Denecke SB-3 Overview

  • 1Description

The SB-3 Syncbox Time-Code Generator from Denecke reads, generates, and jams to all standard frame rates including 23.976 and all common SMPTE rates for high-definition shoots. It features outputs for time code and word clock. Word clock is generated in 44.1, 48, 96, and 192KHz and other standard time-code rates. TCXO (temperature compensated crystal oscillator) ensures low drift and very low word-clock jitter.

The unit allows you to cross-jam regardless of incoming frame rates. The unit continuously jams to new code so there is no need to power down the unit to re-jam. It runs on (2) AA batteries and includes a battery-warning indicator to gauge its remaining power level.

    Denecke SB-3 Reviews

    SB-3 Syncbox Time-Code Generator is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from RED user says: I love it. Using the SB-3 to constantly jam timecode to our RED camera (the RED loses sync whenever it's powered down). One less thing for the camera operator to have to think about. Battery runs long, and the unit can easily attach to the camera body. Would be great if it had a little more intuitive interface or a display out for the timecode, but this is a professional device - no harder to operate than your Denecke ts-3 slate.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Time I use the SB-3 alongside my Sound Devices 552 mixer-recorder. The SB-3 is the perfect syncbox to feed the built-in recorder time code, and to jam-sync external devices. I like its slim profile, and its efficient DC circuitry (it will run for 2-days straight on 2-AA alkaline batteries). The downside to this device is that there is no display, and no way of powering it externally. However, Denecke recently released the new GR-2 which addresses these aforementioned issues. The SB-3 was designed specifically as an on-camera lock-it box and, for that use, it works like a charm.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works great! Using this piece to feed tc into my 552. No display, but i can feed tc into the iPhone App and verify sync. For the price no complaints! However, it would be nice to have a door that stays attached. Would not recommend because of the size/bulkiness of this item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from S U P E R B For jamming with a Roland R-88. Simple, easy to use, Roland tells me it's working and doing its job. Buy 10!
