Time code manufacturer Horita recently provided its time code system to synchronize recorders at a fishing tournament on Lake Okeechobee in south-central Fla.

The Horita PTG and PG 2100 mini portable time code generators provided a solution to the 50-mile difference in locations of cameramen and production crews.

Both the PTG and PG 2100 can generate a longitudinal time code at 24, 25, 29.97 and 30fps. The generators can be set to a master time code or manually preset and run.

The PTG was used as the master time code for the PG 2100 generators which were then sent in the field with each recorder, providing the same time code to each unit to provide precise imaging matching when the tapes were brought back to post production.

Horita, based in Mission Viejo, Calif. has been developing SMPTE/EBU time code products for 18 years.
