    "Control Track Generator, for synchronous recording with a tape recorder already in use. It will extend the functions of the tape recorders which are performing within the specifications published as the NAB Primary Standard, so that such recorders may meet operational requirements of the film and television industries. The control track signal is mixed with the program signal so that both are simultaneously recorded. When played back on the manufacturer's Pic-Sync reproducer, the recorded program is synchronous with the frequency of the power line which supplied the original recorder and is therefore in "sync" with any other equipment operating from the same line at the same time."
