The TCD-1 Small self-powered compact Time Code Display from Betso is a small compact, self-powered solution for displaying time code. It supports all frame rates and detects frame rates automatically. Menu-based settings allow the quick set-up of brightness, internal battery, and external source voltage readout (for a simple check of cart or bag power). Besides other features, Betso has also implemented special power-saving modes. The TCD-1 is made from lightweight aluminum alloy by precise CNC milling and laser cutting. With its small dimensions and lightweight, it is ideal for portable use.

Typical application examples would be mounted on an audio bag or sound cart for multiple camera shoots without distracting clapper board, for video playback shoots, in a post-production studio, and many more. It integrates very well with other BETSO time code products for an even broader variety of applications.
