS only)
The character inserter provides an on screen programming menu system,
which is used to configure the various operating modes. The use of drop
down menus and dedicated programming keys allows the model 5010 to
be conveniently configured for particular customer requirements.

ON SCREEN PROGRAMMING MENU – OVERVIEW
The key to the operational flexibility of the model 5010 lies in the powerful
on screen programming menu system that uses the built in character
generator. This method of configuring the model 5010 is quick, and simple,
guiding you to the correct setup for your application. Six front panel push
buttons (", #, $, %, and SELECT and SETUP) are used to cycle through
the various items on the programming menu.
The 5010 menu system consists of a main menu with three drop down
menus. The titles of each of the drop down menus are shown on the top
line of the character display. Selecting an item on one of the drop down
menus reveals a sub-menu showing the choices for that item. Figure 3.2 is
an overview of the on screen menu system and shows all the menu
choices and where you will find the menu items. Note that some menu
choices will be hidden or show the message NOT APPLICABLE IN
CURRENT MODE depending on the programmed mode of operation.
Abbreviated menu descriptions are also shown on the front panel display,
allowing the menu system to be used without a video monitor.
Figure 3-4 shows an overview of the front panel menu descriptions for the
SETUP menu. When the drop down menu items are selected, they are
shown in UPPERCASE. When the sub menus are selected, they are
shown in lower case.

CONVERT 25 ⇔ 30
The GEN MODE menu item is used to select the type of information that is
contained in the time and user bits of the generator. When the 5010 is not
in the Jam sync mode, the generator Time bits contain time information
entered from the front panel. When the 5010 is in the continuous Jam
Sync mode, the time bits are slaved to the reader time.
TIME DATA configures the user bits for entering numeric data entered
from the front panel.
TIME RDR TIME transfers the reader’s time bits to the generator user bits.
The U/B TRANSFER LED will be on. Transferring reader time
is useful when you want to record new continuous time code
numbers and still retain the original time code numbers for
future reference. When synchronizing audio tape machines to
video recorders, the audio tape time code may be transferred to
the user bits in the new video time code. An alternate method of
enabling the Rdr time to Gen UB transfer is to close the TIMEUB TRANSFER remote control input to ground. (See section 0)
TIME RDR UB transfers the reader’s user bits to the generator time bits.
The U/B TRANSFER LED will be on. Transferring the reader
user bits is used when reader time data previously transferred to
user bits as above, or other user bit information must be
retained when recording new code. When used in conjunction
with the continuous Jam Sync mode, both the time and user bits
will be transferred to the new tape. An alternate method of
enabling the Rdr UB to Gen UB transfer is to close the UB-UB
TRANSFER remote control input to ground. (See section 0)
TIME DATE configures the user bits for entry of date information from the
front panel. The internal time clock of the 5010 runs in UTC
(Universal coordinated time) in this mode, and an optional time
zone offset from UTC can be programmed using the Generator
user bit entry procedure. (See section 3.5.6) The Generator
can be programmed to output either the UTC or Local Time
using the GEN TIME ZONE ADJ menu item. Each time the
UTC time numbers roll through midnight, the date in the user
bits advances by 1 day. The DATE FORMAT menu setting
controls the format used to store the date information in the user
bits.
CONVERT 25 ⇔ 30 sets the 5010 or 5010-VITC into a SMPTE ⇔ EBU
timecode translator mode. This mode is used to convert
timecode in standards converter applications. In translate mode
incoming LTC of the input video standard is converted to
timecode of the output video standard. The generator time is
compared to the LTC reader time. When the two times disagree
by more than the CONVERT WINDOW parameter, the
Generator time is jammed from the reader time, taking into
account the frame numbering differences of SMPTE and EBU

code. The frames run at the normal frame rate of the output
video standard. The JAM LED will come on each time the
Generator resynchronizes to the Reader. A jam sync offset can
be set using the method outlined in section 3.5.5. For
information about using the Convert mode with models 5010-24
and 5010-VITC-24 see section 3.10.2.
&
When translating from SMPTE to EBU code, the input code must be in the
Drop Frame format. When translating from EBU to SMPTE code, the
Generator DROP FRAME mode must be set to DROP FRAME. (See section
3.5.11.)
3.5.2. Configuring the Date Format
DATE FORMAT
YY MM DD
MODIFIED JULIAN
OTHER
The DATE FORMAT menu item is used to select the format of the date
information in the user bits of the generator and reader.
YY MM DD
configures the user bits for date encoding in TT YY MM DD
format. This mode is designed so that simple time code readers
can display the BCD encoded date information in numeric
format.
TT is a time zone offset to be applied to the Hours of the time
YY is the year in BCD format.
When YY is less than 50 the year will be displayed as 20YY
(i.e.: when YY=01 the year will be displayed as 2001).
When YY is greater than 50 the year will be displayed as 19YY
(i.e.: when YY=95 the year will be displayed as 1995).
MM is the month of the year.
DD is the day of the month.
For example: the date August 15, 1994 (no time zone offset) will
be encoded in the user bits as 00 94 08 15.
MODIFIED JULIAN configures the user bits for date encoding in
TT dddddd format. This mode should be used when the
complete date including century is required. Simple readers will
not be able to decode this format.
TT is a time zone offset to be applied to the Hours of the time
ddddd is a 24 bit binary number representing the modified

