Brainstorm Electronics has released v2 firmware update for its DXD line of synchroisers, adding new features to the universal clock including PTP, GPS and LTC functions.

Brainstorm Electronics DXD-8 and DX-16 Universal Clocks‘In this new era of media over IP, PTP (Precision Time Protocol) has become extremely important as it is the sync standard for AES67, SMPTE 2110, Dante and Ravenna,’ the company states. ‘The DXD can now be a PTP Grandmaster locked to its internal crystal or to an external reference including WC, Video Sync or 10MHz. It can also be a PTP Slave locked to an external Grandmaster.’

In addition, v2 brings support for the Brainstorm GPS receiver (DXD/GPS) that can be installed inside the DXD. GPS not only provides an extremely accurate source for clocking and for Time-Of-Day, but also enables remote DXD units to be locked and in phase with one another when referenced to GPS.

Version 2 also offers an optional LTC package that includes two time code generators. Each can be set as a Time-Of-Day time code generator or as a simple Run/Stop/Cue generator locked to the DXD reference, at any standard format or rate. Parameters are included for the Daily Jam per ST-2059.

‘The DXD line was designed to meet the sync requirements of multiple environments by combining traditional legacy sync (word clock, AES black, video Black Burst or Try-Level sync) with IEEE1588 PTP (Precision Time Protocol) and GPS,’ says Brainstorm Electronics President, Bernard Frings. ‘IP is clearly the future but a smooth transition is needed.’
