Parallel Word Clock Distribution:
Parallel distribution uses a BNC “T-connector” attached to the BNC word clock input of each synchronized digital device. This allows the word clock signal to be sent to that device and then sent on to another. A BNC word clock output on the synchronized device is not used or required for parallel word clock distribution. If the last device in the chain does not have a word clock terminate switch, it will require a BNC terminator plug to be attached to the other side of the “T-connector”. This helps to stabilize the word clock sync as well as to keep the word clock signal clean. Both word clock terminator plugs and BNC T-connectors can be purchased at most recording supply retailers.
