The Denecke TS-TCB displays and reads SMPTE/EBU time code with accurate RF-locked readout, transmission of stick closing timecode and a second ultra-bright LED dot matrix display

That means that production teams can use a real hardware slate with two-way network communication enabled by Timecode Buddy wireless protocols.
The top ultra bright 7 segment display shows either the internal generator LTC, jammed LTC from the LEMO5 connector or the long range RF timecode sent from the Timecode Buddy/Systems master RF
