Brainstorm Electronics SR-112
Time Code Distripalyzer

OUR PART #  SR-112

As a replacement for the industry standard SR-15+, the SR-112 reshapes and distributes time code, while analyzing it. A large 8 digit reader is included on the front panel and an error report can be sent via the ethernet port. All modern SMPTE and EBU SD/HD rates are supported. But, unlike the SR-15+, the new SR-112, with the optional generator software (TCG), can also repair bad time codes and generate new ones.

Brainstorm Electronics SR-112 Features:

  • Time Code Analyzer: Eliminates frustrations and downtime by identifying quickly and accurately errors with a powerful time code analyzer:
  • Time code format & Frame Rate: The front panel displays separately the format (24, 25 or 30), the drop frame status and the frame rate of the incoming time code. For example: 30 drop at a rate of 29.97. No more guessing. In addition, the frame rate counter can show potential problems such as jitter or wow and flutter.
  • Time code errors: Time code errors such as repeated frames, drop outs etc.are detected and reported on the front panel along with the faulty addresses. A buzzer sounds whenever the analyzer detects an error.
  • Video Phase: In post production, it is essential that time code be synchronous with video (i.e. the video frame must be perfectly aligned with the corresponding time code word). The SR-112 accurately monitors the phase between time code and video and reports even slow drifts.
  • Time code report: A comprehensive report that includes format, video phase and time code errors can be sent to a computer via the rear panel Ethernet port.
  • Distributor/ Reshaper: While analyzing, the SR-112 distributes and reshapes time code through a 1x12 distributor.
  • Buffered outputs: The 12 time code outputs are balanced and buffered, avoiding the problems caused by multing a single source.
  • Output Levels: Output levels are adjustable individually via the Output Level menus. Since the signal is reshaped, output levels remain constant, regardless of the input level.
  • Reshaping: The Brainstorm Time Code Distributors are more than audio DA’s: they reshape the signal before distributing it. By reshaping the signal, theSR-112 eliminates amplitude distortions and input level fluctuations.
  • Time Code Generator (Optional Software - TCG): An optional software (TCG) can be purchased that adds a time generator module to the SR-112. ThisTGC has 2 main functions: Repairing time code and generating new time code.
  • Repairing Time Code: In REPAIR mode, the SR-112 fixes drop outs by regenerating the incoming code (jam-sync). It can also correct video phase when it is missaligned.
  • Generating new Time Code: In GENERATE mode, the SR-112 generates new timecode. Start time, format and frame rate can be set. The generator can also be genlocked to external video.
