5601MSC+GP+PTP+3GTG - Overview

The Evertz 5601MSC Master Sync and Clock Generator is a broadcast quality, master sync pulse generator (SPG) and a master clock. It provides all of the synchronizing signals needed in a 21st century TV station or post production facility at the same time as solving the problem of locking the in-house master clock system to the master video sync pulse generator.

A high stability, temperature controlled oscillator, provides the 5601MSC with better than 1.0x10-8 (or 0.01ppm) frequency reference. The free running drift of this 10MHz reference will be less than 0.1Hz (which amounts to less than one millisecond time drift per day). This guarantees that any frequency drift, with time and temperature, will be within the tolerances expected from the best SPGs or master clocks available in the industry. The 5601MSC may also be referenced to an external 5 MHz or 10 MHz master oscillator if higher stability is required. Both the SPG and the Master Clock section of the 5601MSC may be referenced to high stability time and frequency standards present in the Global Position System (GPS) by adding the GPS option (+GP).

The SPG section of the 5601MSC provides six timeable reference outputs. These six BNC outputs may be confi gured to provide independently timed color black (black burst) outputs or independently timed HDTV tri-level sync outputs. Each color black output can optionally carry vertical interval time code (VITC) on a user specifi ed set of lines. Additionally, each output can provide 10MHz, 5MHz, PAL Subcarrier, NTSC Subcarrier, 1 PPS, 1/1.001 PPS, 6/1.001 PPS, PAL color frame pulse and 48kHz wordclock.

Input / Output Summary
On the 5601MSC, a wordclock output is a standard feature. It provides a 48kHz wordclock or may be configured as an additional sync output. Also, the 10MHz output provides 10MHz or 5MHz, or may be configured as an additional sync output.

There are four test signal generator options available. The 3GTG option includes all features of the HDTG option and adds support for dual-link and 3G formats. Each test generator has two outputs and a large suite of test signals available. When the 3GTG option is ordered, 3D test signals are also available. In the 4K/UHDTV mode the four test generators are combined into one quad-link test generator.

The 5601MSC offers an optional redundant power supply. The redundant power supplies and fans are hot-swappable.
