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.
Unlike the DCD-8, the DCD-12 is a single domain generator. However, it does have a divider/multiplier on outputs 9-12 so that two multiple frequencies can be generated simultaneously such as 48KHz and 96KHz for example or 176.40KHz and 44.1KHz.
Viewing the frequency of the reference or the input frequency is as simple as holding down the VIEW button, the 6 digit display shows the frequency of the reference or input frequency. When you release it, it returns to displaying the output frequency.
The term Gearboxing is used when mixed rates are synchronized together. The DCD-12 has the ability to generate a frequency different than that of the reference. For example, with a 44.1KHz reference the DCD-12 can generate 96KHz. That is when GEARBOXING lights up.
