Betso WCTS-1 Timecode Slate

New BETSO WTCS-1 wireless time code slate is carefully designed to meet rising demands on displayed information capability, overall product durability and lightweight and "plug and play" functionality. It is WiFi ready for cooperation with iOS MovieSlate application and has our latest RF transceiver module for wireless transmission of time code and status information. And of course a lot of more cool features to make your work easier.

RF Transmission
Our whole new concept of wireless transmission of time code and status information is ideal for simple on stage workflow control. Each device connected to the network will be continuously jammed from transmitter and on each device you can observe status information of all other devices in the network.

The operating range is up to 500m within the line of sight. The RF protocol incorporates frequency hopping spread spectrum technology approach which ensures robust functionality even in the environment with high RF noise.

When the unit set as receiver is out of the RF range, it keeps generating synced timecode.

All Time Code and Word Clock Formats
The WTCS-1 can receive, precisely jam or start to generate new time codes of all existing SMPTE time code formats.

Also, all commonly used word clock formats are supported, including their pull-up and pull-down optionsAll Time Code and Word Clock Formats.

1" Super-bright graphical LED display with Anti-glare Surface
Ambient light independent time code readouts are guaranteed thanks to a large, 1-inch high, super-bright graphical LED display with a special anti-glare surface that avoids sun reflection. Its brightness can be easily adjusted in ten modes to meet actual light conditions or can be set automatically in relation to actual ambient light conditions thanks to integrated sensor.

Solid and Precise Mechanical Construction with Reduced Weight and Decent Dimensions
During the development phase, special focus was kept on the infield daily use. Therefore the main body is made from very stiff anodized aluminium alloy using CNC milling and laser cutting technologies. This was the only way to get a very robust, but still as small and as lightweight a device as possible.

The highest in quality demands were also put on the details, which led to ball bearing and stiff wood utilization in the arms of the slate and high quality writing sheets.

Advanced Features

  • RF transmission of time code and device status information
  • Factory GPS based calibration of TCXO with better than 0,1ppm accuracy result
  • Jamming calibration feature to copy master's TCXO precision
  • Cross jamming allowes timecode sync between two different framerates
  • Automatic power ON function after active time code detection
  • Can automatically power down after long period withou manipulating with the slate
  • Can flash during each zero frame of each second and also in the frame of clapping
  • Backlight of writing area of the slate
  • Allows to set 180° display rotation for upside down WTCS-1 LED display readout including automatic display rotation
  • Display brightness can be adjusted automatically according to actual ambient light conditions
  • Time code offset adjustment from -10.0 to 10.0 frames with 0.1 frame step
  • Variable user bits settings including preset value, jammed user bits and live external timecode insertion
  • Real time clock option for user bits settings including combinations of year, month, day, hour, minute and second
  • Starts to generate exact UTC time code synchronized all over the world
  • USB connector available for future firmware upgrades
