Drawmer Spreads The Word
Yo, what time is it? - DMS in da house

Drawmer has introduced a new D-Clock Word Clock Measurement and Distribution Amplifier. It is the second model to emerge in the new DMS (Digital Management Systems) range. The D-Clock is a dual input/twenty output word clock distributor with a 16 character blue LCD display providing a reference measurement of the incoming sample rate. Both AES/EBU and BNC word clock inputs feature a zero latency loopthrough output with switchable high impedance to maintain the correct level of the digital signal for onward distribution. The D-Clock measures and displays sample frequencies up to 768kHz to an accuracy of 2ppm (parts per million) and has two further display modes - sample frequency with ppm error and sample frequency with % pull up/down for video users. Sixteen BNC clock outputs are situated on the rear panel with a further four BNC clock outputs on the front panel for quick patching to other digital devices. The word clock outputs can be derived from either a word clock input or alternatively an AES/EBU audio signal from which clock information can be stripped. In the latter case, one of the many mic pres with internal A/D conversion but no word clock output can be utilised as the master clock source for the whole digital studio.
