The timecode standard determines the base frame rate to which Shogun Post can set capture or playback rates.

This command returns a string to describe the current timecode standard. Returned values can be ntsc, ntscDrop, pal, film, filmNtsc or other. The actual frame rate is a multiple of the base frame rate; this can be retrieved with the getRate command.
