Denecke SB-3 Time Code Generator
Weight 0.50 lbs
Price: US $522.50

The SB-3 is designed to replace the SB2A in the Denecke line of time code generators. The SB-3 reads, generates and jams to all the standard frame rates including 23.976 for HD shoots. The outputs include Time Code and Word Clock. The temperature compensated crystal oscillator ensures low drift and very low word clock jitter. The SB-3 operates on 2 AA batteries. The is perfect for situations where a small continuous time code source is needed for sync reference.


  • Generates Word Clock in 44.1 KHz, 48 KHz, 96 KHz and 192 KHz, as well as all standard time code rates
  • Cross jam regardless of incoming frame rates
  • Generates all common SMPTE Time Code frame rates
  • Jam from an external time code source or set it internally and use as a stand alone generator
  • Continuously jams to new code so there is no need to power down the unit to re-jam
  • Runs on 2 AA batteries
  • Simple to set up
  • Very low Word Clock jitter locked to the high stability crystal (TCXO)
  • Low and Dead battery warning
