Sync and Reference Generator

Master Sync / Master Clock Reference Generator

Tektronix video sync generators provide facility reference signals and ensure a stable facility timing source. Tektronix signal generators provide test signals for equipment verification and calibration applications, and support a wide variety of analog and digital formats to facilitate your technology transition.

Support for 3 Gb/s SDI and Dual Link SDI formats helps deployment of the latest emerging video technologies. Stay Genlock™ provides a unique, robust genlock mode that ensures stable signal synchronization for digital broadcast facilities. GPS Synchronization and Timecode Module with an integrated GPS receiver provide long-term reference clock stability. Also included are time-of-day and program timecode functions. Tektronix Automatic Changeover units provide facility reference signal redundancy within a Master and Backup SPG system.



Stay Genlock™ technology Maintains the reference clock frequency and phase when the genlock input is removed, reducing the possibility of synchronization shock
GPS-based synchronization Eliminates reference clock drift by continuously aligning to the received timing signal from the GPS satellite constellation
Support for a wide variety of analog and digital video formats Enables transition to SD and HD SDI environments while maintaining analog reference and test signal generation capabilities
Integration of multiple systems into one platform Eliminates the need for separate systems for video sync generation, timecode generation, GPS receiver, and NTP server
Modular form factor (TG 8000) Greater flexibility in creating customer-specific system configurations, and for upgrading existing systems with new modules as they become available


Tektronix Master Sync and Clock reference Generator the SPG8000 provides facility reference signals to ensure a high reliable stable facility timing source. This video provides an overview of the…
