Absolute Time Code also known as A.T.C is specific type of time code that is automatically encoded into the subcode area of a digital tape machine. The machine uses this time code for auto-locating and for inter-machine synchronization. Many digital tape machines allow the ATC to be converted to SMPTE for other applications. Unlike SMPTE and other types of time code, ATC always starts at zero at the beginning of the tape.
