Details

The Vortex Communications Scriptboy Wireless Time Code System provides a large, clear readout of timecode from the camera at distances of up to 100 metres wirelessly. The small, battery powered transmitter attaches to the camera and is fed with LTC timecode and transmits it to the Vortex Communications Scriptboy clipboard display. The timecode may be EBU, SMPTE dropor non-drop-frame, automatically detected by the Scriptboy system.

The Vortex Communications Scriptboy clipboard receives the transmitted signal, decodes it and displays hours, minutes, seconds and frames on a large, easy-to-read LCD panel with wide viewing angle and anti-glare surface, making it suitable for use in both bright and dim conditions. The displayed timecode reading is frozen by pressing one of the "Hold" buttons, allowing accurate timecode values to be noted on the script held on the clipboard. When the button is released, the display is immediately updated to the current timecode value. For other applications the display may be connected directly to the camera, bypassing the transmit/receive process.
