Studio Digital Audio Solution From Symetrix

Lucid GENx192 Ultra Low Jitter Studio Master Clock Launched      10/01/06
Digital audio is is an essential part of everyday workflow in today's recording, production and broadcast environments and a master clock is at the heart of the system. Now, Symetrix have announced the introduction of the Lucid GENx192 Ultra Low Jitter Master Clock. Designed to fit in a variety of digital audio situations, the GENx192 provides an extremely low jitter master clock reference in a variety of digital audio formats. Capable of handling sampling frequencies up to 192kHz, this unit will be a versatile companion in any digital audio application including recording and broadcast scenarios. Dan Gallagher, Executive vice president of global sales and marketing for Symetrix had this to say about the new product, "We think this new Lucid clock is really going to turn some heads, It offers an extraordinary package in terms of jitter performance, connectivity and flexibility, all at a reasonable price point." The GENx192 has two operating modes, accessed through a very straightforward front panel interface. A Sync Source select knob allows the operator to choose between internal reference and distribution functions. In distribution mode an external AES or Word Clock sync source fed into the device appears at each of the GENx192's fourteen sync outputs. When operating in Internal mode the GENx192 generates an ultra low jitter sync reference at frequencies up to 192kHz. Its fourteen outputs are split into two groups of seven, each capable of generating an independent multiple of the base frequency. Thus, the device is capable of generating two different frequencies, such as 96kHz and 192kHz, simultaneously. The unit also includes circuitry that examines the word clock connections and indicates, via a rear-panel LED, whether that particular connection is properly terminated. This feature will help users resolve one of the most common digital audio problems - improper termination. This condition leads to clicks, pops, and other symptoms of incorrect digital sync.