LOCAL TIME configures the generator to output its time as UTC adjusted
by the programmed Time Zone Offset
3.5.4. Setting the Generator Time
Press the DISPLAY key one or more times to display the generator time if
it is not already displayed. The display prompt will show GTM when
generator time is being displayed. The ENTER and CLEAR keys are used
in conjunction with the numeric keys to set the generator time.
&
When entering time data make sure that the generator is not in the
continuous JAM SYNC mode (indicated when the JAM LED is on). If it is,
press SHIFT + JAM to return to free run mode.
Press the ENTER key to recall the last time that you entered into the
generator. The display prompt at the left of the display will blink while data
entry mode is active, and the dual functioned keys are now changed to
their numeric values. If you want to re-enter this time press the ENTER
key to complete the data entry into the generator time.
Pressing any numeric key will clear the previous value and place the new

encoded into the user bits to allow reading devices to compensate for
various time zones. Time zones are entered as an hour and minute offset,
but are actually encoded in the user bits as a 2-digit code according to the
table 1 in Appendix A.
The leftmost digits of the display will indicate TIME ZONE. The last time
zone you entered will be shown as +/-HH:MM where HH represents the
whole hour time offset and MM indicates the minutes offset for time zones
where there are partial hours. The +/- sign indicates if the time is ahead or
behind UTC. If you want to re-enter this time zone offset, press ENTER.
To change the whole hour offset press the $ or % keys. To change the
partial hour offset press the " or # keys. The 5010 will only allow valid
time zone offsets to be selected. If daylight saving time is observed in your
area, then you should enter the time zone offset for standard time. You
can set up the daylight saving time adjustment using the procedure
outlined in section 3.5.7.
When you have selected the correct time zone offset, press the ENTER
key to complete the data entry process. The numeric keys return to their
normal functions when the data entry has been completed by pressing the
ENTER key or canceled by pressing the CLEAR key. The display prompt
will return to GUB when data entry mode has been completed.
3.5.7. Daylight Saving Time Support
Daylight Saving Time (DST) or Summer Time as it is called in many
countries, is a way of getting more out of the summer days by advancing
the clocks by one hour during the summer. Then, the sun will appear to rise
one hour later in the morning when people are usually asleep anyway, at
the benefit of one hour longer evenings when awake: The sunset and
sunrise are one hour later than during normal time.
To make DST work, the clocks have to be adjusted one hour ahead when
DST begins, and adjusted back one hour to standard time when DST ends.
There are many countries observing DST, and many who do not.
During the months March/April to September/October, the countries in the
Northern Hemisphere are having their summer and may observe DST,
while the countries in the Southern Hemisphere are having winter. During
the rest of the year (September/October to March/April) the countries in the
Southern Hemisphere are having their summer and may observe DST,
while the countries in the Northern Hemisphere are having winter.
Daylight Saving Time is difficult to predict, as many countries change the
transition days/principles every year because of special happenings or
conditions that have happened or will happen.
How does the transition to DST start?
Let's say that DST starts at 2:00 am local time and DST is one hour:

of normal time:

