Betso's whole new concept of wireless transmission of timecode and status information is ideal for simple on stage workflow control. Each device connected to the network will be continuously jammed from transmitter and on each device you can observe status information of all other devices in the network. The operating range is up to 500m within the line of sight. The RF protocol incorporates frequency hopping spread spectrum technology approach which ensures robust functionality even in the environment with high RF noise. When the unit set as receiver is out of the RF range, it keeps generating synced timecode.
All timecode and wordclock formats:
The SBOX-2RF can receive, precisely jam or start to generate new time codes of all existing SMPTE time code formats. Also, all commonly used word clock formats are supported, including their pull-up and pull-down options.
Extremely easy to use:
To use, simply connect the cable with the active timecode and leave the rest to SBOX-2RF! The automatic turn on and jamming function provides the most user-friendly and reliable timecode syncing as the SBOX-2RF will automatically distinguish correct timecode format, calibrate internal TCXO to obtain the same time base as your source, and start generating jammed time code. You will find the timecode synched to the source within less than 0.5 frame drifts even after two days of continuous use.
Ultra highly accurate TCXO:
Embedded high-precision temperature compansated crystal oscillator TCXO with frequency accuracy off 0.2ppm is the fundamental piece of hardware for stable and accurate timecode and wordclock generator. The superior quality of TCXO is best suited for changing environmental conditions where temperatures vary a lot during the day. Even in extreme weather conditions, the SBOX-2RF will keep timecodes in sync.
Thanks to Betso's sophisticated software methods, the ultra-highly accurate TCXO can be further calibrated to achieve much better than 0.2ppm accuracy. These methods can be applied both during jamming, when TCXO is calibrated to obtain exactly the same time base as the source of timecode, or during calibration, from BETSO GPS-1 devices which offer calibrating based on GPS atomic clocks. This accuracy is almost impossible to beat. And, as you know, accuracy is what TC syncing is all about!
Top build quality:
Thanks to precise CNC milling manufacturing technology, anodized aluminium alloy materials, original hi-quality connectors and other components, the SBOX-2RF is very durable but still versatile.
Small, lightweight, and easy to mount and protect:
With its weight and dimensions, the SBOX-2RF is one of the smallest and most lightweight TC & WC generators on the market. It can be easily mounted on most camcorders or photo cameras available. Mounting on your rig is even easier when using Betso's protective nylon pouch or hot shoe holder.
