    With globalization and HDTv's rapidly expidly expanding presence, it's moer critical than ever that studios accomodate a wide range of standart. The OCX-V offers seamless operation with PAL , NTSC, and over a dozen HDTV standarts. Its versatility is taken a step further by supporting simultaneous 0.1% and 4% pull-up/down functionality, enabling unprecedented flexibility. These features, plus impressive gearboxing functionality make the OCX-V an indispensable tool for any video installation.

    Oven control
    The crystal oscillators in the isochrone OCX-V are housed in a temperature controlled oven, as commonly used in military and satellite communication. This keeps the oscillator at a constant temperature making the Isochrone 100x more stable than similar products.

    Antelopes jitter management module
    Jitter free operation is critical in the modern studio. Antelope's Jitter Management Module makes jitter essentially nonexistent. Adaptive Loop Filtering is taken to the next level with a sophisticated DSP Based Multistage IIR filter, ensuring a jitter free, great sounding studio.

    Atomic clock
    The Isochrone OCX-V can be locked to the most accurate clock on Earth: the Atomic clock. A studio can truly achieve perfect stability with the power of Atomic Clock, and only Isochrone clocks are capable of locking to this unprecedented technology.

    Cutting edge video
    With globalization and HDTV's rapidly expanding presence, it's more critical than ever that studios accommodate a wide range of standards. The OCX-V offers seamless operation with PAL, NTSC, and over dozen HDTV standards.

    Next generation gearboxing
    Put anything in, get anything out. Reference 48kHz and output 44.1kHz, sample-locked to the source. Put in NTSC, get Pal out. You can even lock the black burst generator to audio clock; put in 96kHz and get NTSC out!

    Intuitive design
    No nested menus to scroll through, control positions are plainly visible on front panel of the unit.

    Antelope clocking. Driven by the highest quality oscillator in existence
    The core of any master clock is the Crystal Oscillator. While other master clocks cut corners with their Oscillators, Antelope uses the best. The Oven Controlled Discrete Transistor Crystal Oscillator. Before Antelope, this component was found only in high-performance aerospace and telecommunication hardware. A better oscillator means better clocking, delivering 4X-6X less jitter and 100X greater stability than the closest competitor.

    Acoustically focused clocking, the next generation of DDS technology
    The OCX will noticeably improve the sound quality of connected devices. This is achieved with Antelope's exclusive Acoustically Focused Clocking technology (AFC). AFC is the 3rd generation of DDS, a technology introduced over ten years ago by Isochrone engineer Igor Levin with his ground breaking Aardsync master clock. This legacy of amazing sound further evolves with AFC. Providing far more than impressive specs, AFC is a hybrid of advanced engineering and exhaustive listening tests designed to deliver extraordinary sound.

    Peace of mind
    Clocking is a critical task, and should never be confusing. With straightforward controls dedicated to specific tasks, warning lights for critical errors, extensive termination diagnostics and a highly visible, accurate frequency display, operating status is apparent at a momentary glance. Never before has such a powerful device been so easy to use.
