The Scriptboy is the ideal production assistant's assistant. It provides a large, clear readout of timecode from the camera at distances of up to 100 metres, without cables - and without having to ask the cameraman "what's the code?" A small battery-powered transmitter is attached to the camera and fed with LTC timecode in EBU or SMPTE, dropframe or non-dropframe format. This is transmitted to the Scriptboy clipboard which automatically detects the format and decodes the signal for display. The display reading can be frozen so that accurate timecode can be recorded on continuity notes or script.
