EDIT Mode

1. EDIT Mode
Allows editing of subtitles text, times, synchronization between subtitles and media, etc.
2

CODE Mode

2. CODE Mode
Text editing is disabled in this mode. The subtitles are always in sync with the media or the input timecode. The only changes allowed to subtitles are changes of their timing with the set and clear commands. This mode is useful for time spotting and re-spotting, both non-realtime and on-the-fly.
3

TRANSMIT Mode

3. TRANSMIT Mode
In this mode no editing or any other change of the subtitles is allowed. The subtitles are always in sync with the media or the input timecode. This mode is useful to Transmit or output ready subtitles On-Air, without operator intervention or risk of potential change of the subtitles.
4

MANUAL Mode

4. MANUAL Mode
In this mode no editing or any other change of the subtitles is allowed. Subtitles are not in sync with the media nor with the input timecode. In this mode you can manually put subtitles on-air and you can freely move around subtitle list. This mode is useful to manually output ready subtitles which do not have other way of synchronization to media or to some time events. For example, a theater performance that has the same text in every show but no guarantied timing can be served in this mode.
5

LIVE Mode

5. LIVE Mode
In this mode editing is possible only on one virtual subtitle intended for on-the-fly typing, dictation or mixed dictation with editing (so called two stage re-speaking). You may have some of the subtitles prepared without timing so a mixture of CODE mode operations and live subtitles typing/dictation is possible.
