The Ultimate Master Clock for Pro Tools|HD

Here's the perfect way to keep your large-scale media production in perfect sync with your Pro Tools|HD system. The Avid SYNC HD incorporates an ultra-high-fidelity, low-jitter master word clock, capable of operating at up to 192kHz to achieve near-sample-accurate lock onto serial timecode, LTC, or bi-phase/tach signals.

In addition to standard word clock and analog sync, the SYNC HD features AES/EBU clock I/O, as well as SD and HD video reference In/Thru (up to 1080p/60fps), video program I/O, and many other time reference formats.
