Flexible Output Frequencies
The Brainstorm DCD-24 provides word clock at frequencies up to 192KHz locked to its high precision internal crystal or to an external reference - WC, Video Sync (all standard HD & SD rates), AES3 or 10 MHz (from GPS or Rubidium clocks).
The rate of the reference (input) is automatically measured and "learned" while the output rate can be either identical to the input (`follow input' - WC or AES only) or set to any other frequency regardless of the input rate.
Outputs 17-24 have a multiplier/divider so that 2 different rates can be distriibuted simultaneously by the DCD-24, for example 48K and 96K.
If the external reference fails, the DCD-24 switches to internal until the reference returns, smoothly, automatically and without sync shock.
An Ethernet port is included to remotely set and monitor the unit. It is also used to update the firmware.
Two external 12VDC power supply can be connected to the DCD-24. It can operate with either of these power sources and they can both act as a back-up for the other with auto switch-over in the event of a failure.
