SB-T Trilevel Syncbox
The Denecke Dcode SB-T generates all common SMPTE time code rates and video references in 1920 X 1080 (Sony) and 1280 X 720 (Panasonic) High Definition standards. Standard Definition (29.970 fps Non-drop & Drop Frame) and PAL (25 fps) black burst or color bars are generated as well. Three LEDs indicate battery status, sync/internal run and presence of external power.
Three AA batteries power the SB-T or power externally through a 4 pin Hirose or an optional 5 pin Lemo. The amber LED indicates the battery status. OFF = battery good (assuming unit is ON), a once per second flash = battery low, and twice per second flash = battery dead. The batteries should be replaced as soon as possible when dead battery is indicated. External power is indicated when the red LED is ON. When external power is removed, internal battery power change over is automatic and the red LED turns OFF.
The sync LED (green) indicates whether the SB-T is in jamsync mode or in internal run mode. The sync LED flashes once per second (at the start of the frame 00) when in jamsync mode or if the SB-T has been running in internal run mode for 10 minutes. Note that the TC rate and mode switches are locked out to prevent accidental change of the settings and the unit must be powered down for different switch setting to take affect. The SB-T features an automatic jamsync capability which re-jams to any break in time code without the need to power down. The jam occurs at the 00 frame so cross jamming of different rates can be accomplished.
Internal run mode is indicated by the sync LED strobing. When the SB-T is turned on without time code present at its input, it will generate its own time code/video reference starting at 00:58:30:00. The TC frame rate and video reference are dependent upon the switch settings. Pressing the set button will increment the minutes, while holding down the set button will scroll the minutes. The minutes roll over into the hours therefore enabling control of the hours and minutes.
