Model DA 4x4b
Model DDA/WC-4x4

The Radio Systems model GEN - DDA/WC is a professional quality digital sync. generator with an integrated AES/EBU distribution amplifier and six Word Clock outputs.

The two fully independent AES/EBU input sections feature balanced inputs to four buffered balanced outputs. A three digit LED display for each section reads out the sampling frequency. Two LED’s for each section indicate PLL (unlock) and data (validity) errors.

In the event of an external AES/EBU signal failure to either input section, the unit automatically switches to a high precision internal signal generator. Front panel indication and selection of the stand-by internal sample frequency is provided. The internal precision generator may be selected to generate clocks in lieu of the external AES/EBU input.

In addition, audio that appears with an AES/EBU input will be distributed to the AES/EBU outputs if the AES/EBU input is selected as the generator source.

An external Word-Clock signal input is provided, buffered and distributed to six independent outputs. In the event of external source failure, or at the user’s option, a frame-clock reference signal, selectable from either of the two AES/EBU inputs is regenerated and output to the Word Clock outputs.

Rear connectivity is via 15 pin “D” connectors for AES/EBU signals and BNC connectors for Word Clock input and outputs. Break-out “octopus” cables are available to connect the AES/EBU inputs and distributed outputs via XLR or RJ-45 (StudioHub+ connectors.)
