Brainstorm Electronics announces the release of version 2.14 firmware for the DXD line of universal clocks, adding support for IEEE 1588-2002, a.k.a. PTP v1, which is mainly used by Dante products.
Available for models DXD-16 and DXD-8, the new firmware is designed to provide direct, precise synchronization of Dante A/V over IP products. The DXD devices can now be a PTP v1 Grandmaster or a PTP v1 Slave, leading or following Dante, making them more flexible and adaptable to most scenarios.
As a PTP v1 Grandmaster, the DXD can can also lock to a traditional sync reference such as WC, AES, Black Burst (SD video sync), HD video tri-level sync or 10 MHz, in addition to it’s internal crystal or GPS with the optional GPS receiver.
The DXD-16, with its four PTP ports, can act as a bridge between a Dante network and AES67 PTP v2 devices, while remaining totally independent and separate, by setting one port for PTP v1 and another for PTP v2.
