TCR-1 SMPTE Time Code Reshaper/Distribution Amplifier

The TCR-1 is a 1 input, 9 output distribution and reshaping amplifier specifically designed for SMPTE time code.

The TCR-1 takes an incoming LTC (longitudinal time code) signal, and reshapes the rise and fall times to SMPTE standards. Even extremely low level input signals are accurately detected. Nine independent outputs, each with its own adjustable gain control, then deliver the signal to the various required destinations. The gain controls for each output are conveniently located on the front panel.

Input and output connections may be XLR, 1/4", or RCA, balanced or unbalanced, to interconnect readily with most types of equipment. Additional balanced barrier strip outputs are also provided.