Note that local time between 1:00:00 and 1:59:59 actually is repeated twice
this day, first during DST time, then clocks are turned back one hour to
normal time, and the hour is repeated during standard time and therefore
this day has 25 hours (instead of 24 hours). To avoid confusion when
referring to time within this hour, it is important to tell whether it happened
before of after the change back to normal time. For further information
about daylight saving time in your area consult the web page
http://www.timeanddate.com/time/aboutdst.html.
Because of the variation of daylight saving time rules throughout the world
the 5010 has two registers to allow the user to set the beginning and
ending DST rules. The 5010 makes the following assumptions about DST:
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Revision 2.3
Page 3-21
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
DST changeovers occur at 02:00:00 (2 o’clock AM) on Sunday
morning.
The time advances by 1 hour for DST
3.5.7.1. Setting the Beginning and End of Daylight Saving Time
The DSTBEG and DSTEND registers allow the user to set the Sunday
where the changeover to DST occurs. When the time is later than
02:00:00 standard time on the Sunday set in the DSTBEG register and
earlier than the 02:00:00 Daylight time on the Sunday set in the DSTEND
register the 5010-GPS will automatically add one additional hour to the
time. This adjustment is only made to the time when the GEN TIME
ADJUST menu item is set to Local Time.
To disable automatic
changeovers to DST set the DST BEG and DSTEND registers to the same
week.
&
If DST changeovers occur at other times then the user will have to disable
DST changeovers and manually adjust for the DST change by modifying the
time zone offset at the required time and date.
To access the DSTBEG and DSTEND registers press the
SHIFT+DISPLAY buttons one or more times until the display prompt is
DSTBEG or DSTEND.
The ENTER and CLEAR keys are used in
conjunction with the arrow (↑ and ↓) keys to set the value stored in the
registers.
When the DSTBEG or DSTEND register is being displayed, press the
ENTER key to begin the entry process for the register. Use the up or down
arrow keys to select the Sunday that daylight saving time begins or ends.
You can choose Sunday 1, 2, 3, 4 or L (the last Sunday of the month).
When you choose the last Sunday of the month it will be the 4th or 5th
Sunday depending on whether there are 4 or 5 Sundays in the month for a
particular year. Press the ENTER key again to set the value into the
register.
When the 5010 is displaying daylight saving time on the front panel or
character inserter, the colon (:) that normally occurs between the hours and
minutes digits of the time will be replaced by a period (.). For example:
10:00:00:00 standard time
10.00:00:00 daylight saving time
3.5.8. Jam Syncing the Generator to the Reader
Pressing the JAM key transfers the current reader time into the generator
clock, then releases the clock to run on its own. This mode is known as
‘momentary Jam sync’.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Revision 2.3
Page 3-22
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
The generator time may be continuously slaved, or 'Jam synced' to data
coming from the reader by pressing the SHIFT+JAM keys. The JAM LED
will be on when Jam sync is enabled. Pressing the SHIFT+JAM keys
again terminates the Jam sync mode. An alternate method of controlling
the jam sync mode is to close Jam Sync Enable remote control input to
ground. (See section 3.9.1 for a full description of the parallel remote
control inputs)
Jam sync mode should be used when dubbing longitudinal time code from
one tape to another, as the quality of the time code signal deteriorates with
each generation, and will become unusable after the third generation. In
applications where the 5010 is used to encode VITC during insert editing,
the jam sync mode enables continuous VITC to be recorded on the edit
master tape.
When the time information is being jammed the generator and reader times
are compared with each other during each frame, automatically
compensating for the value programmed into the OFFSET register. If for
any reason they are not equal, the jam is bypassed, and the generator
substitutes the next frame number. The JAM indicator will blink off when a
jam error is encountered. If the number of consecutive jam bypass errors
exceeds 5, the last valid reader time is jammed into the generator again
with the programmed OFFSET. In the absence of valid reader data within
the last 5 frames, the generator operates according to the programmed NO
CODE JAM mode (HOLD = generator stops; RUN = generator increments
normally; or MUTE = generator turns off) until valid reader code resumes.
At this time it will be re-jammed to the reader, thus repairing large dropouts
on the reader tape. (See section 0 for a full description of the NO CODE
JAM modes.)
The OFFSET register for the Continuous Jam Sync mode allows you to
apply a continuous offset between the generator and reader numbers when
you are in continuous Jam sync mode. The value entered into the Offset
register will be added to the reader time before it is jammed into the
generator. Offset values other than 00:00:00:00 usually indicate that the
generator is leading the reader. In order for the generator to lag behind the
reader, enter a value equal to 24:00:00:00 minus the lag offset desired.

In order to Jam sync the generator time to exactly to the reader time make
sure the OFFSET is set 00:00:00:00
To access the OFFSET register press the SHIFT+DISPLAY buttons. The
display prompt will be OFFS. The ENTER and CLEAR keys are used in
conjunction with the numeric keys to set the value stored in the OFFSET
register.
Press the ENTER key to recall the last value that you entered into the
OFFSET register. The display prompt at the left of the display will blink
while data entry mode is active, and the dual functioned keys are now
changed to their numeric values. If you want to re-enter this value press
the ENTER key to complete the data entry.
Pressing any numeric key will clear the previous value and place the new
value into the numeric display, starting at the right. Unentered digits are
assumed to be zero, hence leading zero digits are not required. When the
required number of digits are entered, then press the ENTER key to
complete the data entry.
Attempts to enter too many digits, or make illegal entries, i.e. 65 minutes,
will result in the display returning to the last valid time entry made.
Re-enter the correct value and press the ENTER key. Pressing the
CLEAR key will cancel the data entry mode without changing any data.
The numeric keys return to their normal display functions when the data
entry has been completed by pressing ENTER or canceled by pressing the
CLEAR key. The display prompt will return to its steady On state when
data entry mode has been completed.
The drop frame and colour frame modes of the code being read are
transferred to the generator during jam sync. The formatted modes return
when the Jam sync mode is terminated.

