bi-phase : An electronic reference signal used by mag recorders, editing stations, and film projectors. See bi-phase modulation, pilot tone, neo-pilot, and control track.

bi-phase modulation : In SMPTE timecode generation, the electronic process that produces the signal containing the SMPTE data itself. A 1.2k Hz square wave is momentarily modulated to 2.4kHz with each new bit of location information coming from the master clock.

bi-phase/tach : An electronic pulse used by some film equipment and other motor-driven devices. Similar to a bi-phase signal, but different in the way directional information is provided. See also tach pulse.
