The Tascam CG-1000
Montabello, CA (July 21, 2014)—Tascam has announced three new master clock generators for studio and broadcast application.
The CG-1000 is a clock generator designed for recording studios, engineers and musicians. It has 12 word clock outputs, two AES/EBU, and two S/PDIF outputs. Two of the clock outputs can output multiples of 1/2Fs, 1/4Fs, 2xFs, 4xFs, and 256x the selected sampling rate. Four front-panel preset buttons recall often-used frequencies and other settings, and settings can be saved to a USB drive. A menu screen is provided for additional settings, and the front panel can be locked to prevent accidental changes.
Tascam’s CG-1800 is designed for post-production facilities. This clock generator adds video clock capability to the CG-1000 feature set. Four video clock outputs and a video clock input ensure tight synchronization with video devices. The video clock is compatible with tri-level sync for high-definition video. An additional Analyzer function is also available to measure input frequencies, levels, and termination to assist troubleshooting in large facilities.
The CG-2000 adds redundant power sources and clock sources for broadcast applications, insuring transmissions against dropouts or dead air. A GPO (General Purpose Output) is also provided for tally alarms and monitoring system status.
