PlanetDJ.com has the full and final rights to make all decisions on all PDJ Bucks awarded and revoked. For instance, we only allow one join us award for each real person that joins PlanetDJ.com. We also do not allow friend awards for inviting yourself through other email accounts you may access. We may deny any such awards that we uncover at any time at our full discretion.

      Redeeming PDJ Bucks

      You may redeem your PDJ Bucks on product purchases, subject to the parameters outlined in Minimums and Maximums below. If you have accumulated enough PDJ Bucks to redeem, then you may apply them while in your shopping cart to get the appropriate discount.

      PDJ Bucks Minimums and Maximums

      For most purchases, PDJ bucks can be redeemed for up to 20% of the total of your purchase. In some cases there may also be a minimum number of PDJ Bucks required for any redemption. Your total PDJ Bucks accrued is capped at 5,000 ($50.00), which would require you to redeem some PDJ Bucks before earning more.

      Managing Your PDJ Bucks

      You have the ability to view and manage your PDJ Bucks from within your Customer Account. Here you will be able to view your total points (and currency equivalent), minimum amount needed to redeem, whether you have reached the maximum points limit and a cumulative history of points acquired, redeemed and lost.

      PDJ Bucks Expiration

      PDJ Bucks expire after one hundred eighty (180) days if not redeemed. We'll be sure to prompt you before they expire so you will have a chance to use them. PDJ Bucks expire in the order in which they were earned.

      How Returns Affect PDJ Bucks

      Items that are later returned will have their PDJ Bucks deducted from their earned rewards.

The CG-1800 master clock generator generates NTSC, PAL and HD Tri-level video clock - as well as word clock through BNC, AES/EBU and S/PDIF outputs - ensuring compatibility with any synchronization system. The CG-1800 is designedfor small to large-scale video/audio synchronization systems.

The crystal oscillator is the heart of the clock generator. In each model of the CG Series, an OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator) is used for its high precision, and the fact it is not influenced by the temperature of the environment. Boasting a clock frequency precision of 0.01 ppm*1, which exceeds that of a TCXO (temperature-compensated crystal oscillator), this unit is key in the creation of high-precision synchronization systems - with word output frequency stability of 0.005ppm or less per day.

External clock jitter is reduced using an original TASCAM circuit design that incorporates a high-performance video clock generator engineered with a FPGA*2 and a PLL (phase-locked loop) circuit with a discrete filter. This enables a stable clock signal to be provided to the video/word outputs - improving system stability. The glitch-free relock circuit prevents noise and skipping sounds caused by master clock dropouts.

In addition to (12) word clock outputs and (4) video outputs, the digital outputs include (2) AES3/AES11 and (2) S/PDIF outputs, making this unit useful for large-scale audio/video synchronization systems, and a wide variety of other applications. Of the (12) word outputs, two also support x2Fs, x4Fs and 256Fs output - enabling them to be used in systems with ProTools and other DAW software.

The CG Series has multiple functions to support maintenance, and the identification of issues if problems occur. The analyzer function measures output device termination, input level measurement (for CG-2000 and CG-1800), and the measurement of input frequencies. These built-in features enable the devices to provide troubleshooting support. Additionally, a logging function enables issues to be listed, and saved to a CSV file format on a USB flash drive.

Since crystal oscillators change over time, regular calibration is necessary. In order to avoid possible sync problems, timely inspections - along with regular maintenance is required. The CG Series has a self-correction function, enabling users to conduct maintenance using an external signal input*3 and simple operations.

Amphenol BNC connectors on the chassis use nuts for coupling - making them very durable, Also, a single circuit board is used for each connector - providing excellent resistance to the twisting and pulling of cables, and the suppression of interference between connectors.
The CG Series is the latest in the line of innovative TASCAM professional digital products - engineered with the latest digital clocking technology.

• Internal clock uses a high-precision OCXO (oven-controlled crystal oscillator) that is not influenced by the temperature of the environment
