ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the standard time codes, generally in serial form, used to convey time information from one point to another. There are four time code formats in normal use including films with 24 frames per second (fps), European Broadcasting Union (EBU) with 25fps, Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) with 30fps and 30fps drop frame. Moreover, EBU is described as SMPTE, but the two are not compatible because the frame rate is different.
