Non drop-frame timecode

Timecode that does not use drop-frame and always identifies 30 frames per second. This way the timecode running time will not exactly match normal time unless it is an exact 30f/s. The mismatch amounts to 1:1000, amounting to an 18-frame overrun every 10 minutes. This applies where 59.94, 29,97 or 23.976 Hz frame rates are used in video systems, the practice in many ex NTSC countries including USA and Canada.
