Brainstorm SR-112 Plus SR-TCG Plus SP/SR112 SR-112 Distripalyzer with Time Code Generator

Brand: Brainstorm

  • 1 x 12 Distributor / Reshaper
  • Designed to send clean time code over long cables
  • Eliminates level fluctuations


Used extensively in live applications, the SR line has become a standard for show control.

The SR-112 reshapes and distributes timecode through its 12 outputs, sending it over long lines with no signal degradation. It analyzes the source for quick diagnostic and generates or repairs timecode, locked to video if required.

The industry standard SR-112 is designed to distribute time code through its 12 buffered outputs while analyzing it. The reshaper sends clean time code, even over long cables, making it ideal for live environments.

The front panel includes a large 8-digit reader and an LCD display showing the units status and reporting errors as they are detected. All modern SMPTE and EBU SD/HD rates are supported.

With the option TCG, the SR-112 can also generate new time code or repair existing one.

Distributor / Reshaper
The SR-112 distributes and reshapes time code through a 1×12 distributor.

The Brainstorm Time Code Distributors are more than audio DA’s: they reshape the signal before distributing it and by doing so, the SR-112 eliminates amplitude distortions and input level fluctuations.

Output Levels
Output levels are adjustable individually via the Output Level menus. Since the signal is reshaped, output levels remain constant, regardless of the input level.

Time Code Generator (TCG) Included Firmware
The included TCG module has 2 main functions: Repairing time code and generating new time code.

Repairing Time Code
In REPAIR mode, the SR-112 fixes drop outs by regenerating the incoming code (jam-sync). It can also correct video phase when it is misaligned.

Generating new Time Code
In GENERATE mode, the SR-112 generates new time code. Start time, format and frame rate can be set. The generator can be genlocked to external video.

SP/SR112 – Serial Port for the SR-112
This hardware option is very easy to install. It allows for the TCG Time Code Generator to be remote controlled with serial commands from a computer. The SP/SR112 includes a serial port adapter and the complete protocol documentation.

Please Note: The SR-112-SR-TCG-SP is the SR-112 Distripalyzer with Time Code Generator and Serial Port.
