Precision Timing Systems


Precision Timing Systems

The Inter-Range Instrumentation Group, known by the abbreviation IRIG, first developed timecodes in the late 1950's. Since 1960, they have been used across the world so that engineers can pin point exactly when an event happened, compare measurement, and synchronise recordings.

Precision Time Protocol (PTP) first emerged in 2002 as a protocol used to synchronise clocks through a computer network. With an accuracy in the sub-microsecond level it has become a suitable tool for networked instrumentation as well as finding acceptance within the financial services and mobile phone industries.

From IRIG time source generators, displays and IRIG video inserters we have a solution to ensure your data and video is in sync.


Precision Timing Systems - HD Video and Data Insertion System

Overlay or insert IRIG time, data, text & graphics into multiple video streams as required. Systems are available to be installed as rack-mount units, vehicle and airframe mount.


Precision Timing Systems - HD-SDI Video Inserter - Recorder

Overlay or insert IRIG time, data, text & graphics into HD-SDI video, record, and playback uncompressed HD-SDI video with the unique model 6250 from ITS. Both 19" rackmount and vehicle mounts available.


Precision Timing Systems - IRIG Time Code Generators

A series of GPS synchronised IRIG B time code generators designed to provide a precise IRIG B serial time code output. Miniaturized, hand-held, ruggedized and PCI-bus versions are available.


Precision Timing Systems - Time Code Displays & Monitors

A range of time code displays and monitors to display timestamps recorded with video, film, telemetry, radar, and other data. We are also able to offer aircraft mounted systems as well as units designed to work with Night vision Goggles (NVG).
