GR-2 Time Code Generator / Reader

The GR-2 is a precision time code generator/reader designed for production sound recording. Low power consumption with back lighting assures users of long battery life in a small reliable package.


  • READ - Reads SMPTE/EBU timecode at normal operating speeds. Displays timecode, user bits, and frame rate.
  • CLOCK - Internal clock time (24 Hr), date (Day\Month, Month\Day). The internal clock is used to set the timecode clock at turn on.
  • DISPLAY - The display is a two-line, 12-digit low-power LCD module that shows timecode/user bits, mode and rate. The user can turn the backlight on or off.
  • GEN - Generate timecode at 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97, 30-drop and non-drop.
  • JAM - Jam syncs to external code and can cross-jam different code rates. In JC mode, any break in code will jam to a new value.
  • GU - Inserts externally read timecode into the user bits of the current internal timecode. This is useful for music playback with live action recording.
  • HOLD - Ability to hold the timecode display. The timecode clock and output do not stop while in hold mode.
  • DELTA - Displays a comparison of the internal timecode to external timecode.
