ClipLink Operation Flow
Data Generated When Shooting
The following describes the kinds of data that is
generated when using the ClipLink function.
When shooting, a single-frame image from the Mark
IN point at the start of each scene is recorded as a still
picture into the DSBK-301A’s internal memory.
These images are called “Index Pictures”. When you
finish shooting, the Index Pictures from all scenes are
recorded onto the tape after the last scene.
Up to 32 Index Pictures can be recorded onto the tape
space normally occupied by one frame, as shown
Seven frame spaces are reserved at the end of the last
scene as a recording area for Index Pictures. (A
cassette with 16 Kbits of cassette memory can record
up to 198 Index Pictures, and a cassette with 4 Kbits of
cassette memory can record up to 45 Index Pictures.)
ClipLink log data
ClipLink log data can be recorded automatically or
manually into the cassette memory for use as a
convenient alternative to the conventional “shot list”.
ClipLink log data includes the following items.
0 90 180 270 360 450 540 630
After shooting, the Index
Pictures in the internal
memory are recorded onto
the video tape.

ClipLink log data
Reel number (cassette number)
Data (maximum length: 8 digits) consisting of alphanumeric characters and/or symbols
(This is left blank at shipping.)
A three-digit number from 001 to 198 (starts at 001 and is automatically incremented
with each scene).
This cannot be changed (set to “1” at shipping).
Indicates the OK/NG status of a particular scene. (In the OK case, nothing is
Mark IN/OUT point time codes
These are the time codes that indicate the Mark IN and Mark OUT points for each
scene (HH:MM:SS). These time codes are recorded when the camcorder has been
set to MARK mode.
The frame digit is incremented at each Mark IN point and is decremented at each Mark
OUT point. (For details, see “Time codes recorded for Mark IN/OUT points” on page
Cue point time code This is the time code that indicates the cue points (valid up to the frame digit). This
time code is recorded when the camcorder has been set to CUE mode. When in this
mode, the time codes at the start and end of a recording (the Rec IN and Rec OUT
time codes) are automatically recorded as Mark IN/OUT points.
