Denecke SB-4 overview

  • 1Description

The Dcode SB-4 from Denecke is a compact and lightweight (at 4 oz) syncbox which generates, reads, and jam syncs timecode at all standard frame rates. It features a large display with a backlight, that allows you to comfortably read your timecode and settings, even in sunlight.

The SB-4 is equipped with an advanced Temperature Compensated Crystal Oscillator (TCXO) which offers ten times the frequency stability than that of the company's previous products, eliminating the need to jam more than once per day. The unit provides indication of drift/inaccuracy, a useful feature for troubleshooting bad timecode, and selectable output levels to easily match the sync input of other devices in your system.

The Dcode SB-4 is effortlessly controlled using a simple joystick/button, and runs on two AAA batteries or external power. It operates between 15 and 30 hours on a full charge.
