Sync and 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|
