Philips' new CD- Subcode Processor /Editor, the LHH 0425, offers extensive operational facilities for Compact Disc program production houses, and enables significant reductions on administration and paperwork. The LHH 0425 provides a convenient and reliable way of generating and editing CD -PQ cue code data. In its editor function, it also has the unique facility of enabling program and mastering -related text information to be added to the tape master.
When the cue codes are printed out from the tape master, a visual indication of subcode and text information is provided. This eliminates the need for extensive and time - consuming administrative work. The processor function of the new CDSubcode Processor /Editor enables the CD -PQ cue code data to be translated into the standardized CDSubcode format. Further operational facilities of the LHH 0425 give the user the possibility of generating CD -PQ cue code data for recording onto the standardized CD- Master tape.
This is achieved by using the logically laid -out system keyboard, or during CD- Master tape editing. In addition, the LHH 0425 reads CD -PQ cue code information from the standardized CD -Tape Master, providing full editing possibilities for this data. With the new Philips system, automatic generation of CD -PQ Subcode data, according to the standardized CD- Subcode Format, is also possible. Operation of the CD- Subcode Processor /Editor is straightforward, with all commands entered via an alphanumeric keyboard.
Selected functions and all relevant data' are displayed on an easy -to -read visual display. The keyboard can also be used to control all tape recorder functions. This is a particular advantage when automatic operation of PQ -cue code data storage or readout during CD -tape mastering, or control over the tape recorder on the CD -disc mastering process is required. To ensure optimum performance and maximize the capabilities of the new CD- Subcode Processor /Editor, the ideal system configuration includes a video display unit with alphanumeric keyboard, hard copy printer, U -matie tape recorder, SMPTE time -code reader, and a PCM -audio program editor.
