Brainstorm DCD-24 Workclock Distributor- USED

Call for Price


The DCD-24 is both a Word Clock Generator and a Distributor, using exceptional jitter reduction technology. With 24 BNC outputs the DCD-24 sends accurate Word Clock throughout an installation.


  • 1 x 24 Word Clock Distributor
  • High precision Word Clock Generator
  • References: Word Clock, AES, Video Sync (HD & SD), 10 MHz
  • Exceptional Jitter reduction technology (Jet PLL)
  • Gearboxing: output rate can be different than input rate (reference)
  • Pull up and pull down rates available as well as VSO (+ or – 200 cents)
  • Simple convenient dual redundant power supply support
  • Ethernet port: remotely set and monitor parameters + load firmware updates

The 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.
