Denecke SB3 Syncbox Time Code Generator

The Dcode SB-3 is designed to replace the Dcode SB-2A in the Denecke line of Time Code Generators. The SB-3 reads, generates and jams to all the standard frame rates including 23.976 for High Definition shoots. The outputs include Time Code and Word Clock. The Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) ensures low drift and very low Word Clock jitter.
