DK-Technologies Releases New LTC Engine for the PT5300 Master Sync Generator at IBC 2013

DK-Technologies is using IBC 2013 as the platform to release its latest LTC and 3G additions to the field proven PT5300 Master Sync Generator (Hall 8, Stand B60).

In master sync applications, the new LTC fallback function allows the PT5300 to align with the internal high precision clock – a feature that is of huge importance to users working in situations where GPS coverage is patchy or inadequate.

In slave sync applications the LTC engine enables the PT5300 to genlock to VITC time-code derived from the black-burst input.

The new LTC engine will be shipping as an integral part of the PT5300 by September 2013. The improved functions are available to existing PT5300 users as an upgrade module.

DK-Technologies has also announced that the PT5300 Master Sync Generator and its change-over companion product, the PT5211, will both be 3G compatible by the end of 2013.

“With years of experience and thousands of field hours under the PT5300 hood, we feel that 3G is a natural progression,” says DK-Technologies’ COO, Jacob Christensen.

The 3G upgrade will be available as an optional hardware module and will be backwards compatible with all existing PT5300 and PT5211 units.

DK-Technologies DK Meter Goes ‘All In’ for IBC 2013


DK-Technologies has given its DK Meter software a comprehensive revamp so that it now incorporates Picture Preview and SMPTE timecode reading. And, in a move that will be enormously beneficial to broadcasters, it has also completely removed complex license structures allowing full access to all software features to any DK Meter user.

Uffe Kjems, Product Marketing Director for DK-Technologies, says: “By removing complex license structures, we have made it possible for all DK Meter users to access any of the software features available today. The change, which amounts to a significant increase in functionality and value, applies to any meter in the DK Meter range. Existing users can download the new software free of charge from our website: www.dk-technologies.com.”

The new software, which will be on show at IBC 2013 (Hall 8, Stand E60), also allows 3G SDI video streams to be previewed on the DK Meter screen for instant check or permanent video display.

“Broadcasters need the ability to preview the 3G SDI Video stream and, for DK-Technologies, incorporating this feature into our DK Meter software was an obvious progression,” Kjems adds. “Achieving this was technically challenging but we can now offer our users the ability to measure, monitor and preview the de-embedded SDI audio stream. Picture preview is a very useful additional feature as it can be used to quickly check the SDI video stream and is also handy when the DK Meter is being used as a mini video monitor.”

Additionally, the new software features SMPTE timecode reading for instant view and Logging against timecode. This gives all DK Meter users an easy and accurate way of addressing relevant loudness corrections and actions.

Finally, the DK Meter has undergone a significant facelift, making it much clearer to read and much more user friendly. The user interface step-up includes larger and smoother fonts and a completely new color scheme, elevating the precision metering of the DK Meter to a new level of readability and resolution.
