Mountlake Terrace, WA (May 24, 2006)–Symetrix has announced the official release and first shipments of the Lucid GENx192 Ultra-Low Jitter Master Clock.
Lucid GENx192 Touting “the lowest jitter specs at an unbelievable price point,” the GENx192 is an advanced master clock for in-home and/or high-tech recording studios, as well as broadcast studios and digital sound reinforcement systems.
According to Symetrix, the GENx192 provides ultra-low jitter clock via its internal oscillator. It can also distribute an external Word Clock or AES (clock and/or audio) signal via its fourteen outputs. Internally, it can handle the standard sampling frequencies up to 192kHz. It can distribute external rates between 28Hz and 216Hz and even clean up external clocks with JIF (Jitter Input Filtering) to remove jitter before sending it to the outputs. Its 14 outputs are split into two groups of seven, each capable of generating an independent multiple of the base frequency. Thus, the unit is capable of generating two different frequencies, such as 96kHz and 192kHz, simultaneously providing ultimate flexibility.
Termination problems are not an issue with TS-75, a Word Clock Termination Sensing circuit that indicates proper or improper termination via rear-panel LEDs. This feature will help users resolve one of the most common digital audio problems, a condition that leads to clicks, pops, and other symptoms of incorrect digital sync. Further, the GENx192 handles dropouts for you. If an external clock signal goes away, the GENx192 will switch to its internal oscillator and generate a solid clock.
“The GENx192 sets a new standard in terms of value and performance,” noted Dan Gallagher, executive vice president of global sales and marketing. “The jitter specs, feature set and price will make the GENx192 a leader in the category.”
