Katamount Scriptlinc Time Code Clipboard

“The practical solution for time code logging.”  The Scriptlinc is a high-tech clipboard with an integrated wireless receiver and time code reader, created with both script and production notes in mind.

Large LCD numbers and easily accessible buttons make this key task easy to perform accurately without disturbing the rest of the crew.  The complete Scriptlinc system includes a compact light-weight transmitter that can be attached to the sound or video recorder to send the time code to the clipboard reader/receiver, as well as an input cable and soft carry case.  You’ll surely save time on set and in post production with the Scriptlinc time code system.

Features Include:

  • Integrated wireless receiver and timecode reader
  • Automatic frame rate selection
  • 3.5mm (1/8″) input connector for optional hardwired use
  • 19mm (3/4″) high LCD display for excellent visibility
  • Low power consumption (4 AAA cells last 36 hours!)
  • “Hold” buttons freeze the time code display for accurate logging
  • Symmetrical design to allow for right or left-handed use

Using the Scriptlinc:

Connect the transmitter to the time code source (Nagra, DAT, camera or another source) using the supplied BNC to 3.5mm cable. Switch the transmitter and Scriptlinc receiver clipboard on. If SMPTE/EBU LTC time code is present, the display will show the received time code.

To stop the displayed time code when “Action!” or “Cut!” has been called, press either of the HOLD buttons located to the left and right of the display. The display will hold the time code information from the moment you press the button. You do not need to hold the button(s) down to keep the time code display frozen. Once the numbers have been recorded in the time code log sheet, press either of the HOLD buttons again. The display will update to the current time code information.

In problematic high RF areas, if the transmitter is lost or if it is not required, the Scriptlinc clipboard can be hardwired via a 3.5mm connector mounted on the right hand side of the display. This requires the use of a cable.
