Betsos SBOX-1N Time Code and Word Clock Generator

Abel Code: BETS-SBOX-1N
Mfr. Code: SBOX-1N
In Stock
Available In Store | NY
A highly accurate timecode and word clock generator, the Betsos SBOX-1N offers a compact, precise, generator with plug and play feature. Includes a 1" OLED display and power consumption optimization to keep you in sync on location or set.
Key Highlights
  • Timecode & Word Clock Generator
  • GPS function syncs cameras worldwide
  • Less than 0.5 frame drift


Betsos SBOX-1N Time Code and Word Clock Generator provides a compact and precise way to sync with an easy-to-use plug and play feature and power consumption optimzation. Includes a 1" OLED display with intuitive control to provide you with battery status and sync details. This item replaces the original SBOX-1 Generator in the Betsos family of products.

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.

Power this Generator with 2x AA batteries or via an external power (0.9 to 3V DC)


This Generator is easy-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 2 days of continuous use.

The face of the SBOX-1N features the 1" OLED display screen, Left and Right buttons, and the Set button. In addition, there are connectors elsewhere on the chassis: 5-Pin LEMO, BNC (for TC Out), BNC (TC In or WC Out), 2x LED status indicator lights, and a battery door. You can adjust the brightness of the display: Low/Med/High settings.

Auto Functions:

  • Enable
  • Enable + JAM
  • Disable

Jamming Functions:

  • Menu / Jamming
  • Once / Manual (Jam once without asking then you allow the next Jam)
  • Continuous (Jammed each time without asking)
  • Disable (use this for forced master mode)

In addition, you can also Cross Jam, establish an OLED power save mode to prolong battery life, plus orient the display direction to suit each circumstance.

Accurate TCXO

Embedded high precision temperature compansated crystal oscillator TCXO with frequency accuracy off 0.2 ppm is the fundamental piece of hardware for this 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 your time codes in sync.

TCXO Calibration

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.

Advanced Features

  • GPS Calibration - Factory GPS based calibration of TCXO with better than 0,1ppm accuracy result. Ideal for synching 2 cameras that are located in different places across the globe
  • Jamming Calibration - Jamming calibration feature to copy master's TCXO precision
  • Cross Jamming - Cross jamming alowes timecode sync between two diferent framerates
  • Generates all Frame Rates - 23.97fps to 30fps with drop frame and non-drop frame SMPTE TC formats included in 0.2 and 2 multiples (12.5fps, 15fps, 50fps, etc.)
  • Audo ON - Automatic power ON function after active time code detection
  • Display Orientation - Allows to set 180° display rotation for upside down SBOX-1N mounting position
  • TC Offset - Time code offset adjustment from -10 to 10 frames
  • UB Settings - Variable user bits settings including preset value, jammed user bits and live external timecode insertion
  • GPS Time TC - Starts to generate exact UTC time code synchronized all over the world
  • Bi-Directional BNC Connector - for timecode input (if WC is turned OFF) and WC output

Word Clock Frequencies /Modes

  • PAL/SECAM pull-down
  • NTSC pull-down
  • Standard Rate
  • NTSC pull-up
  • PAL/SECAM pull-up

Top Build Quality & Easy Mounting Options

Thanks to precise CNC milling manufacturing technology, anodized aluminium alloy materials, original hi-quality connectors and other components, the SBOX-1N is not only durable but versatile.

It is also easy to mount the SBOX-1N due to its compact dimensions and lightweight. It is one of the smallest TV and WC generators on the market. You can mount it on most camcorders, digital cinema cameras, and DSLRs. Betsos offers optional accessories for separate purchase, too, to help with mounting, including their Hot Shoe Holder.

Battery Power

The SBOX-1N is powered by 2x AA batteries, that 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 2x LED diodes.
