At NAB 2009 this week (in booth N2914), Brainstorm, a leader in synchronization solutions, is introducing the new CX-4 Word Clock Expander as an option for the company's acclaimed DCD-8 Word Clock Distripalyzer. The CX-4 is an option card that provides four additional word clock outputs through its four BNC connectors to give the DCD-8 a total of 12 outputs.

The CX-4 outputs are grouped in two pairs that are identical to the last pair on the DCD-8 (outputs 7 and 8), with the same reference and frequency. Also, termination is measured and displayed as with the other DCD-8 word clock outputs.

The CX-4 references Internal Xtl, video (HD and SD), word clock, AES, S/PDIF, ADAT and GPS, and it operates at all standard frequencies up to 192 kHz.

Designed for operations ranging from audio recording studios to large post-production houses and major broadcast facilities, the DCD-8 offers a comprehensive package for all clocking needs, providing versatility in the widest range of applications.

For installations requiring more than eight word clock outputs, the CX-4 is offered as a simple and inexpensive solution.