down ($, %) keys to change LINE 1. Press the right (#) key to highlight
LINE 2, indicating that it can be changed. Press the up and down ($, %)
keys to change LINE 2.
The user will have to determine by experience the most suitable lines for
recording VITC according to the following criteria.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Revision 2.3
Page 3-24
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
In order to protect the VITC reading process against dropouts, the VITC is
usually repeated on 2 non-adjacent lines in the vertical interval of the video
signal, not earlier than line 10 (6 for PAL) or later than line 20 (21 for PAL).
For certain recordings, the use of some of these lines may interfere with
other signals inserted into the vertical interval.
To avoid decoding errors, an adequate margin should be allowed between
the video head switching points and the recorded VITC word. Also note
that type C VTRs with a sync head have a head switching point in the
middle of the permitted lines. Type C VTRs without a sync head do not
reproduce some of the permitted lines at all; therefore these lines should
not be used for recording VITC. (See your VTR manual for further
information).
&
It is recommended that two non-adjacent lines be used, however adjacent
lines and a single line (selected when both lines are the same) are permitted.
3.5.10. Turning the VITC Generator On
(models 5010-VITC and 5010-VITC-24 only)
The VITC GEN ON/OFF key is used to turn the VITC keyer on and off.
(You must exit the Setup menu to turn the VITC generator on or off.) When
the VITC generator is Off, the program video passes through the VITC
keyer with nothing added. When the VITC generator is On, the VITC will
be added to the program video.
3.5.11. Selecting the Generator Drop Frame Mode (NTSC only)
In NTSC, the video frame rate of approximately 29.97 frames per second
causes an error between real time and 'colour time'. To overcome this
problem, the drop frame mode was created. This mode compensates for
the approximate 4 minute per day error by dropping the first two frame
counts (0, 1) at the start of each minute, except minutes 0, 10, 20, 30, 40,
and 50. A drop frame flag bit is set in the code when the drop frame format
is used. When the 5010 is operating in the NTSC video standard, the
generator may be programmed to operate in either the drop frame or non
drop frame mode.
DROP FRAME

When the 5010 is operating in the TIME DATE mode in the NTSC video
standard, it should be set to the Drop Frame mode so that it’s time base is as
close as possible to real time.
DROP FRAME
NOT APPLICABLE
When the generator is operated in the continuous Jam Sync mode, the
generator drop frame mode is the same as the incoming Reader data. The
Drop Frame sub menu shows NOT APPLICABLE IN A JAM MODE.
When the 5010 is operating in the PAL video standard, the Drop Frame
sub menu shows NOT APPLICABLE IN PAL.
3.5.12. Selecting the Generator Colour Frame Mode
For proper operation of the 5010 generator, a stable video reference must
be applied to the REF VIDEO input loop on the rear panel. The VIDEO
STANDARD item on the CONFIG menu of the Engineering Setup menu
selects the video standard (NTSC or PAL) that is being used. (See section
0.) The COLOUR FRAME item on the GENERATOR menu is used to
select whether the 5010 will apply colour frame synchronization to the code
it generates.
COLOUR FRAME
2 FIELD
4 FIELD
When the video standard is NTSC:
Select 2 FIELD to configure the generator in the non colour frame mode.
Use this mode when an NTSC RS-170 source is used as the video
reference signal or when you are recording code on a tape recorder which
does not have colour frame circuitry. (E.g. U matic or VHS.)
Select 4 FIELD to configure the generator in the colour frame mode. The
Front panel COL’R indicator will be on and code generated will have the
colour flag bit set. Use this mode when a stable NTSC RS-170A source is
used as the video reference.
When colour frame synchronization is desired, the sync to subcarrier
(Sc-H) phase relationship of the video source must conform to RS-170-A
specification.
COLOUR FRAME
4 FIELD
8 FIELD
When the video standard is PAL:
Select 4 FIELD to configure the generator in the non colour frame mode of
operation. Use this mode when an PAL 4 field source is used as the video
reference signal or when you are recording code on a tape recorder which
does not have colour frame circuitry. (E.g. U matic or VHS).
Select 8 FIELD to configure the generator in the colour frame mode of
operation. The Front panel COL’R indicator will be on and code generated
will have the colour flag bit set. Use this mode when a stable PAL 8 field
source is used as the video reference.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
Revision 2.3
Page 3-26
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
When colour frame synchronization is desired, the sync to subcarrier
(Sc-H) phase relationship of the video source must conform to PAL 8 field
specification.
&
Special precautions should be taken when operating in the Jam sync mode.
When the colour frame mode is selected, and the code from the reader is not
in colour frame mode, the generator will maintain a frame lock only in the
jam sync mode. When the jam sync mode is turned off, the formatted colour
frame mode will be restored.
If the 5010 generator is being operated in the colour frame mode, and the
reader code is in the colour frame mode, the jam sync process will compare
the colour framing of the reader code against the generator. If the colour
framing of the two do not agree, the JAM indicator will flash on and off at a
regular rate. Therefore, if the playback VTR does not have a colour framer
built in the Non colour frame mode of operation should be selected.
3.5.13. Generator Parity Mode Selection
The purpose of the phase correction parity bit (LTC bit 27 in NTSC, 59 in
PAL) is to compensate for phase reversals in the LTC biphase mark
modulation that could occur when code inserts are performed. Use of the
biphase mark parity bit is optional, as some readers may not recognize its
presence.
The LTC PARITY item on the GENERATOR menu controls the parity
mode of the generator.
LTC PARITY

