Time Code Card
The TCO module is an optional extension for selected RME cards. Placed in a free slot of the computer chassis the TCO will be connected with the HDSP card via a flat ribbon cable.
The small module provides the HDSP card(s) with a Word Clock input and offers a synchronization to LTC and video. Thanks to SteadyClock(TM), the TCO not only extracts absolute positions from these signals, but also a very clean low-jitter word clock. Thus a sample accurate timecode synchronization to audio or video sources is assured.
One single TCO can be used with different HDSP cards at the same time (multicard), if connected to a supported card (see graphic).
