The Time Code address is the specific Time Code for an individual frame of video. Since Time Code tracks frames (0-29 frames per second), seconds (0-59), minutes (0-59), and hours (0-23), there are 2,592,000 possible unique eight digit time code addresses in a 24-hour day, and it is displayed in the following format: 00:00:00:00. Time Code addresses are read from the left with the order being hours, minutes, seconds, and frames.