Select OFF to configure the generator for the non parity mode.
biphase mark parity bit will be always set to zero.
The
Select ON to configure the generator for the parity mode. The biphase
mark parity bit will be put in a state where every 80 bit word will contain an
even number of logic zeros, in order that the magnetization transient

in the same direction.
3.5.14. Configuring how the Continuous Jam Mode Works when there
is no Reader Code
NO CODE JAM

continuous if the incoming code is also continuous.
Select HOLD when you want the generator to stop when there is no
incoming Reader code. When the reader code resumes, the generator will
re-jam to the incoming code. Use this mode if you want the output of the
generator to stop on the last number read when you stop the tape machine
supplying the incoming code to the reader.
Select MUTE when you want to turn off the generator when there is no
incoming Reader code. The generator time will stop at the last number
read. When the reader code resumes, the generator will turn on and rejam to the incoming code. Use this mode if you want the output of the
generator to turn off completely when you stop the tape machine supplying
the incoming code to the reader.

method guarantees an 'on time' character display for LTC and also helps to
cover any minor reader disturbances. In some operational modes it is
desirable to disable this feature and to display exactly what is being read.
When reading VITC, it is possible to read and display the information in the
same video field, thus maintaining field accuracy even in DIRECT mode.
The topmost positions of the character generator are not available when in
the direct mode.
Select PROCESSED to enable normal 'look ahead' compensation.
Displays from either the LTC or VITC readers will be 'on time' but will NOT
follow code discontinuities immediately.

3.10. OPERATIONS CHANGES FOR THE MODEL 5010-24 and 5010-VITC-24
The 5010-24 and 5010-VITC-24 models are special purpose time code
generators designed to work 24 FPS time code commonly in use with the
high definition 1080P/24 video format. They have all of the features of the
standard 5010 LTC or 5010-VITC VITC Time Code Master except as noted
below.

VIDEO TYPE
AUTO
NTSC
24 FPS
To configure the 5010-24 for operation in the 24 FPS mode set the VIDEO
STANDARD item on the CONFIG menu to 24FPS. The 5010-24 will also
support normal NTSC genlocking and time code rates when the VIDEO
STANDARD menu item is set to NTSC.
When the 5010-24 is operating in the 24FPS mode, it will genlock to a
23.98 FPS 625 line video or sync reference. The LED labeled 23.98 on the
front panel is used to indicate that the 5010-24 is properly genlocked to the
23.98 FPS sync source. The timecode generated will be non-drop frame.
The reader will read 24 fps time code and can be used to jam sync the
generator.
3.10.2. Selecting the Generator 6 Hz Lock Mode
The 6 HZ LOCK item on the GENERATOR menu is used to select whether
the 5010-24 will apply 6 Hz synchronization to the code it generates.
6 HZ LOCK
OFF
ON
Select OFF to configure the generator in the frame lock mode. In this
mode the generator will only be frame locked to the reference vide input.
Select ON to configure the generator in the 6 Hz Lock mode. You must
supply a 6 Hz coincidence pulse to pin 7 of the PARALLEL REMOTE
connector. This pulse must be a 1/30th second wide active high (TTL level)
pulse occurring 6 times per second and will normally identify the begging of
the field where 23.98 and 29.97 FPS video coincide. This 6 Hz pulse must
be coincident with the start of an input frame and can be generated using
the Evertz 7700SRG-HD Slave Reference Generator module. The Front
panel 6 Hz indicator will be On and code generated will have frame zero of
each second occurring at the same time as the 6 Hz pulse.
The 23.98 FPS suync and 6 HZ pulses can be generated by the Evertz
7750SRG-HD sync generator module.
See the Evertz web site
(www.evertz.com) for more information.
3.10.3. 24 ! 30 Timecode Translator Mode
The 5010-24 can be operated in a 24 ! 30 timecode translator mode. In
translator mode incoming LTC in the input video standard is converted to
timecode in the output video standard. The 5010-VITC-24 can also
translate from NTSC VITC to 23.93 FPS time code. The 5010-24 must be
gen locked to a video signal in the output video standard. The hours,
minutes and seconds of the output code are jam synced to the input code.
The generator frames run at the normal frame rate of the output video
standard.
The 5010-24 OFFSET register can be used to enter a frame offset to
account for frame delays in the standards converter.

