SMPTE Timecode in the DTV Era (1270 words)
Timecode used in television – i.e., 30, 29.97 and 25 fps – may be one of two varieties: linear timecode or, as it was formerly known, longitudinal timecode (LTC) and vertical interval timecode (VITC).
This type of timecode may be recorded on analog audio tracks and was called longitudinal timecode because it was recorded on the longitudinal or linear (as opposed to FM or some other technology) audio tracks of video tape recorders.
Timecode is fundamentally a way to label frames to keep track of them and either drop or nondrop timecode will uniquely identify each frame.
