In film and video production, a “Timecode” is a set of numeric codes that indicate the hours, minutes, seconds, and frames of a video. Timecode serves as a reference for editing and synchronizing audio and video, allowing filmmakers and video producers to work with greater accuracy and efficiency.

Timecode appears as a continuous running count of hours, minutes, seconds, and frames, displayed on a video monitor or audio recording device. It acts as a common point of reference for all of the elements of a production, ensuring that audio and video are in sync and can be easily edited together.

In production, timecode is typically generated by a timecode generator or a device that is synchronized with the camera, such as a digital audio recorder. It is important to ensure that all devices in a production are using the same timecode, to prevent syncing issues during editing.