CONVERT 24 ! 30 sets the 5010-24 into a 24 ! 30 timecode translator
mode. This mode is used to convert timecode in standards
converter applications. In translate mode incoming LTC of the
input video standard is converted to timecode of the output
video standard. The generator time is compared to the LTC
reader time. When the two times disagree by more than the
CONVERT WINDOW parameter, the Generator time is jammed
from the reader time, taking into account the frame numbering
differences of 24 FPS and 30 FPS code. The frames run at the
normal frame rate of the output video standard. The JAM LED
will come on each time the Generator resynchronizes to the
Reader. A jam sync offset can be set using the method outlined
in section 3.5.5 of the 5010 manual
When translating from 30 to 24 FPS code, the input code must be in the Non Drop Frame
format. When translating from 24 to 30 FPS code, the Generator DROP FRAME mode must
be set to NON DROP FRAME. (See section 3.5.11.)

The communications protocol is described in Figure 4-1. The 5010 (Device) immediately enters the
select state upon power-up and remains there unless directed by an Enter Broadcast Cmd (02 hex) to
the broadcast communications state. The diagram shows the various states of the device. The
designation R( ) indicates the data received from the controller, while the designation T( ) indicates the
data transmitted by the Device.
4.3.
MESSAGE BLOCK FORMAT
Once communications have been established command messages may be sent to the Device.
Each control message starts with the STX character and ends with a checksum. The message blocks
are structured as follows:
STX
STX
BYTE COUNT
MESSAGE
CHECKSUM
BYTE COUNT
MESSAGE
CHECKSUM
start of message character (02 hex)
count of command message not including the STX, BYTE COUNT or CHECKSUM.
variable length command message.
the two's complement of the one byte sum of the MESSAGE and the BYTE COUNT.
REMOTE CONTROL PROTOCOL
Revision 2.3
Page 4-3
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
The purpose of the checksum is to verify that all the bytes in the message that contain variable data
have been received properly. The STX is the only byte that has a fixed value, so it is the only byte not
included in the checksum calculation. The checksum is calculated by adding all the variable bytes
together. The least significant byte of this sum is then subtracted from 100 hex to compute the
checksum. To verify that the checksum is computed correctly, add all the bytes including the
checksum but excluding the STX together. The least significant byte of the sum should be zero if the
checksum is computed correctly.
The MESSAGE consists of a command and optional bytes of data and is structured as follows:
COMMAND
COMMAND
DATA 1...DATA n
DATA 1
.....
DATA n
single byte command directed to device.
variable length, any arguments required by COMMAND.
If the command message was not accepted by the Device due to a checksum error, parity error or an
invalid command the Device will respond with an NAK (05 hex) character and re-enter the SELECT
state.
If the command message is accepted by the Device and there is no data response required, it will
respond with an ACK (04 hex) character and re-enter the SELECT state.
If the command message requires a data response, the Device will transmit a response message
structured as follows:
STX
BYTE COUNT
COMMAND ECHO
MESSAGE
CHECKSUM
start of message character (02 hex)
count of response message not including STX, BYTE COUNT or CHECKSUM.
Command message echoed
variable length response message consisting of the data requested by the
command message.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
5.1.
OVERVIEW
The Model 5010 LTC/VITC Timecode Generator/Reader combines the
latest LSI technology with sophisticated microcontroller firmware to provide
a powerful, flexible time code reader system. The model 5010 Time Code
Master is available in three versions. The basic 5010 is a dual standard
(NTSC/PAL) combination generator, high speed reader for Linear Time
Code (LTC), and contains a high resolution character inserter which can be
delegated to either the generator or reader. The model 5010-VITC adds
Vertical Interval Time Code (VITC) reading and generating capabilities to
the basic 5010. The 5010-24 is a special purpose time code generator
designed to work 24 FPS time code commonly in use with the high
definition 1080P/24 video format. The model 5010-VITC-24 adds Vertical
Interval Time Code (VITC) reading and generating capabilities to the
5010-24. A 16 digit alphanumeric display can be quickly delegated to show
the required data. Thus, the generator will produce uninterrupted time
code while the reader may be used to recover time code from another tape
without interfering with the generator function.
The model 5010-VITC’s reader can be configured in one of three modes:
!
!
!
Full speed (1/30 to 70 times play) LTC reader
0 to 15X speed VITC reader
Auto LTC/VITC reader automatically switches between LTC
and VITC inputs reading whichever is valid.
The character inserter provides an on screen programming menu system,
which is used to configure the various operating modes. The use of drop
down menus and dedicated programming keys allows the model 5010 to
be conveniently configured for particular customer requirements.
There are two different versions of the 5010 hardware. Earlier versions
have the rear panel layout shown in Figure 2-1 and have a 5200 main
circuit card inside and an optional 5235 submodule for the 5010-VITC
model. Later versions have the rear panel layout shown in Figure 2-2 and
have a 7700STM circuit card inside. The labels on the connectors are
mostly the same, but many of the connectors have been relocated to better
suit the layout of the new circuit board. The operation of the two versions
is similar except where specifically notes in chapter 3. Section 5.2
describes the DIP switch functions, section 5.3 described the user
calibrations and section 5.4 describes the method of updating to a new
firmware version.

