Time code is the electrical address of frames on videotape. The dominant format is SMPTE (Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers) time code. It reads like this:
Time code is not like a cassette counter. The exact, absolute time code value is recorded, hence attached forever, together with the images. Thatís why when you mark down a particular time code, you can always get back to that point later. Thereís no inaccuracy.
Digitized media files on hard drive also maintain the same time code data.
