We guarantee the best prices on all products, as stipulated by our suppliers. Our exchange rate is updated twice daily on the website in order to keep the prices inline with international trends.
The cost and delivery time of your order are estimated online at the checkout. This is generally 10-15 working days but we push for better times than that constantly. Packages are generally dispatched from the manufacturer within 3-5 days after receipt of payment and are shipped via UPS with tracking. You will receive tracking notification either via SMS or email.
Shipping fees include handling and packing fees as well as postage costs and import duties into South Africa. Although shipping includes insurance, the package/s will be dispatched at your own risk. However, due to the nature of the items being purchased, special care is taken to protect these "fragile" objects.
Boxes are amply sized by either the manufacturer or by staff of PRO GEAR SA, and your items are well-protected.
The estimation is performed according to the weight of items, where they originate, and is calculate live to get the best rates possible.
We deliver orders anywhere in South Africa. Should you be outside of our borders, we can still deal with you. Contact us directly.
A courier will deliver your order right to your doorstep.
Shipping costs displayed on sales price are form the supplier to our warehouse. For orders over R5000 we will ship your items to your door FREE OF CHARGE .
For orders under R5000 there will be a small courier fee involved to get the items delivered to your door.
Payment may be made via Visa, MasterCard, Debit and Credit cards, as well as via Instant EFT (SID). All our payments are secure and handled by PayGate (Pty) Ltd and FNB. We have negotiated a merchant account in order to keep these costs as slow as possible. Another option is for you to handle your own bank EFT transfer - (Place an order, print the received invoice, pay it using ORDER NUMBER as reference, and email us the Proof Of Payment).
The SBOX-1N is an extremely accurate, very compact and affordable time code and word clock generator. Its main advantages, not-to-mention being the industry leader in time code sync precision,
are its surprisingly easy to use "plug and play" feature, along with its 1" large OLED display and well-designed power consumption optimization. With SBOX-1N you will never be out of sync again.
All Time Code and Word Clock Formats.
The SBOX-1N can receive, precisely jam or start to generate new time codes of all existing SMPTE time code formats.
Also, all commonly used word clock formats are supported, including their pull-up and pull-down options.
To use, simply connect the cable with the active time code and leave the rest to SBOX-1N!
The automatic turn on and jamming function provides the most user-friendly and reliable time code syncing as the SBOX-1N will automatically distinguish correct time code format, calibrate internal TCXO to obtain the same time base as your source, and start generating jammed time code.
You will find the time code synched to the source within less than 0.5 frame drifts even after two days of continuous use.
Embedded high precision temperature compansated crystal oscillator TCXO with frequency accuracy off 0.2 ppm is the fundamental piece of hardware for stable and accurate time code and word clock generator.
The superior quality of TCXO is best suited for changing environmental conditions where temperatures vary a lot during the day. Even in extreme weather conditions, the SBOX-1N will keep time codes in sync.
Thanks to our sophisticated software methods, the ultra-highly accurate TCXO can be further calibrated to achieve much better than 0.2 ppm accuracy. These methods can be applied both during jamming, when TCXO is calibrated to obtain exactly the same time base as the source of time code, or during calibration, from BETSO GPS-1 devices which offer calibrating based on GPS atomic clocks.
This accuracy is almost impossible to beat. And, as you know, accuracy is what TC syncing is all about!
Thanks to precise CNC milling manufacturing technology, anodized aluminium alloy materials, original hi-quality connectors and other components, the SBOX-1N is very durable but still versatile.
With its weight and dimensions, the SBOX-1N is one of the smallest and most lightweight TC & WC generators on the market. It can be easily mounted on most camcorders or photo cameras available. Mounting on your rig is even easier when using our protective Nylon Pouch or Hot Shoe Holder.
The SBOX-1N is powered by two AA batteries, which are able to power the device for up to 60 hours of continuous time code generation. This outstanding performance is achieved by a lowering of the display brightness and by switching the display to complete Standby Mode when activity is indicated by two LED diodes.