DIP SWITCH FUNCTIONS
The main circuit board of the model 5010 contains an 8 position DIP switch
which is used to invoke various diagnostic and calibration functions. On
The 5200 main circuit card the DIP switch is closed when it is pressed
down on the right side. On the 7700STM main circuit card the switch is
closed when it is pressed down closest to the circuit card. The functions of
each switch are described below.

5.3.2. Calibrating the VITC Generator Keyer
(models 5010-VITC and 5010-VITC-24 only)
To calibrate the VITC Generator’s video keyer, connect colour bars from
your sync generator to the VITC Gen Video input the 5010-VITC or
5010-VITC-24 and to channel A of your oscilloscope. Connect the video
output to channel B of your scope and terminate it. Adjust the VGAIN
trimpot R122 on 7700STM board (GAIN trimpot VR2 on 5235 sub board)
so that the output amplitude matches the input. Adjust the VTC LVL
trimpot R117 on the 7700STM board (LEVEL trimpot VR1 on 5235 sub
board) so that the inserted VITC/characters are approximately 550
millivolts above video black level.
5.3.3. Calibrating the Character Generator
To calibrate the video keyer, connect colour bars from your sync generator
to the Reader Video input loop of the model 5010 and to channel A of your
oscilloscope and terminate it. Connect the character generator video
output of the model 5010 to channel B of your scope and terminate it.
Adjust the GAIN A trimpot R120 for VITC output A or GAIN B trimpot R173
for VITC output B (GAIN trimpot VR3 on 5200 board) so that the output
amplitude matches the input. Adjust the CHR LVL trimpot R211 on the
7700STM board (CHAR LEVEL trimpot VR2 on 5200 board) so that the
inserted characters are approximately at the peak white video level.
The starting position of the characters at the left of the screen is adjusted
by trimpot R105 on the 7700STM board (VR1 on the 5200 board). The
horizontal character size is set in software using the HORIZONTAL SIZE
menu item on the Engineering Setup menu.
5.3.4. Calibrating the Colour Frame Detection Circuit
Calibration of the colour frame detector is accomplished in software.
Separate calibration values are maintained in the 5010’s nonvolatile
memory for PAL and NTSC. The colour frame circuitry is calibrated at the
factory and should not require any field calibration. If you do need to
calibrate the colour frame detector, use the following procedure. To enable

adjustment of the NOVPOT, you need set DIP switch 1 on the main circuit
board to the On (Closed) position. The front panel display will show a
display similar to:
COLFRM POT N : 10 for NTSC or
COLFRM POT P : 10 for PAL
When this message is displayed, the rightmost digits of the display indicate
the value of the digital potentiometer (NOVPOT) used to calibrate the
colour framer. The numbers do not have any absolute meaning, but are
only a reference used in calibration. Use the # key to adjust the NOVPOT
value up and the " key to adjust the NOVPOT value down.
The generator REF VIDEO input must be connected to an RS-170-A NTSC
or an 8 field PAL video source and properly terminated. The unit must also
be set up to operate in the colour frame mode. This is accomplished by
using the COLOUR FRAME menu item of the Setup menus. Select 4
FIELD for NTSC or 8 FIELD for PAL.
Your will need a sync pulse generator with a colour field #1 identification
pulse output and a dual channel oscilloscope to perform the calibration.
1.
Display the colour field #1 ID pulse from your sync generator on
channel A of your oscilloscope. Set up the time base to show
two pulses (usually 20 msec / div.). Set up your oscilloscope to
trigger from channel A.
2.
Connect channel B of your scope to test point ALM located near
integrated circuit U9 on the 7700STM board (test point ALARM
located near integrated circuit U25 on the 5200 board).
3.
Use the " key on the 5010 to adjust the NOVPOT down to its
lowest value. Gradually increase the NOVPOT value using the
# key until a pulse appears on channel B of your scope. This
pulse should be approximately one video field in length and
should occur in field 7 for PAL and field 3 for NTSC. The pulse
on channel B should be two fields before the second pulse of
channel A. See Figure 5-6 for PAL and Figure 5-7 for NTSC.
Write down the NOVPOT value where the pulse first appears
correctly.

