Tascam CG-1800 Video Sync/Master Clock Generator

The Tascam CG-1800 Video Sync/Master Clock Generator generates NTSC, PAL and HD Tri-level video clock – as well as word clock through BNC, AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs – ensuring compatibility with any synchronization system. It is ideal for small to large-scale video/audio synchronization systems.

The Tascam CG-1800 Video Sync/Master Clock Generator's internal clock employs the high-precision OCXO that is not impacted by environment temperature. All models use a high-precision OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator) that boasts a clock frequency precision of ±0.01ppm and a frequency stability of ±0.005ppm per day. The jitter management circuit developed by TASCAM reduces external clock jitters, enabling a stable clock signal to video and word outputs, while a glitch-free relock circuit maintains a sustained clock phase even during clock dropouts and recovery, thus effectively preventing noise and skipping from occurring, delivering high reliability and stability to users.

Designed for High Reliability and Dependable Stability
Jitter management circuit provides stable clock. External clock jitter is reduced using an original TASCAM circuit design that incorporates a high-performance video clock generator device, featuring an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and a PLL (phase-locked loop) circuit with a discrete filter. This enables a stable clock signal to be provided to the video/word outputs, improving system stability. Glitch-free relocking circuit prevents noise and skipping during clock dropouts and recovery. The Tascam CG-1800 constantly measures the external reference clock. In devices that do not have built-in countermeasures, and the master clock signal drops out, the video reference and word clock signals could become out of phase, and sound might skip during the dropout – and again during recovery. In the Tascam CG-1800, if the clock drops out, a substitute reference clock signal is maintained with a high-performance holdover. During this time, the video reference and word clock signals are kept in-phase, so restoration of synchronization to the reference signal can occur without glitches - preventing video/audio noise and skipping sounds when recovering from a dropout.

Designed for Durability
Durable nut-coupling Amphenol BNC connectors. Since the Amphenol BNC connectors use nuts for coupling, they are extremely resistant to pulling, twisting and multiple connect-disconnect cycles. Each connector has an independent circuit board to prevent contact failures due to twisting and repeated use The construction uses a single circuit board for each connector. This provides excellent resistance to the twisting and pulling of cables and suppresses interference between connectors.
