The time code synchronized to the camera does not appear.

I am using several panasonic lumix DC-BGH1 cameras.

The settings of the DC-BGH1 camera are as follows.
– System Frequency : 59.94Hz(NTSC)
– Rec Quality : 1920×1080, 29.97p
– SDI output resolution : 1080p

And the multi-camera system configuration is as shown in the figure.

(Tentacle and camera are connected using BNC connector.)

The camera’s time code setting is set to FREE RUN, NDF, and TC IN.

When recording a camera with this configuration, the timecode does not match.

Am I testing the wrong way?

I want to know which part of the problem is occurring.

(When testing with another camera, Panasonic AG-HPX255EN with the same configuration,
We confirmed that the timecode matches exactly.)

There is additional confirmation.

Except for the ATEM 8K switch in the configuration shown in the picture in the question, Decklink and the camera were directly connected.

When checking the TC value using the Decklink SDK, it was confirmed that it was consistent with the TC of Tentacle.
(ATEM 8K exports VITC type TC, and the camera only accepts LTC type TC, so I connected directly to decklink except for the switcher.)

It seems that the problem was simply showing the TC.
(It was correct that checking TC sync on the screen is not a good way)
