Description

EMI Audio is proud to be your choice for professional Audio, Video and Lighting sales.

The best in the CG series for broadcasting stations and post-production sites

With redundancy of both the power supply and the video/audio clock, as well as many other functions, the CG-2000 meets the strict demands of broadcasting and post production.

Features

The internal clock employs the high-precision OCXO that is not impacted by environment temperature

The CG-2000 employs a high-precision OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator) that boasts a clock frequency precision of ±0.01ppm*1 and a frequency stability of ±0.005ppm per day. In addition, the CG-2000 is equipped with an external input connector that supports a 10MHz signal, allowing it to be connected to a rubidium clock or GPS clock, when possible, for even higher precision for the system.
The jitter management circuit developed by TASCAM reduces external clock jitters, enabling a stable clock signal to video and word outputs, while a glitch-free relock circuit maintains a sustained clock phase even during clock dropouts and recovery, thus effectively preventing noise and skipping from occurring, delivering high reliability and stability to users.

Easily check conditions if problems occur through logging and GPO parallel output

The CG-2000 comes equipped with 4 video outputs. All series include 12 word clock outputs, two AES3/11 and two/PDIF digital outputs, enabling the construction of large-scale synchronization systems. Furthermore, it is compatible with 2×Fs, 4×Fs, and 256×Fs outputs, as well as Pro Tools and other DAW systems.
The CG-2000 is developed so that the cause of any malfunctions can be investigated during maintenance when problem occurs. The termination of output equipment, measuring of the input level, and the analyzer function that measures input frequency are all included, supporting troubleshooting should a problem occurs. The word clock’s output level can be adjusted to different levels, allowing for optimum signal levels to be supplied to connecting equipment. As another function that supports the detection of problems, a logging function is also included.

User maintenance enabled by the self-calibration functions via external oscillators

Since crystal oscillators change over time, regular calibration is necessary in order to keep the oscillator in its best condition. The CG-2000 is equipped with a self-calibration function, enabling users to perform maintenance through easy operations*2.
The design takes careful measures to attain durability, including the usage of the nut-coupling Amphenol BNC connectors that are extremely resistant against pulling and twisting, and independent circuit boards for each connector that prevent contact failures caused by twisting.
TASCAM’s accumulated experience and know-how in digital synchronization technology through its development of professional equipment has been refined to create products specialized in clock synchronization.
The CG-2000 is a lineup of professional-level master clock generators that was the result of an exhaustive injection of TASCAM technology.

Designed for High Reliability and Dependable Stability

Power supply redundancy with two power supply circuits

With two power supply circuits, the CG-2000 features redundancy to prevent mishaps caused by power outages.

Redundant video reference/word clock input

With two inputs each for video reference and world clock signals, there is redundancy to prevent problems due to external clock interruption.

Jitter management circuit provides stable clock

External clock jitter is reduced using an original TASCAM circuit design that incorporates a high-performance video clock generator device, featuring an FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) and a PLL (phase-locked loop) circuit with a discrete filter. This enables a stable clock signal to be provided to the video/word outputs, improving system stability.
CG-2000

Glitch-free relocking circuit prevents noise and skipping during clock dropouts and recovery

The CG-2000 constantly measures the external reference clock. In devices that do not have built-in countermeasures, and the master clock signal drops out, the video reference and word clock signals could become out of phase, and sound might skip during the dropout - and again during recovery. In the CG-2000, if the clock drops out, a substitute reference clock signal is maintained with a high-performance holdover. During this time, the video reference and word clock signals are kept in-phase, so restoration of synchronization to the reference signal can occur without glitches - preventing video/audio noise and skipping sounds when recovering from a dropout.

 

High-precision synchronization systems can be created

Internal clock uses a high-precision OCXO that is not influenced by the temperature of the environment

The crystal oscillator is the heart of the clock generator, In the CG-2000, an OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator) is used for its high precision, and the fact it is not influenced by the temperature of the environment. Boasting a clock frequency precision of 0.01 ppm*, which exceeds that of a TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator), this unit is key in the creation of high-precision synchronization systems - with word output frequency stability of +/-0.005ppm or less per day.

Input connector that supports 10MHz signal - allowing the creation of systems with even higher precision

An external input connector that supports a 10MHz signal enables the CG-2000 to be connected to a rubidium clock or GPS clock for even higher precision.

Abundant Input and Output Connectors Support Use in Large-scale Audio/Video Synchronization Systems

Numerous output connectors, including 12 word clock outputs

In addition to 12 word clock outputs and 4 video outputs, the digital outputs include 2 AES3/AES11 and 2 S/PDIF outputs, making this unit useful for large-scale audio/video synchronization systems, and a wide variety of other applications. Of the 12 word outputs, two also support 2×Fs, 4×Fs and 25×6Fs output – enabling them to be used in systems with ProTools and other DAW software.
CG-2000

Supports input and output of a variety of video signal formats - including NTSC, PAL and HD Tri-level

Analog NTSC/PAL and digital HD Tri-level video signal formats are supported.

 

Multiple Functions Support Maintenance and Identification of Issues If Problems Occur

Analyzer function that can measure output device termination

In the installation of broadcasting and large-scale post-production studios, numerous connected devices and complicated wiring are common. The CG-2000 has an analyzer function that allows it to measure phase difference, input frequencies, input levels and the terminations of output devices – enabling it to provide support when troubleshooting problems should they occur.

Optimal levels can be provided to other devices by adjusting wordclock output levels

Depending on the routing of wiring and the receiving devices, signal levels could be reduced – resulting in proper reception failures. Since the output of the CG-2000 can be set to multiple levels, it can provide optimal signal levels to connected devices.

Checking conditions if problems occur is possible through logging and GPO parallel output

One function that enables identification of the causes of trouble is the logging function. In addition to being able to check the log on the CG-2000 display, you can also capture the log as a CSV-format file on a USB flash drive. Moreover, you can also monitor the conditions of trouble occurrence by using GPO parallel output.

Self-calibration function enables maintenance by users

Since crystal oscillators change over time, regular calibration is necessary. In order to avoid problems that could lead to broadcast trouble, timely inspections and regular maintenance are required. The CG-2000 has a self-correction function, enabling users to conduct maintenance using external signal input* and simple operations.

*Use of the self-calibration function requires preparation of a separate PPS-output 10MHz oscillator with a built-in GPS antenna.

 

Designed for Durability

Durable nut-coupling Amphenol BNC connectors

Since the Amphenol BNC connectors use nuts for coupling, they are extremely resistant to pulling, twisting and multiple connect-disconnect cycles.
CG-2000

Each connector has an independent circuit board to prevent contact failures due to twisting and repeated use

The construction uses a single circuit board for each connector. This provides excellent resistance to the twisting and pulling of cables and suppresses interference between connectors.
