    MC-3.1 SMART CLOCK SD - Is a DIGITAL AUDIO - SD VIDEO SYNC MASTER CLOCK GENERATOR - and provides the lowest-jitter clock signals for synchronization of AD/DA converters, digital mixers, audio and video workstations and many other devices. SMART CLOCK 3is a successor of MUTEC`s SMART CLOCK and SMART CLOCK av which were previously sold very successfully worldwide.

    The new MC-3 SMART CLOCKs offer enhanced jitter performance, higher flexibility, more outputs per unit and a new designed user interface. Based on the circuit design of MUTEC`s well-known iCLOCK, Redundant Multiple Clock Synthesizer and Video Reference Generator, the MC-3`s signal qualities and function flexibilities achieve levels of performance, which are totally outstanding in their respective market ranges!

    MC-3.1 SMART CLOCK SD offers same audio clock functionalities like MC-3 SMART CLOCK, but offers additionally a standard definition (SD) video reference generator for supporting PAL and NTSC SD video sync signals as Black?+?Burst or composite sync as well as the respective color bars. Two additional video outputs are available on the rear side of the housing. Thus, audio clocks and video references are all available at the same time to synchronize complete audio/video facilities.

    MC-3.1 auto-detects integer relationships between the adjusted video standard and basis clock rate. This applies especially when PAL is selected as video reference and the basis clock rate (WCLK BASIS) is set to 48.0kHz, 96.0kHz or 192.0kHz. In that case, the AES/EBU and S/PDIF generators use the video frame to lock the Z-preamble of the AES channel block start, aligned to AES11-1997/2003 and EBU R83-1996.

    The design advantage of the SMART CLOCKs is their high-precision frequency generator, from which all clock signals are simultaneously derived. As a result, the individual clock signals generated are synchronized to each other in phase, and hence feature the same frequency accuracy and time base! The frequency generation is accurate to <±1ppm and thus complies with AES 11, Grade 1, as well as broadcast specifications.

    For larger equipment set-ups, which require more Word Clock or AES/EBU clock outputs than are provided by the SMART CLOCKs, MUTEC offers a complementary Word Clock distributor which is called DISTRIBUTOR ws and an AES/EBU signal distributor which is called: MC-2.