Continue adjusting the NOVPOT value up until the pulse on
channel B disappears. Write down the NOVPOT value where
the pulse first disappears.
5.
Using the " key adjust the NOVPOT value down until it is at the
mid point between the upper and lower values. For example: If
the upper value is 15 and the lower value is 8, set the NOVPOT
to 11. The COL’R LED should be On.

UPDATING TO A NEW FIRMWARE VERSION
The 5010 is equipped with an electrically erasable and re-programmable
program memory device called a FLASH PROM. We will supply the
software upgrade to you on floppy disk, or you may download the current
version from our ftp site (http://www.evertz.com/ftp). This device may be
reprogrammed by downloading the new firmware to the 5010 using a
computer. This facilitates firmware upgrades in the field.
&
The 5010 serial port is configured at the factory as an RS-232 port. If you
have changed the internal jumpers to configure it as an RS-422 port, these
must be changed back to the RS-232 position before connecting it to a
standard PC COM port. When you are done programming you must return
the jumpers to the original position for RS-422 operation.
The internal jumpers inside the unit are different depending on the version
of the 5010 hardware that you have. Section 5.4.1 gives instructions for
setting the jumpers for the earlier version of the 5010 units with the rear
panel shown in figure 2-1. Section 5.4.2 gives instructions for setting the
jumpers for the newer version of the 5010 with the rear panel shown in
figure 2-2.
5.4.1. Configuring the Serial Port Jumpers - Original 5010
Disconnect the power from the 5010. Disconnect the antenna cable from
the Serial I/O connector and remove the top cover or the unit. On the 5200
main circuit card, jumpers JP12 and JP5 are used to configure the serial
port. Set the jumpers as shown in Figure 5-5 to configure the 5010 for
firmware upgrading.

5.4.3. Upgrading The Firmware
1.
Connect the 5010 to the computer’s serial port using the cable
described in section 5.4.1 or 5.4.2. Most computers have two
serial communications ports (known as COM1 and COM2). If
you have both serial ports available, connect the 5010 to COM1.
2.
If you received the firmware update on floppy disk, insert the
reprogramming diskette in the drive of the computer. Change
directories to the root of the reprogramming diskette’s drive
(A: or B:)
If you downloaded the firmware from our Firmware FTP site,
change to the directory of your hard disk where you have the
upgrade files located. The upgrade files you downloaded have
been compressed in the Zip format and will need to be
expanded before you can proceed. Expand the upgrade files
into this directory by running the WinZip utility (available from
our FTP site)
3.
To set up the 5010 for programming at 38400 baud hold down
the # key while you apply power to the 5010. When the 5010
completes its boot-up sequence, the front panel will display
LOAD FLASH - 38400. The default baud rate for
reprogramming is 38400.
To set up the 5010 for programming at 9600 baud hold down
the " key while you apply power to the 5010. When the 5010
completes its boot-up sequence, the front panel will display
LOAD FLASH - 9600
4.
The 5010 firmware is contained in an Intel HEX format file. The
chart below shows the correct HEX file to load for the 5010
version you have.

A Flash Loader software utility (called FL.EXE) was provided
along with the upgrade files you received. This utility uploads
the HEX file to the 5010. Run FL.EXE, with the appropriate
'.hex' file as the first argument. For example:
FL AG57A1.HEX
This will run the Flash loader program in its default
configuration: COM1, 38400 baud, software flow control.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION
Revision 2.3
Page 5-9
Model 5010 Time Code Master Manual
If you connected the computer using COM2 you will need to
use additional command line parameter to specify the COM port
as follows:
FL AG57A1.HEX /p2
If you set up the 5010 for programming at 9600 baud you will
need to use additional command line parameter to specify the
baud rate as follows:
FL AG57A1.HEX /b9600
Entering the FL with no file name will generate a usage
message to show you all the available options for the Flash
Loader program.
5.
The Flash Loader will announce that it is erasing the FLASH
PROM.
The 5010 front panel display will show FLASH
ERASING...
6.
When the Flash PROM is erased, the Flash loader will start to
send the new firmware to the 5010. The Flash loader will give a
status report as it sends each line of the HEX file to the 5010.
During programming the 5010 front panel display will show
LOADING - XXXXX. The XXXXX will be the actual PROM
address currently being programmed.
7.
If there are programming errors an appropriate message will be
shown on the 5010 front panel. You will need to abort the Flash
loader program by pressing the ALT+x keys on your computer
keyboard. (Hold the ALT key down while pressing the x key.)
Repeat steps 3 to 6 to try to correct the problem. If you still
have trouble, try programming at 9600 baud.
8.
The reprogramming will be complete when the Flash Loader
announces "Hex file transmitted successfully" and returns you to
the DOS prompt. The 5010 will automatically switch to its
FLASH program memory if programming is successful. As a
part of the 5010 boot-up cycle it will say SWITCH TO FLASH to
indicate that it is running on the FLASH EPROM now.
