  • 1 x 12 Word Clock Distributor
  • High precision Word Clock Generator
  • References: WC, AES, 10MHz (GPS, rubidium clock), Video (HD or SD)
  • Exceptional jitter reduction technology (Jet PLL)
  • Gearboxing: output rate can be different than the rate of the reference
  • Pull up and pull down rates available as well as VSO (+ or - 200 cents)
  • Simple, inexpensive dual redundant power supply support
  • Ethernet: remotely set and monitor parameters + load firmware updates

An excellent companion to the Brainstorm DCD-8 using the same exceptional jitter reduction technology, the DCD-12 allows you to distribute Word Clock through its 12 BNC outputs.

It can provide word clock at frequencies up to 192KHz locked to its high precision internal crystal or locked to an external reference such as WC, Video Sync (all standard HD and SD rates), AES31, S/PDIF, 10 MHz from GPS or Rubidium clock. The rate of the reference (input) is automatically measured and "learned" while the output rate can be set to be identical or independently.

Ethernet is included to remotely monitor and set parameters and update firmware.

Easy to configure yet versatile and powerful, the DCD-12 is a complete word clock distribution solution that can genlock to a number of different references.

    • 1 WC input / 12 WC outputs
    • Distributed clock is internally regenerated

    • Extremely Low-Jitter Clock with all standard rates, up to 192K
    • External references: WC, Video Sync (all standard HD and SD rates), AES31, S/PDIF, 10 MHz from GPS or rubidium clock.
    • Outputs 9-12 feature a frequency multiplier/divider: x2, x4, /2, /4.
    • Supports simultaneously .1% and 4% pull up/down rates
    • VSO is available

    • Output termination status display

    • When locked to an external signal, in the event of a source failure, the DCD-12 switches automatically to its internal crystal to continue generating at the last known frequency until the reference reappears.

    • The DCD-12 has 2 power supply inputs for double redundancy. If one power supply fails, the olther one takes over without any interruption.

Input: 1x BNC connector
Accepts WC, AES, 10MHz (GPS or rubidium clock) and Video Sync (HD and SD)
Outputs: 12x Word Clock BNC
Jitter reduction: Jet PLL
WC Generator: Generates any rate from 32KHz to 192KHz
Pull up/down: .1% and 4%
VSO (+ or - 200 cents)
Analyzer: Input frequency counter
Output termination (DC)
Connectors: Reference Input: BNC (x 1)
Word Clock Outputs: BNC (x 12)
Ethernet: RJ45 jack (x 1)
Power: 4 pin circular (x 2)
Power: 12VDC @ 5A
Redundancy: two separate supplies can be connected to the 2 separate power inputs. If one supply fails, the other takes over and an error is reported. The faulty supply can be swapped without having to power down.
Dimensions: 19” x 8.125” x 1.75” (48.26 cm x 20.64 cm x 4.45cm)
