Does anyone know how to output LTC time in VITC on playback? I have edited tapes with discontinuous VITC which are causing problems when ingesting into a video server system which only reads the VITC. I have heard it's possible, but cannot find the menu settings. Thanks
I would be impressed if there was a setting. VITC is encoded in the video track - the machine would have to block those lines (which it can do via menu setting) and then regenerate new video on those lines only with new VITC. I think there might be outboard gear that could do it, but I've never heard it being built-in to the SRs or any VTR.
You might try setting the "blank lines" menu setting to block VITC on output and see if your ingest can figure out what to do from there.
